I am a little bit obsessed with taking pictures. If I could capture every single moment of the girls’ lives with my camera, I would. I think it’s because when I get older and look back on this time, I want to be able to remember the little things that happened in our lives.
I always look forward to this time of year because it’s the time of year that we send out holiday cards. It’s such a beautiful time to update friends and family on what is going on in our lives and it also gives me the best excuse to schedule to have our photos taken by a professional (and not me with my iPhone camera.)
This year I had the rare opportunity to have our photographer Meg, from our wedding, take our holiday photos. She holds such a special place in my heart because she captured one of the happiest days of my life in beautiful photos. When I found out that she was coming to NYC, I immediately asked if she would take photos of our family. Unfortunately my husband had to work the day that they were in town, but I still took advantage of it because this was something that didn’t happen very often.
Meg captured so many incredible moments of me and the girls. I don’t have many photos with just the three of us. I am always the one behind the camera capturing them on camera. I never take the time to step in front of it and capture the moments with just us.
This was Avery’s first time braving my annual (oh yes, it’s annual) “fall photo shoot” and she did great. Take a look at some of my favorite moments captured on that beautiful morning in Central Park with just me and my girls.
