I have always loved to take photographs. I can’t help it. I carry my little digital camera in my purse and it goes everywhere with me. I’ve had too many experiences that I wish I would’ve had a camera for, I learned my lesson when my son was very young.
My children’s lives are well documented in photographs. So well in fact that they both either huff and puff because I’m taking “another picture” or they say, “Mom, take a picture of me holding….” whatever they have in their hands at the time…
When my kids were younger I went through a Black & White phase. It was before I went digital and I would haul my big camera around with me. That big Camera went along with us on all of our outings, it was just as necessary as the diaper bag was.
I took the following photos about 6 years ago. I am not and have never claimed to be a professional photographer…but it does not deter me from pretending to be with my children. Looking back at these photos, even if they’re a little blurry…I’m so glad I lugged that camera around with us.
