Scott at 6 weeks


My little man is already 6 weeks old. He and I were having some quality mommy time tonight after all of the other kids had gone to bed. He was so happy and was smiling and cooing. It was very sweet. He is growing up so fast already. I wish I could stop time.

I think that one of the reasons I love photography so much is I feel I get to stop time for that instant. I get to capture who or what that person was in that exact moment in time. As hard as we try to remember how something or someone was in the past, our memory fades and the little details are slowly lost in time. But with a picture, you get to look at them and relive those sweet moments all over again. Tender feeling that were felt when the picture was taken are rekindled; senses aware of how things felt, smelled, sounded, and looked; and the memory once again, if only for a short while, is restored.

I often feel as Alice in Wonderland who proclaimed, "In my world, books would be nothing but pictures" Oh what a joyful place that would be.

Time does slip by too quickly... Thanks for the post. I took out my camera and captured some sweet moments with my little 15 month old comparing our boo boos.
