InHOME Lifestyle: Princess #2

I need to just face facts...

I'm a hoarder of memories...

I have boxes and boxes in my basement...that I like to call "time capsules"

These boxes are filled with pictures, snapshots, mementos, tiny shoes, dried flowers, old programs to shows, records (yes, and even my old record player)...I could literally just go on and on...

Why do I keep all this stuff?

For me, everything is attached with a memory...

My favorites are the pictures...the ones that show my brother and me when we were toddlers...the shag carpet, the baby toys...our first dog, Sammy...

There is something not just nostalgic, but a feeling of belonging perhaps...a knowing of my past???

I love the trend that is slowly unfolding for InHome lifestyle sessions...because it promotes the idea of a time capsule of sorts...

...a way to freeze time...capture an interaction...seize a moment...

This little girl's home is cozy and quaint...and she has explored every nook and cranny...

She's the epitome of the inquisitive toddler...the big, bright eyes, the chubby hands, the climbing legs...she imitates mommy and reaches her arms for her daddy to hold her up high...

It wasn't that long ago that I had been at this same home photographing her first weeks of life...

time keeps ticking by...and she's now making room for baby sister...

This is their story...they are writing the chapters...these are the memories that will be imprinted on the tender hearts of these precious girls...

...and what I saw wasn't all about a perfect picture...

oh sure, we have documentation of the beautiful nursery and lovely flowers...of baby dolls and jewelry...all the little details that add to the story...but I more so saw things that weren't necessarily tangible, and yet, they were so, so evident...

I saw the:

Loving, 
Sharing, 
Belonging, 
Gentleness, 
Appreciation, 
Truth...

These are the memories that are treasured....this is the integrity of family...this is the character building, the everyday, the concentrating on hearts and not just outward or material things...

These are the things that are stored up and passed down...these are the relationships that stand the test of time...

These darling girls have a lifetime of memories ahead of them, to gather and then to share...
