This is often the scene when these two are together. She is expressive, theatrical and always dancing to the beat of her own drum. He observes with a combination of adoration, fascination & confusion.
She goes on and dances like no one is watching.
I made it clear from the start “No pink. No ruffles. I didn’t want a “girly girl”.” My mommy friends knew better. They simply smiled and let life happen. Reality would make itself known. That reality, of course, being that I could never make my child what I wanted her to be. She is her own person, with her own, strong-willed mind. Ultimately, I love what my girl loves. She adores the color pink. She loves a twirly dress. And she loves going through mommy’s make-up drawer.
She’s the adventurous, fearless & yes, tomboyish girl I dreamed about. She just does it in style!
I captured these images one random morning. I was organizing laundry in my closet & she was hanging out at mommy’s sink, getting ready to face tackle the world.
I know it has been awfully quiet around here lately. Life has thrown a lot my way to the point that I felt a little outside of myself. I found myself in a lot of different places but not present in the moment. So I started working on making some changes, focusing on things that aligned with my goals & my family’s goals.
That’s when I decided to step away from my wedding photography business. The choice didn’t come easy as wedding photography has been a constant joy & source of inspiration for me. Ultimately, it took me away from something even more important – my family.
However, that doesn’t mean that’s the end of Maryrose Serac Photography. No way. It’s just a time of evolution. My kids make up so much of who I am and inspire me in so many different ways. The more I captured other people’s stories, the more I wanted to capture my own stories. I started paying more attention to my own every day moments. That’s where the focus of my photography will shift to.
I want to capture the every day lives of my family & your family. From intentional vignettes to candid mornings, I want share the beauty of a life well captured.
I send to you my sincerest & deepest thanks to all of my clients who let me witness & capture their milestones over the years. You allowed me to share in the beauty of your love & your personal stories. I hope that my journey will cross your own once again. If not, know that I will remember you fondly. xoxo – Maryrose
My eyes misted over as I watched the groom get his first glance of his bride walking down the aisle. As she smiled at him, I noticed more tears start to flow, from me and their guests, as their feelings of love enveloped us all. That kind of love is a joy to witness and one to strive for.
