I love doing this.
It's difficult to put into words why. But, I think it has to do with the fact that doing this puts an image to the love families have for each other, even when real life is always happening, doesn't take a break, and doesn't always look so picture perfect.
I know for me that I find it difficult to feel like a great parent sometimes. Sometimes, as a working mother, it’s just difficult not to feel like you missed something.
Except for when you see my photo albums or the photo collages on my walls.
My gift to families is being able to put imagery to what they actually feel for each other. At the end of the day, they can look at those photos and know they did something right. I imagine that they put these in their scrapbooks and on their walls, just like me, look at them and say, "Look at all that love. This is us."
And I imagine that it makes them take a second away from life to go squeeze one of their littles just a little tighter and a little longer that day.
