It’s all smiles on Day 1. Well, until you start to remember and feel what it was like to bring them into the world. Regardless how your children come to you there is always a bit of pain and anguish involved, at least for me. Then you realize you will never again have a restful night’s sleep, go the bathroom alone, or take daily showers for granted. There are benefits to make you forget: kisses, snuggles, smiles, and the way they smell after a bath. You just want to breathe it all in so you never forget. Those are just the early years. My job is just to make sure there are photographs (and video) for your children and future grandchildren to experience how it was too. Let me not lie, it is also so that when they are raging teenagers full of hormones and attitude you have a few family films and albums to remember when they were so little and cute. Everybody needs this.
The first year goes by so quickly. They go from being a tiny baby to a walking and talking toddler in a span of 12 months. Watch a yearbook film and if you aren't 100% convinced then this isn't for you.
