I realize I hardly ever take photos of the kids, or the family anymore. I still have Carly's birthday photos in an organized envelope on my desk. I need to buy an album for her still. All of my personal stuff kind of put on hold. I have her next birthday at the end of August! I hope to have that all squared away by then. Time flies by, and I have other stuff to do all of the time.
So, I have decided that I will be buying a point and shoot camera to take on family outings and vacations. Easy, no pressure. Just family memories. I need to make more of those. I was thinking of the importance of photos. Dane Sanders only has one photo of him and his Dad. His Dad died when he was a wee little guy. Click on his link that says "two by two" to view his story on video. His Dad wasn't into photography, as a result no memories.
Cliff, he has two SMALL albums of photos that I put together for him. I fortunately have a whole bunch! I was the first born. I feel fortunate to have those, and all of the memories my Mom and Dad saved for me along the way.
Anyways, I have decided I need to enjoy my family time, and just shoot snapshots just for fun. Nothing creative, just fun snaps of the family and our life together as eight.
So, if you don't take any photos...maybe you need to take a few! Your kids and family will thank you. Sometimes it is not about getting the most technically perfect photo. I have to remember this daily!
Now, I need to find a photog. to take our yearly family photo. The last time we had a professional photo Courtney was just sitting up, and had no hair. My how all of us have changed since then. Life has changed since then!
Professional photogs? Who would like to shoot our family session? Any takers?
