“Right Now”

Posted by on Mar 10, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

I have written recently about my thoughts on capturing today’s moments and what they mean to you. Everyone has their own stories and their own feelings of family and relationships. I posed the following question to a friend and client before her family’s portrait session. “What does ‘right now’ mean to you and your family?” If you don’t mind, I would like to share her response as I feel it can relate to many of us.
