My first born just turned ten and I can hardly believe it! It seemed like yesterday when it was 2007 and we brought her home from the hospital.

I’ve always said that time is moving too fast for me, but I really think having children speeds it up even faster.
It’s a bittersweet feeling that I’m sure many of you can relate to. You’re happy and thankful that they’re growing up strong, smart and healthy. At the same time, you still want to hold on to them being your baby, even if they have way outgrown that baby stage.
The one thing I don’t hear many people mention when talking about their kids getting older is the fact that as they grow older, so do we the parents. You see the gray hairs growing in and your youth slipping away. This to me is the bittersweet part. I think it’s because I still feel like a kid myself, yet I know I am not…or am I? 😃👶🏻
The first ten years of Zoe’s life brought many profound changes transforming a baby to a young girl. The next ten years will change her from a young girl to a young woman and turn her dad into old man 😢
Oh I’m getting ahead of myself now! Ok let’s cherish the moment! Please allow me today to share with you some of my favorite images of Zoe from the past ten years, using and testing many different cameras and lenses along the way. Most I used for a short time, then sold. Many I wished I had kept, at least for a little while longer 😘
The best fringe benefit about having a kid as far as I’m concerned is justifying your gear purchases because you’re capturing precious memories of your children and that is priceless! 😊
Happy 10th Birthday Zoe!!
