Time feels like a constant pull in opposite directions. I feel myself longing to see what my future holds yet praying for time to stop. To hold my babies for just one more second. To remember the little moments. I am blessed as a photographer to be able to capture these moments and hold them forever on paper but photos are so much more than just seeing the memory. It is about feeling the moment.
Life is so powerful and amazing when you are gifted at being so totally present in that moment in time. When you are in a moment and feel yourself in complete gratitude for everything around you. It is so hard for me to describe. I can feel that feeling right now but to put it into words is a struggle for me. If you have felt that feeling before, you know what I am talking about and you are a lucky one.
I feel it every time I carry Jake off to bed and think to myself “will this be the last time I craddle my boy?” And at that exact moment, I feel it. It is when I feel myself at peace with time passing.
When I think about this feeling, I think about all the time I spend with my families. Specifically the Martinmaas family and about the magical chaos that comes with having a beautifully large family. It’s an indescribable feeling so I hope you get a tiny glimpse of that through these images.
