Hope for my Children – Bucks County Photographer | Doylestown, PA

We finally had a HUGE snow day after such a weird and warm winter. Although I did love having a warm winter to go out strolling after big dinners during the holidays, I was secretly wishing for snow on Christmas Day. How does a massive snow storm drum up such sentimental thoughts like hope for my children? Growing up in Singapore, it was always 80-100 degrees all year round so I never got to play in the snow as a kid. Something that a lot of people take for granted. So when we do get it, I love snow. I love the fact that my children will get to experience it like I never did when I was little. Sledding, falling down in the snow and laying there, knowing it will be difficult to get up but it will be so much fun to try. Eating snow, the delicious feeling of it melting on your tongue and knowing that it just came from the sky. It all seems so magical.

I became part of a blog circle this month and it was the perfect time to use it to force myself to take my camera out more. I had to capture my boys playing in the first snow of the season. I wanted to capture their innocence, their love of life, their pure joy at something so simple. It was so much fun watching them appreciate the snow and when they came in all cold and tired, they had a warm cup of hot chocolate waiting for them. I hope that they will remember the feel of the snow melting on their tongue. I hope that they will remember their excitement of waking up in the morning and seeing the blanket of white snow, squealing in delight because they know they will get to go play in it. I hope they will remember the pure joy and exhilaration of jumping on a sled and flying down a small hill. I hope that these memories are the ones that they will recall when they are all grown up, and they see the first snow flake hit the ground…..

  • Christine D - I grew up in the tropics too. While I am certainly a warm weather lover, living with four distinct seasons now has taught me that winter is a good time for reflection. When it is warm outside, we go outside and open doors and windows. When it is cold and snowy, we cuddle up and stay inside and can’t help but think about our lives. I am happy that inspired you to get your camera out and document your children. They will be grown so quickly. You always take such beautiful newborn and family portraits for other people; it is time to document some of your own memories!ReplyCancel

You are so right about certain areas of the world taking for granted having all four seasons and enjoying the different weather that each one brings.

  • Jennifer - This is an amazing experience for them, and a great capture of memories for you all. As a true Floridian born and raised I have never seen snow. I don’t feel I am missing out because I have yet to see it, but after reading your amazing blog I sure do feel I need to make a special trip, if not for me then for my 3 children. To capture amazing child hood memories as you have done with our family. These are beautiful, cold yet such a warm tone to the images. You are one amazing children’s photographer.ReplyCancel
