remembering your now...

One of the main pieces of advice we received when we became new parents was to savor every moment because little ones grow up so fast. But at first, it seemed as if we would forever be in the land of sleepless nights and monotonous days. Yet days were ticked off the calendar and before we knew it, we were donating our highchair to friends and preparing for kindergarten. Where did the time go?

Looking back through all of our pictures, we're reminded of the chubby cheeks and toothless grins, the favorite toys and blankets. The images of our girls froze time and enabled us to remember the sweet chaos of life when we had little ones.

It's Melaina's PASSION to provide the same gift for other families. In our lifestyle family portrait session, Melaina comes into your home, into the natural rhythm and element of your family, and photographs it all. The sweet images of siblings together, the family interacting as they normally would, the details of your child's room, the details of real life lived. 

Don't just wait until you feel like you have it "together" enough to have posed family portraits made. Schedule a lifestyle in-home session to capture and remember your now.
