My Life Story - recording your child's memories and milestones by Secret Smile Photography, Leeds baby photographer
 My Life Story - Sylvie part 2
 

Every time I start talking to someone about their children I tell them about My Life Story and what I am trying to get people to take part in. This project makes me no money, it's not an excuse to talk people into have a photography session done, it is simply my desire to get people to record as much as possible about their children before the little details are forgotten.

 

What I have noticed is that most people have a preference for the media they record. Some people, like Sylvie's mum Vicki, favour photographs and sharing them on social media, some people prefer to keep all the drawings their child does at school, some people keep a journal of day to day to life. These are all fantastic ways of recording the little details so we can look back on them and remember.

 

The very gorgeous Little Miss Sylvie came back to Secret Smile HQ for another little mini session to update her My Life Story and in the 4 short weeks since I had seen her last she had changed so much!

I love that Sylvie's mum, Vicki, always looks so fabulous and I love seeing the connection between the two of them. I sometimes find when I am photographing new families that I feel a little bit like I am intruding when parents are with their gorgeous new babies and you can see the amazing connection and the love that flows between them but that is why my job is so very important. These moments need to be captured and frozen in time so they can be looked back on.

 

Here are some of the images from Sylvie's second mini session and already you can see how much more focused and expressive she is. I even managed to capture her 'crying face', maybe not always the most photogenic of images but it's still a part of life so it should be recorded as part of My Life Story.

My Life Story is important. It is an on-going project to show you just how much children change in a short space of time. A year goes so quickly. We all say it  "oh my gosh, how can it be Christmas already?! This year has just FLOWN by" and we're all so busy - life whizzes past in a haze of work, school runs, packed lunches, grazed knees, birthdays, laughter, tears and well, just life. Record as much of it as possible because it is all so very precious.

 

To join in with the My Life Story revolution please do pop over to the My Life Story page on Facebook where you can send a request to join the closed group. Come along and share stories and photographs of your children in a closed group that only contains parents who want to record their children's memories. Pick up ideas on how to record you child's special memories and hear what others have to say about their amazing children.
