If you’re already a mom you have seen first hand how quickly time goes by. The phrase “it’ll happen so fast” has never held such meaning. Photos are the one thing besides our own memories that can preserve our little ones and families as they once were.

once your kids are grown,

I totally understand this.

your photos are all you have left.

time moves slowly, but passes quickly.
