I am a believer in capturing moments and special occasions in life. We, as many other parents, have thousands of pictures from our travels, of Sophia, of … life. Most of these pictures we take ourselves, however there comes a time when we deem it worth it to let someone else do this for us.
Evan’s parents took many pictures of their kids growing up. There were family celebrations, portraits, and every day moments. Their family room is adorned with them and I think it is beautiful. My parents did the same, though much more so for my sister (their firstborn) than me. They also couldn’t bring all of their pictures over form the Soviet Union, so I don’t have as many. I miss that and I don’t want Sophia to feel this way two decades down the line. Besides, I am sure that I won’t look any younger as time goes on, so I may as well try to capture more pictures for her — now.
To commemorate Sophia’s upcoming 2nd birthday and our recent 5th year anniversary, we commissioned Hans and Nichole to capture a few memories on film. We prefer casual, unposed, relaxed pictures and here are just a few from the many they took.
