You may delay, but time will not.

The picture below is of my uncle David - my mom's youngest brother - I remember my mom taking it. Uncle David couldn't have been much older than 20 and was soon heading to Alberta for work. The scary thing about coming across this image today is that just two weeks ago, uncle David celebrated his 50th birthday! 
While I'm glad mom thought to take this picture - there's an image I would love to have but was never taken. I remember being a kid and bugging my uncle to play with me. We'd go for walks on the train tracks at my grandmother's place - I'd ramble on and he would listen. He was a cool guy I looked up to that made time for me. I would love to have a picture of uncle David and I walking on the train tracks when I was a kid - I feel like somehow that image could help to solidify and preserve that memory. 
I would love to hear from you - about images you're thankful were taken or you wish had of been. Please feel free to comment below.
This may explain my efforts to capture my family on the tracks now :)
We make time every year to have our family pictures done and just looking back 4-years since Sophia was born we are blown away by how much has changed!
We all know that time goes by too fast when you have kids. We frequently hear from parents that it's been years since they've had family pictures done. So it's no trouble to convince parents that having a family session is a good idea - our challenge is to help parents book a date and just do it! 
In our experience, setting a date for family pictures is one of the easiest things to put off to another day. Parents want to get their hair done or lose a little weight or - this time of year - wait for better weather.  
Our advice - don't worry about your hair, weight or weather - the right photographer will be able to capture who you are as a family in a flattering way. While we enjoy our family pictures as parents now, we're pretty confident that Sophia, our daughter will appreciate them even more as the years pass. 
So, find someone you're comfortable with to document your family today!
