Welcome Little Newborn Ryan, fresh into this world just two weeks ago.
Along with Ryan came big brother Anthony and little sister Peyton. Being the youngest of the three, I’m sure he’ll have it easier 😉
Here is a little sample of their session.
When you look up “family” in the dictionary, this is what you get “a social unit consisting of one or more adults together with the children they care for”
That’s pretty basic, almost cold sounding. With the Collins family you get much more than that. You get a mom and dad who care and provide deeply for their children. You get older and younger sisters and brother who still have fun with each other, love each other, argue with each other and help each other. A family that still do things together as a family. A mom who always remembers to call me when it’s that time again for family photos. “Melissa’s going away to college soon, I need family photos” =) Mom, understands the importance of family images. I’m not saying this because I photograph people, but it really is important to have photos of family and friends. I also mean paper photos you can hold in your hand, carry around and look at whenever you want, and share with whoever you want. You can’t tape cd’s or a thumbnail drive to that poster board at your daughters 16th, 18th or 21st birthday party. or Mom or Dads 50th. =) When news stations cover a tornado or hurricane and visit the victims, one of the first things they panic about is losing all their family photos.
Having lost a lovely young daughter, I know first hand how important it is to have photos. Lots of them. Sometimes it’s the only thing that helps.
So, another year goes by, the kids get older. Some move out, some move far away. But, as long as you have those photos, at any time you can go back and relive any moment you like.
Here are a few of those moments…and silly ones =)
