smile are a laugh or an emotion in a child it's it's very special way living in a different country way came a long way weigh only have ourselves as a small unit and therefore it is important to have pictures to capture our lives as we go along his journey families my whole life, there's nothing. I would rather have a family, you know, when I think back the four tricks that we've had done, there's, there's, actually two that I'm very thing will have, and both are with my children and my husband, my husband is a great camera shy, so it was just incredible for me to be able teo see him holding your son at six weeks old and have a beautiful portrait of that. And then again for my daughter when she was the same age, six weeks old and just that special bond you see with them on the cameras, just it's, it takes my breath away. I love those pictures. I spent fourteen years trying to have children in them like he had something I just feel like they're growing up so fast. Sometimes I wantto go back that baby stage like, can I just love to fill my whole house with all their pictures? Photo albums? I just can't get enough pictures family is the best gift you've ever been given family is number one above everything else to me family is everybody that you've met in your life that made a difference in your life, whether it be your kids, your grandparents, or maybe even your best friend, family and family is unconditional left family is joy. Peace life excitement adventure family is everything there is one particular portrait that we have hanging above our fireplace in our home and I don't know where my life would be today without it and that's the image I have cradling my son maddox maddox was six days old when he died he was my fourth child my second son again I don't know where I would be where my life would be where we would be as a family right now without those portrait ce I have several photographs of our son matics several that were taken with my own digital camera and then I have images of maddox and my husband myself done through photographer sandy putsch and those images that I look back on with matics they're they're beautiful they are there in black and white they are comforting they are classic they're peaceful images some of the images that I look back off on my digital camera there in color you can see the colors of the wires that were connected to him the bruising of the skin the orange tape that he had taped on its mouth to hold his respirator in those images they're not peaceful to me looking at those images bring me right back into the moment of when we lost maddox and that painful painful time in our life and to see the images done by sandy they just they bring a calmness to me in a piece to me and not just to myself but to my whole family and you know sandy thank you for doing that for us somebody once described the definition to family to me and this is a quote that I also have in maddox is memory book and it says family is a group of closely related people but people who do not necessarily dwell and the same home so I like to think of myself and my family here on earth in our earthly home and that mad ex twelves in his heaven thie opportunity to capture a family's memory is a privilege way should not take this privilege slightly but treat each session like it could never be captured again because it can't long after our work here is done someone will gaze into her images and see a reflection of their life their history and have loved ones long gun in each portrait we create there is a story a moment stopped captured and documented in the press of a shutter are the on ly a single moment in time within the image there's a lifetime of love hope enjoy I'm only crying because it over okay guess what you can go home now thank you very much thank you I just want to say sandy thank you on behalf of photographers and creative live family members around the world welcome to our family um thank you everyone and let's give sandy a big round no

This is my first Creative Live course and I'm very happy with it. I don't have a studio but it was very helpful to understand how to begin a career as a baby photographer. I like the way Sandy explains what she does. You see that she loves her job. I'm glad to have known about Now I Lay me Down To Sleep project. I'm not an english speaker so I'd like there were english subtitles 'cause when she speaks very quickly I miss a lot of words... Thanks Creative Live team!
