Happy Third Birthday to My Baby { Child Photographer | Sydney }

I might have started a tradition with my virtual birthday wish to my husband last week.  Today is my son’s third birthday and it only seemed fitting to do the same for him.  Most of the time I feel like my kids should be the age that they are – like I have lived every moment of the three years with my son by my side.  People, myself included, often say “Where did the time go?”  But if I really think about it, I know where it went.  It went to bathing, feeding, rocking, walking, playing, smiling, laughing, crying, worrying, and loving.  It was spent watching tv at 3am with a sleepless newborn, building sandcastles in the sandpit on a Wednesday afternoon, being the first one in line at the aquarium on a rainy day, and waiting for a fever to come down in the middle of the night. Physically and emotionally children demand that you be present – and I am so grateful for my camera that lets me capture our everyday in a way that keeps me grounded in the moment. A friend once said to me that nothing teaches you more about the passing of time than a child.  And I think that is so true.  While I feel as though I have lived so that every day of the last three years can be accounted for – time still passes.  My baby has grown older, developed new skills and gained more independence.  There is nothing I can do but acknowledge the passage of time and hope that I spent it well.

So I wish my darling boy a happy third birthday.  My heart is full of the past three years of daily “doings.” I am incredibly proud of the sensitive, strong, brave and kind person he is becoming.  I can’t wait to see what another year brings.  And with that, here are some of my favourite images from the last year.
