The only regret I have about the first years of both my daughters' lives is that we didn't invest in professional family photography. Like many busy mums, it just wasn't something I saw as a priority at the time. I didn't really know how to use a proper camera at that stage of my life and so I just snapped away on my phone with varying results! But I do think back now and wish that I had some really nice photos of myself and my husband with our daughters...(don't worry - I'm more than making up for it these days).
One of the many things I love about my photography journey is being able to capture beautiful memories for others and I'm so glad that a close relative of this gorgeous Carshalton family gifted a photography session to them. Tickles with mummy, kisses from daddy, those chubby little arms and legs, and just the pure joy of early family life is something they will now be able to look back on and cherish forever. Don't let these years pass you by! They're just too important not to capture.
