Time flies... faster and faster every year...
Never mind the kids; wait until the grandkids grow up! I left 'my boy" for 6 months travel and when I came home I couldn't find him in the crowd. Then a booming male voice said, "Up here, Grandma," He grew 6 inches in 6 months and never stopped. He could have a job as a telephone pole.

Very nice, Oliver.

Outstanding! I know the thing with taking photos of the kids, my eldest girl is 15 and every photo of her for the past 2 years she’s frowning or running away! Kids!
Great shot!

It's a difficult time, letting them fly the nest and build their own lives, make their own mistakes.
You have a rather better album of photos than most families, to look back at. Wink

An excellent picture, Ollie. You tend to find at that age they will not sit for photos, so they have to be candid images, but they are often better than the posed ones.

If only we could stop or slow down time for even a little while ....especially when they are still at an innocent age ....
unfortunately not part of the deal ..our only child... a daughter is 22 now ...
Wonderful candid Oliver... hope you sneak of a few more before your youngest flies the coop.
best regards walt

Try taking them when they are asleep. I used to sneak up on my son and wake him up and snap, got the shot. Oh Mom!! Teenage daughters are the hardest though. Cell phones are good you just pretend you're texting in bad light. This is a lovely image of your youngest.

So important to have taken as many photos of them as you can as they are our future memories...

ah.. those precious fleeting moments captured in time.
i would agree with comments above where it is stated that you may well have a more than average photo album of your children.
That is an album to treasure for ever.

She's so photogenic, Ollie it's a shame if she can no longer be photographed.
