Pictures say a thousand words right? I recently heard a photographer talk about how she takes pictures of her kids. She doesn’t take pictures when they are posing, she takes them when they are “being themselves.” This gives them a great idea of who they were when they were younger.
I try to write down the funny and interesting things my kids say and do, but I need to be taking more pictures of them when they are
“being themselves.” That doesn’t mean I run for the camera only when they are oh so cute, or when there seems to be a good opportunity. I will try to take more when they are doing what they love to do on a daily basis.
