I thought it might be fun for today’s post…..to pull up a picture from this very month. Different year.
Confession: I am one of those moms who almost always has a camera with me. Even when dropping this little girl off at school. It was snowing and I just happened to catch her looking back at me. It’s love.
There is one thing I have learned about taking pictures. Never give up. If your kids are like mine, they will almost never look at you and smile and give you the cutest picture ever. You have to work for it. Keep clicking. And clicking. And clicking. Because when you push your camera card into your laptop, you might just be surprised. I’ve taken some of my best pictures in places you would least expect.
Like the time Emily was standing in the bathtub fully clothed. I wrote a post called “a bathtub photoshoot” back in August 2009. I thought it was hysterical that Emily wanted to just stand in the tub like that….so I snapped a few pictures and I ended up changing one of the pictures to black and white and framed it.
I would have never gotten this picture if I gave up. Now go have some fun taking pictures. Anywhere. Everywhere. It’s your life and your memories. Have fun capture them.
