A day at the Park
You probably think since I'm a photographer I have TONS of wonderful, glamorous photos of my children. I do have tons, but wonderful and glamorous would not be the words I would use to describe most of them. Many are on my iphone since lugging my big "nice" camera around isn't always practical. And it is like PULLING teeth to get a posed shot out of them which I'm sure that has to do with the fact that I've been telling them "No, stop that silly face, stand here, look at mommy, look at mommy"....since they were born :) Anyway today I decided to bring my camera to a short park visit, just in case I could get them to cooperate. Well, It was a GOOD thing because I would like to mark this day on the calendar!! My beautiful (WILD) daughter for the first time EVER stopped what she was doing on her own, posed, smiled a real smile (without coaching), and said take a picture of this! I nearly fell off the bench I was sitting on and almost missed the shot because I was in shock! She continued to smile real smiles and pose, asking me to capture each one! WOW!!! You may need to know her to really appreciate this moment as much as I do but HOLY COW, if you do know her you are surely in as much awe as I am :) Don't get me wrong..she is kind, wonderful, motherly and shares better than any kid I have EVER met, she is just one of those children that has soooo much energy/craziness it is bursting from her 80% of the time through funny faces, sounds, and strange (kid) humor. I'm going to challenge myself to start taking "nice" photos of my children more often so I don't look back and say wow I gave great photos to my clients but totally missed the boat with my own. Soooo... I'd love you guys to keep me accountable. I will post them on here when I take them and if you haven't see my kids for awhile feel free to call me out <3
