Someday, you’ll look back at the good ol’ days. You know the ones. The mundane motions of day-to-day life. Simultaneously filled with laughter and happiness and exhaustion and overwhelm. All the emotions, all the milestones – big and little. When you’re in them, they have an odd way of feeling like they’ll always be around. Then suddenly, poof. They’re gone. There are no more little feet running down the hallway in the early morning. No more cries to be held, no more snuggles before bedtime, no more playful giggles filling your home.
You’ve all grown up a bit, and while it’s wonderful to experience new things as a family, you long for those early years. The small details, often forgotten in the grand scheme of things, are the ones you want the most. The sweet smell of baby hair, the feeling of your little one wrapped up safely in your arms. The soft touch of a little hand, walking together on an adventure. If only you could go back one more time. Film photography is magical like that. It can make you feel those emotions all over again. The catch?
