Kind Words


“Every phase and stage of life as a family of five seems hard, but then something shifts and our family dynamic changes once again. Right now, between school, work, play dates, parties, sports, after school activities, and the daily to-dos, every day seems to be a race against the clock. I often feel anxiety creeping in because it’s impossible to get it all done. Most days I feel like I’m just going through the motions.

Our weeknight visit with Anna-Liisa Family Photography put it all into perspective. Her photographs document my family on a typical Thursday evening. Although there is always someone fighting, crying, or ignoring my directions, there is also a lot of laughter and love. She truly has captured the things that make this phase of life one to be cherished.” - Michelle
