Family Photos

 A few months back I had the opportunity to have a mother/daughter portrait session with Kelli Wilke.  I just received the pictures and to say that I absolutely love them would be an understatement!  I may be slightly obsessed!  She is so, so talented and was really great to work with.

As a mom, I am almost always the one behind the camera.  And, as much as I love taking pictures and capturing those memories, I also think that it is important to have pictures together.  My own mother passed away when I was 16 years old.  I don't have a ton of pictures of us together, but I truly treasure those snapshots that I do have.  There is nothing that can replace them.

Some people find it silly or frivolous to spend money on professional portraits, and that's OK.  But, I think that it is so important that we get in the pictures with our families.  Even if it's just a quick selfie, get in the picture!  Even if you are insecure about the way you look, get in the picture!  Even if it's just a snapshot and not a professional portrait, get in the picture!  Those pictures will be treasured memories down the line, and a reminder of the love you share as a family.  Time passes quickly and, once it's gone, we can't get it back.  Children grow up, parents age, and all we have to show for time are memories and photographs.

If you are in the Wilmington/Philadelphia area and are looking for a photographer, I can't say enough great things about Kelli.  Not only are her portraits beautiful, but she is there every step of the way to help you decide on which photos and products you want.  She can even use a picture of your wall to show you exactly how different products will look in your space!
