I’m a little behind all of the top ten lists that come out for the Best of 2019 at the New Year. But I believe it’s never too late to look back at some of the best family photos of 2019.
Last year I was able to be a part of so many wonderful moments in families’ lives. I watched them celebrate new beginnings, new puppies, new siblings, and new homes. To me, the best family photography is about connections and last year had no shortage of great moments.
Then there’s your connection to your family home. It was a privilege to capture memories of kids jumping on their parents’ giant beds, playing hide-and-seek in their shared bedrooms or spending quiet moments in their lovingly designed nurseries.
And then there’s mom – always ready with a feel-better hug and a snack. I salute you! You’re just asking your children to sit still for one second and look at the camera, so you can have great photos of everyone together. And you make it happen!
I’m grateful every day that this is my job and passion. As I celebrate my 10th year in business with Twirl Photography, I’m taking my own moment to look back at the last year. Professionally and personally, this year was a busy one filled with meaningful days that seemed to fly by.
As a parent, I too want to stop time. Photography has that power, and I’m grateful to have the skill, training and passion for a lifelong career as a photographer. I look at these images of families and say, “Oh yes, that happens to me all the time.” I see things that my own children do: that little bit of willfulness, those deep-rooted friendships, that sibling competition, an ever-present dad admiration (come on, he never has the snacks!) – and an often overwhelming love.
These are my favorite moments from 2019 because it’s never too late to look back before you move forward.￼ Make sure to check out the video at the bottom to see more. And please contact me about the memories you want to capture in 2020!
