I have two boys that are now 12 and 14. I remember spending days creating the perfect room for them when they were little. Austin had a railroad themed room and Logan had a jungle room complete with a huge tree mural. Lots of work but totally worth it when they would run in their room and play for hours.
I was thinking a few weeks ago how cool it would be to capture that for other parents. We often overlook the every day details when we think about photographing our children.
These, are often the best times to capture them.
So I put out a request on Facebook that I was looking for a cool kids room. So, let me introduce you to Dax :)
This room is so stinking amazing! The minute I walked in the light from the window just overtook the room. From the bed, to the items on the walls to Dax's very cool shirt, everything was just as I had hoped it would be.
My favorite moment of the session when we went outside and Dax ran to the fence to his dog, turned around and said " Mrs. Noreen, he is my best friend" Yeah, I kinda love you Dax :)
Our kids are only little once, and they grow up so fast. Before you know it your painting over those walls that you spend hours creating.
Why not stop those moments in time.
When I posted the very first picture after the session I will never forget Dax's moms words.
" I love it! My sweet guy! This moment is so etched on my heart!"
