When Christmas has passed and bringing in the new year seems like a distant memory it is often a great time to start thinking about what the year ahead holds. You may have a big celebration coming up or a family gathering and sometimes the normal, everyday moments in life can get overlooked. This is where I would say take a minute and think about whether you captured enough of your everyday moments last year and can you make a change going forward.
I recently lost my wonderful Granny B and it quickly became apparent how important photographs were to remember her when she was a youthful 80 years old with a cheeky spark in her eyes. Family photographs don’t need to happen for a special occasion, they are simply remembering a moment in time; maybe you have a new addition, maybe you never get a family photo of you all together, maybe you just want to document each year as the time flies by so fast. In 2018 I lost my grandma but gained a beautiful niece, who is named in memory of my grandma’s mum, and I am so grateful that I have taken the time to capture them both at different times in their lives. Photos of both Sheila and Lucie are below along with some of my other favourite images from Autumn of last year. Capture those moments guys, you never know when you might treasure those photos one day!!
