KIDS WERE HERE | April 2013

Here we are already with our second installment of KIDS WERE HERE- a project devoted to documenting our lives with children. It’s amazing the way I see life differently – a new perspective on toys strewn about, crumbs on the table, shoes lined up at the door- for reals! All the things I like to capture not only for me, but for my clients as well!

“These still life images serve as a daily reminder that my days are awash in chaos, whimsy, laughter and laundry (sometimes all at once). They capture toys and spills and puddles and piles. Sentimental, solitary moments of childhood ephemera. A gentle prodding to live in the now and stop looking toward the “then.” And though sometimes I pray for clean and quiet and still, I know all too well it will come. And I will yearn for tiny shrieks of laughter in my bedroom. For toys and loveys strewn about. For signs of a daily life well lived. For traces of my babies who once were. For reminders that Kids Were Here–and they were life and light and love.” – Stephanie Beaty

    abby - Love the marks of kids in our lives! And, I also just realized where we got a bean bag from…oops…how and WHEN did that get in our house? Perhaps years ago along with Logan’s train that we just returned this past year. 🙂ReplyCancel
