First smiles, first steps, first birthdays – all celebrated and documented for the honored moments that they are. The “last” moments sneak up on us. All of a sudden we realize that our children are too big to carry to bed, or they don’t call ice cream “shim shim” anymore. We spend our days just getting through, and don’t realize that these beautiful moments are the things that make up life!
Everyday Life Sessions were created out of Mike and Kari’s personal project for their own family which started almost five years ago. In an effort to honor what they value as parents, they began documenting all the little things that happen in the everyday. Their goal was to freeze time, even just for a moment.
We realize that each and every day our little ones change just a tiny bit. We want to give you the gift of preserving the memories of them, just as they are now, for years to come. Family memories are made, not in the perfect positioning or matching outfits on your Christmas card, but instead in the beautiful mess that makes up our everyday life. Show me your favorite toy. Let me see how you paint a rainbow. What’s your favorite book to read? Who tucks you in at night? We want those moments, and you do too. Because this season should be remembered forever.
Our desire is to allow every moment to be its own, and our job is only to catch a small glimpse. We don’t dictate it, we don’t change what it is going to be. We just go where the story takes us.
