Everyday Moments

I’m (yet again) working on what seems like a limitless amount of stuff.  I got projects out the wazoo.  My 365 is taking up a lot of time – I’m not just trying to get a shot every day, but I’m really working hard to develop a few skills.  And there are days that are harder than others.  So, in the spirit of true “every day” moments, I thought I would also get on my “Snapshot Advocate” soapbox. 

If I’m being genuine I tell you that our every day moments aren’t perfectly composed in-camera.  They have flaws.  As much as I’d like for each picture to be, well, perfect, that’s not always going to happen:  And that’s okay – there are going to be those moments that the photos, while not my best technically, are going to be some of the ones I treasure most.  They’ll have have cluttered backgrounds, and dirty faces, and mismatched clothing; they will also be the ones we have the most stories about, the ones that bring back the most memories, and they will have a dad of two girls who has enough humility and love to let them give him a royal spa treatment.  By compromising perfection we’ve all gained a little.  This is what Everyday Moments do (and should) look like for me.

    What I love MOST about this, is the moment. They most likely won't remember this exact moment, but because you have these pictures, it's captured forever. <3 YOU are preserving these days. I love it.
