“My camera takes my eyes off me and helps me focus on what is most important. It helps me see my children for what they really are, an incredible gift. My camera takes my eyes off my to do list, my shortcomings and failures and helps me see my children for who they are, little ones that are full of wonder and laughter and adventure. With my camera in hand I don’t notice dirty floors, piles of dishes, mountains of laundry, but I do stop and notice sweet conversations between siblings, giggles, teamwork, individual personalities, excitement, and so much more. I take pictures because it reminds me that joy is worth fighting for, grace is made for me because I need it the most and kindness makes children bloom. I take pictures because I must. Through pictures I can see how I am being a changed, stretched and grown into beautiful things.”

We take pictures for all kinds of reasons. Because there’s something about capturing that one perfect thing and knowing you’ll have it forever. Because something about the click of the shutter reminds us that this is a moment to be thankful for. Because we’re a little sentimental and we wish they’d stay this small forever, but capturing it makes it feel a little easier to let go and embrace the new.
Together, these thousands of tiny remarkable moments we’ve captured tell our family’s story. We know the story starts in places only we remember, so it’s up to us to tell it. But the challenge has been to find the time and an easy way to tell it.
The Albums is the easiest way to document your family’s days both online and in print so that you can quickly ensure that these moments will never be forgotten.
