From the First Year Portrait all the way though High School,
I want to help you celebrate all that your child is – because they matter.
Picture your child. This is the face you have loved from the moment you first saw it. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t truly understand what love was until our daughter made us a family. More learning takes place in the first 6 years of life than in any other stage. Children begin to acquire language, develop cognitive and motor skills, begin to imitate the adults around them, and develop expectations of the world around them. These first short years are the bases, the foundations of their lives. Emotionally, they need love and acceptance, respect and understanding, warmth and protection. They also has a need for security, order, as much freedom and independence as he/she can handle, and social relationships.
Between the ages of 6 and 12, children experience great growth physically but it’s the mental growth that really stands out. A vivid imagination kicks in and they need to hear stories of greatness and goodness and moral values. They have a very strong sense of justice and perceived fairness and following the rules becomes very important. They need good role models as they learn about values. You will need to trust that your family values will outlast any sudden social ‘fads’. During this period of growth, they need to know that the adults in their lives love, respect, and understand them – unconditionally.
Childhood comes and goes so quickly. Don’t you wish you could stop time….just for a moment?
Are you looking for a photographer who will take the time to listen to your child in order to photograph them as they truly are?
