I’d give all wealth that years have piled,
The slow result of life’s decay,
To be once more a little child
For one bright summer day.Lewis Carroll
Why Kids Moving Pictures?
Life is precious. Our babies are precious and then in the blink of an eye, that tiny bundle of joy starts smiling, laughing, crawling then walking and talking! They run around. You marvel and say “Wow! I can’t believe how much they’ve grown! Where has the time gone?!”
Before you know it they’re off to kinder and returning home with lots of little handmade creations. Then all too soon it’s their first day of ‘big kid’ school. Each morning, you walk them into school and wave them off as they head to their classroom. You pick them up in the afternoon and look forward to hearing about their day. There are so many changes. That little person of yours is really finding their feet. Coming into their own. They dazzle you with all of the interesting new things they’re learning.
Before you can even ask yourself, “Where has the time gone?!”, you’re waving them off to high school. And quick as a flash, graduation day arrives – high school is over for good and for the millionth time you ask yourself – “Where did the time go?!”.
From a precious little baby to an amazing young adult – it happens all too quickly. Time flies.
Creating Kids Moving Pictures is my way of messing with time. A way to freeze it – make it stop, even if for a few short moments. It’s a way to document, celebrate and preserve childhood. It’s a way to embrace change and growth and to chart the transformation from little people to big people.
My heart warms with the thought that as time passes you will have these precious and emotive keepsakes to look back upon, able to rewind time to see your children as they really were: sounds of their laughter and voices, their young faces shining and pure, riding scooters or bicycles or with pointed toes on a swing, singing nursery rhymes or the latest pop song, joyful, young and innocent.
I hope I can create a moving picture for you and your family, a memento with the power to transport you back in time to the ‘bright days’ that pass way too quickly.
