This is us | West Chester, PA Family Photographer

As much as we take photographs for our own personal memories, we also take them for our children to look back at years from now. Their favorite images will be the ones that stir up memories of their childhood: ordinary moments from everyday life. For me, these ordinary, often simple moments are the ones that make life extraordinary.

Lately, we love to take bike rides around the neighborhood.  It wasn't all that long ago that Leah couldn't even figure out how to pedal her bike.  All of a sudden, she's biking up hills.  Sophie especially loves it when Dad is home; with an extra set of hands, she gets to "ride" her bike too, as opposed to being up in my wrap.  I love family time out of the house - away from the draw of electronics, the stack of dishes next to the sink, and the never ending to-do lists.  It's a time where we can just be us.    

Up next in our "This Is Us" blog circle is Candy at Suga Shoc Photography.  Please click through to see her gorgeous images and read a beautiful post about her daughter.

The photographs that are close to my heart are ones that happen between posed portraits. These ordinary moments are the ones that make life extraordinary.

I’d love to hear from you if you are in the Chester County or Main Line area and looking for a lifestyle newborn, child, or family photographer.  I would be honored to capture these fleeting moments for you and your family.
