We wait patiently for his motorcycle to turn the corner on our street.

Once his familiar shape appears in the distance, smiles erupt.

Tiptoes are activated in order to catch the best view of his face.

Pixel waits less patiently, and insists on being in front.

Tails wag, giggles sneak out, and someone’s greeting can be heard in the distance.

Snuggles are insisted upon, and happily given.

Here's the funny thing about family photos.

We tend to value them the most when our kids are young. Growing, changing, never staying still for more than two seconds at a time.

We make time for them, plan photo sessions around big birthdays and milestones, and celebrate each new month.

Then the years pass by and the kids don't change as much. Or as quickly.

We look at the lovely pre-teen or teenagers in front of us and imagine their groans of despair if we mention taking photos or scheduling a shoot. So we don't. We let it slide.

But this. This?? This is what you're missing.

You need these memories. 

Your pre-teens and teenagers grow up just as quickly as your little bitty babies. And they deserve to be remembered too.

Rachel (and Jeremy!) - we did it again! :) I'm so so thankful for the chance to photograph your family countless times over the last decade. Who would've thought we'd be still going at it so many years later? Thanks for allowing me the chance to watch your itty bitty babies grow up to be lovely mini adults. Love you guys so much!!
