your first question is most likely how much?
but I know from experience that your first question should be
my own daughter is now 12, & if I did have a genie with 3 wishes, my first would be for better photographs from her sweetest of days.
digital photography & professional editing software has greatly changed the possibilities of what we can capture, & what we can do with those images!
so maybe it’s your child’s birthday,
or yours . . .
but maybe it’s just another day in the life of some very, very quickly passing years.
years of which you’ll have two things.
& photographs including memories.
this is Logan.
on a cold, & new years day . . .
a regular day, but one representing another season of beginnings.
& one that represents another season’s endings as well.
i’m grateful to know this young man’s mother.
& to catch glimpses of their life.
looking at these images, you might see a little boy with cute blonde curls . . .
but his mother sees her own story unfolding.
& i see a young man in the making.
a man after God’s own heart.
but I only know that, & am able to see that,
because for whatever reason, his mother shares pieces of their story, & hers with me . . .
I know her heart is after His.
her words with me, & with Logan reflect that.
this young man will know the goodness of our Lord.
because his mother does.
& what you’ll see in your images will be the same.
pieces of your story.
& what your heart reflects.
