I have 3 lovely kids: Cosimo, Emma and Luca. Each one of them has brought a big wind of change in my life.
Cosimo, our first, made me a mother. With him I realized what it means to love someone more then yourself, putting someone before yourself in everything, worrying for someone else all the time also when they are fine! Cosimo has made me a new person and has made me realize how fulfilling it is to share your life with a little person and help them learn how to be in this world. He brought motherhood, parenthood.
Then came Emma, her birth was connected to our move to the USA, to our complete change of life. She probably suffered a little form this change and to this day I feel bad that we put her through this change at such a young age but I think that it is also what made her the tough cookie she is today. She brought change, renewal, belief that there is something different that we have to do in our lives.
Last but not least came Luca. Sometimes we feel that he brought changes that are still in the making…..personally what I realized in my business after having him, was that I need to seek and show real life. Through my photography I need to show how things really are and not how we make them look for a good photo. I feel that there are more changes on the way but they are not well defined yet. He completed our family, he brought togetherness and he makes us feel like there is no limit to the changes your can welcome in your lives.
That said I’m going to start applying these changes to my way of doing things in 2017. Starting by this blog, which is going to be about traveling with kids, seeing places near and far with them and not as a lone traveller anymore, since I haven’t been one for a while now. I hope this will be helpful to anyone who feels a little overwhelmed when trying to plan to go somewhere with their kids, it can be so challenging but also incredibly fulfilling for you, your kids and your family as a whole. I have been sharing bits and pieces of our latest trips on my Facebook but I think it is limiting, so I’m going to transfer all my posts and photos to this space and use it instead. I hope you enjoy seeing and reading about some of our stories……..
I will also add a new type of session to my photography packages, but this I will save for another day!
