Marie Q Life Unposed – The Blog » Lifestyle Photography with a fresh twist!

I tried everything, sneezing, funny sounds, singing (my poor clients), jumping up and down, tickling…EVERYTHING.  He just wasn’t going to crack today.  His mom played a video on her phone of him giggling.. nothing.  Doesn’t matter, I’m still in LOVE with this picture.  Those cheeks, that mouth, his eyes.

This was the closest we got.  So handsome in his suit!  He already knows how to rock a tie.

Be Good!

If you are facebook friends with me, you may have seen a post I shared.  The photograph is powerful, the words make it meaningful.  For those of you who aren’t friends, I’m posting it below.  THIS IS NOT MY PHOTOGRAPH OR MY WORDS, but I was so moved by it that I felt compelled to offer all mothers a session with their children throughout the month of May in honor of Mother’s Day.  The mini session cost is $50 and expect something very simple short and sweet that will provide you with images that you will remember forever. Call the studio at 972-937-9511 to book your session

If you have ever been to my studio, you may have noticed  I  have three images of my daughter and I framed on my wall in the viewing room. I treasure those photos.  I never get tired of looking at them.  In fact one of those photos is on my iPhone case and I get grief about having a photo of myself on MY phone from my family (meanies).  It doesn’t bother me, it’s not a vanity thing.  I love my daughter so much and that photograph reminds me of it every time I look at it.

Take the time to have photos made with your children.  Don’t make excuses, get in the photo.  I promise… you will hold these close to your heart.

Enjoy!

“Letter from a Mother to a Daughter: “My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”… Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep. When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl? When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way… remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life’s issues every day… the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If I occasionally lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you. And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked. When those days come, don’t feel sad… just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love. I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you… my darling daughter. “

Dragon tales and the “water is wide”
Pirate’s sail and lost boys fly
Fish bite moonbeams every night
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

The rocket racer’s all tuckered out
Superman’s in pajamas on the couch
Goodnight moon, will find the mouse
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

God bless mommy and match box cars
God bless dad and thanks for the stars
God hears “Amen,” wherever we are
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Godspeed
Godspeed
Sweet dreams
