Capturing Motherhood with Truprint

One of the things that has surprised me most about motherhood is how fast it goes. I feel like I blink and the girls have changed and we are reaching milestones before I even realise it. I look at the girl's little faces, their smiles and the sparkle in their eyes and wish so very often that I had a pause button, that I could freeze the moment to enjoy that little bit longer. Photos are the nearest thing I'll ever get to a pause button and I know that one day I'll treasure the pictures I take even more than I do now.

I love looking back over our photo collection so far, it tells our very own unique story and makes me smile from ear to ear each time I come across an old picture I'd forgotten about. One of the things I remember from my childhood is a chest of drawers on my parents' landing filled with photo albums, and packets and packets of loose printed photos. We loved rummaging through them and still do.

In our very digital world it's all too easy to forget to print photos, to house them on your computer or phone or 'cloud'. The digital world also means there are so many easy and wonderful ways to print and enjoy your memories from photo books, to canvasses to gallery walls and they also make really personal and thoughtful gifts. Truprint have a fantastic range of products to choose from which are perfect for special occasions. I've recently printed some 4 x 4 photos of the girls to add to our gallery wall and am so pleased with how they turned out. I also created a beautiful canvas for Oli for Valentines day and it was so easy to do using the Truprint App. Seeing the photos I've printed around my home allows me to enjoy them every single day and also reminds me that my babies will not be little for ever so to drink every bit of them in.

Capturing little moments of motherhood that I want to remember forever has become rather addictive. I love documenting the girl's childhood's and hope that one day they will love rummaging through all the photos I've taken. Some of them are perfectly ordinary moments, others serve to record special moments like first smiles, first steps and first snowfall and then there are the birthdays, Christmas's, holidays and often without realising it the 'last times'. Because I am the photographer the moments have been captured through my eyes, not only capturing the girls in them but my experience of motherhood too making them all the more special to me. There are also the moments captured by the girls who seem to have inherited my love for freezing moments in time with photography!
