Things I want to remember
I’m a family photographer working throughout Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. Sometimes…. when I’ve been working loads… the last thing I feel like doing is photographing my own children. Especially as they tend towards a behaviour called “photographer’s child disorder” whereby they’ve been practised on and photographed so much, they are now incapable of behaving normally in front of my camera!
But today was different. I took some shots… just for me… and I LOVED it!
Childhood memories want to remember
We hung out with our great friends and played in the fields. Despite the workload I have piled up, I remembered how important it is to document the small everyday things I don’t want to forget once they’re grown up… like playing hide-and-seek in the long grass, and running in the late afternoon sunlight. Photographing all those little details is really important, as you can forget so quickly how young and little they were.
While some of these photographs may never go up on my wall, they’ll certainly make it into my yearly photo albums. Then for years to come I will remember how her hair was wild and unruly and caught the sunlight beautifully, and how he was always smiley with his hands and face grubby from playing outside all day. These are the things I want to remember.
