I am addicted to taking pictures! It doesn’t matter where I am or who I’m with, if I see a moment or scene that interests me, I’m taking the shot. Maybe I’m also addicted to reliving the moments. I really need to get all of the pictures I’ve taken over the years printed and into photo albums. I know I keep saying that.
After Kiah was born, I often heard how quickly the time passes. I was told over and over to savor the moments because she would grow up quickly. Two more kids later and I definitely agree with those wise people.
The time is going much faster than I would like. Sometimes I want time to slow down, other times I want to hit the pause button and leave it there until I’m ready to move on.
Guess I like to think of my camera as the pause button….even if it’s only for a moment.
My favorites are the candid shots.
I think they tell the story better than any straight-on-posed photo can.
Candid shots are raw, and that’s what I love about them.
I try to capture the moment in a way that reflects how they see the world, but I think most of the time the photo reflects how I see them playing, learning, observing, and exploring in the world.
Obviously, I’m no professional, but I do enjoy playing with angles and such.
I can only imagine what I’ll feel 10yrs from now looking back at these photos. I wonder if the kids will remember the bits and pieces of conversation that went on at the time.
