I love this family! So much fun hanging out with them. I mean “work”, work with them;)

Every time I see them I have great time, great pictures and tones of laughs!

Even though daddy wasn’t feeling to well he gave some good smiles for camera, mama look gorges as always.

And Max is a big boy and a big brother now. He is getting more and more handsome every year…And his little sister! What a cute! Don’t you just wanna eat her? I do:)

As I said, I love “Work Sundays” like that.

The beauty of my job is that I smile a lot during it. First when I photograph family time in the park. Then when I edit pictures and I see all those happy faces and beautiful moments I was able to capture. And then in the end when I receive emails with all those kind words from my happy clients. Wait. They are not my clients, they’re my friends. After every photo shoot I feel like I gained new friend. I mean, what can be a better job than that?

My husband pointed something out the other day, something that I didn’t even think about. Parents are the ones who ask me to photograph their children and them, but these photographs aren’t only for the parents, they’re for the children too. What a nice thing for a child to someday be able to see themselves when they were younger and to see how much love their parents are filled with. I think it’s fantastic that they will have an image revealing how much they are loved by mommy and daddy.

This moment is more precious than you think

A couple of weeks ago I spent a gorgeous Sunday afternoon with this lovely family. When we were walking through the park we found this written on the pavement, ” This moment is more precious than you think”. It’s such a perfect quote for that day. It’s a perfect quote for everyday. That’s why I’m a photographer; to capture these moments, so after they pass, you can always come back to them.

They say when you have a baby everything changes, life as you knew it is over.

I didn’t see that change until now. It’s not how your everyday life changes but how your relationships change with everyone you know.

Everyone treats  you, and thinks of you, differently; your husband, family, friends, those with and those without kids.

You’re a mom now. You in the mommy club and now you hang out talking about diaper rash, teething, and naps. “Babies” is a never ending topic.

At the same time you’re off the “I need a talk” list, the “Let’s get a drink” list, and the “What’s my friend doing?” list. Your friends without kids are sure you don’t have time, energy or a sitter, and that all you’re interested in is kids.

Your family, your husband, your friends all they see is your baby; they don’t see you anymore.

And you feel that way about yourself too!

And that’s what’s so hard for me.

I feel like I’m behind this curtain.

I’m always there, but no one sees me.

I know Teo sees me. I’m center of his world. And the way he looks at me melts my heart.

Being a mom is the most beautiful and amazing journey of my life.

I still can’t believe how lucky I am to have him. I can’t imagine my life without him.

I just wish people would remember that I am here.
