Generational Sessions. As the owner of MLoueez Photography, my passion is creating memories that last a lifetime through the art of photography. For me, freezing a moment in time and preserving it forever is one of the most valuable gifts I can offer my clients. Life moves fast, and before we know it, our children have grown up, our grandparents have aged, and we’ve all gotten a little bit older. Waiting to capture these precious moments until it’s too late can be truly heartbreaking.
I’ll never forget the first time I photographed a spunky little 4 year old with his great-grandmother. Four generations of family together, smiling, hugging, and bonding over their immense love for one another. A few short months later, the great-grandmother passed away. Those photos became some of the family’s most cherished possessions, a lasting memento of the joy they shared during that time together. It serves as a reminder that life’s moments are fleeting, but the memories we make can live on forever.
As a photographer, my goal is to educate my clients about the importance of documenting our lives through photography. Your children will never be this small again. Your family will never look quite the same. But with a single click of my camera, I can capture your lives as they are today and preserve them for generations to come. Long after we’re gone, these photographs will endure as a visual history of the love, laughter, and connections we made during our time on this earth.
Looking at the photo above, I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have it in my possession. It was no easy task convincing my parents to pose for a picture back then. I remember it was Thanksgiving, and I was the host. I insisted that everyone take a photo, despite the grumbling and eye-rolling. Now, everyone is infinitely grateful to have this memento. This picture captures the essence of our family perfectly. I do wish that my siblings and I were part of this snapshot – a regret I still harbor. But it warms my heart to see my parents and their grandchildren etched forever in this frame. My niece, the little firecracker in yellow, is no longer with us. Not a day passes without her entering my thoughts. I’m so thankful for this memory encapsulated in a photo, a treasure for my parents, my children, and me. This cherished picture is the only one we have, and it reaffirms how important it is to seize the moment and capture our loved ones while we can.
So don’t wait for the perfect moment or the right occasion. Have your family photographs taken today. You will never regret a generational session. Schedule that family session or finally book that holiday card photo shoot you’ve been putting off. Let’s work together to capture and immortalize the fleeting moments of your life before they’re gone. The present will soon be the past, but a photograph can make the memory last.
