A slight stray from my lifestyle blogging, but when I have an amazing session I need to brag about it! The beautiful Lajcaj family made me nothing more than happy when I was photographing them. And when I got home to see what I had captured, I fell in love with every single image. These babies are gorgeous and ridiculously fun to be around.
About five minutes after we started, they were on their own little adventure. My job was to follow them around and capture the love they share for each other. That was the easy part! The hardest part was saying good-bye because I didn't want to stop.
Studies show those that have more birthdays, live longer. <Insert your chuckle here> This past weekend was birthday celebration extravaganza. So many birthdays in such a little amount of time, but there is one in particular that sticks out from the rest. My good, ole' pops celebrated another year and what better way to do it with a little bit of family and some dessert?
And as you can suspect, I broke out the camera to capture some of those raw moments and add to my blogging lifestyle adventure. Although once they all realized I was becoming the paparazzi, I was told to sit down, relax and join the Apple to Apple's game that was about to start.
Note: Don't mind the paper made 7 on top of his cake. We had to be creative, considering it slipped my mind to buy some candles.
Photography isn't just about booking sessions, it is about finding the love that a family has. It's about living day in and day out, noticing little things that have happened throughout the day. Little things that most people find unimportant, but I find worth remembering. I don't want to lose the reason I fell in love with photography.
I have this vision of documenting family traditions in real time. No poses. No smile for the camera. Just the simplicity of documenting the times that are truly important to you and your loved ones. Whether it is a yearly tradition with your family or a daily routine with your little ones. Every moment you love is worth remembering.
My little bit of heaven to remember....
