Being a Philadelphia Family Photographer I am always behind the camera it’s rare that I am in front of it. This blog is going to be more personal then my blog’s usually are. My beautiful daughters Veronica and Madison are 14 years old and 11 years old. Over the 14 years of me being a mother there is not nearly enough photos of me in them. It is my biggest regrets that I had a silly reason on why I didn’t want my photo taken. My hair was a mess, I was over weight, my clothes were a mess and the reasons go on. But my kids don’t care about any of that they think I am beautiful because I am their momma.
I made a promise to myself that I would get in more photos with my kids no matter what I looked like or weighed. Over the last few years I have kept the promise to myself silly selfies with my phone, no makeup messy hair or all made up. But I also wanted some beautiful professional photos so we had a local photographer take some beautiful posed photos of us one year. But I really longed for the photos of my family just being us doing the day to day things.
So we hired the amazing Colie of Colie James Photography. She came out to our home and spent the morning just documenting us being us. My husband cooking breakfast with our youngest, me doing their hair, playing board games etc… One photo that was very important to me was all 4 of us in our bed. We have a queen size bed and the girls will want to squeeze in and watch tv with us and I really wanted to have a picture of that memory. These photo’s are my most treasured that we had Colie come back out the year after to take more photos. I will have to share them with you guys in another blog. I have posted a few of my favorite below, I had such a hard time narrowing it down I hope you love them as much as I do!

I love the idea of capturing the everyday moments. The photos are amazing and so is your family. Glad you finally made your debut Jackie!
