It brings me great joy to document extended families. I know that what we are creating will be valued for generations to come. There are so many beautiful relationships to capture too. I loved watching the lovely Dubois-Adams family interact. The shoot revolved around the two little ones. They naturally bring so much joy and are adored.
When asking people what they would save if their house was burning the most common answer is family photos (aside from people and pets of course).
Photos are the hardcopies of our memories and stories, are part of our legacy. We treasure them, hold them close, we pass them down. It’s an incredible gift to be able to share a visual of moments, details, people and places with those we love. It allows us to connect with them and they, too, can feel a glimmer of the joy we feel when we reflect on those times. It brings us together.
Family photos connect us to those who came before. When you share photos from the past with your children, they become connected to their own story. This is powerful!
Thank you to the Dubois-Adams family for trusting me with documenting your family.
