Back on Track

IMG_7784xvsm

Last Saturday was mainly spent driving around doing NADA, which was something sort of amazing. These past few months have been hectic (new house, baby on the way, holidays, blogging world, family responsibilities,…LIFE—the list goes on), and we were stuck in this little engrossed bubble always doing something. Story of everyone’s life, I’m sure.

So, on Saturday—with finally nothing planned—we fit in an impromptu shoot featuring the entire little fam! These photoshoots used to be a regular occurrence, but those moments have been lost through life’s hullabaloo.

We’ve neglected these swiftly fleeting family moments by not capturing them. You may be thinking, “Alanna, live in the moment!” and “Girl, you don’t need to shoot everything”, but that’s not what I mean. Being a Style Blogger, my work life revolves around snapping outfit photos. And when there’s this extended focus on the shoes I’m wearing or the hair colour I’m doting–trickling into our personal life–…something’s UUPP, out of whack, glitched, off track…

Photography plays an important role in our lives (Mat and myself), so making time to capture the places and people that are most important to us, is SO necessary. It puts life back into perspective. These are the images that will be framed on our walls for years to come (Sorry furry coat, there’s no wall space dedicated to you).

This all boils down to finding the balance of life, and days like last Saturday bring me back on track to chaotic routine. It feels REAL good to have time to freeze these special moments again. I’ll be printing off these images to frame on this lonely blank wall I’ve been staring at for too long in 3…,2…,1…

    Oh my goodness! You have the most beautiful family. I can actually really relate to taking photos all the time, I too am a style blogger but the thing I struggle with is putting the camera down. I’ve never regretted taking too many photos! I think it’s wonderful you’re able to find a healthy balance.

      Thank you so much! Totally agree. Every time I take ‘too little’ photos or just plain ol’ forget, I always wished I took a few more. Viewing them after–getting to relive the moments over and over–is so special! xo
