When you’re accustomed to pulling-out your camera for the fun family outings or anticipated projects, sometimes you miss life’s little snaps in-between. Lately, I’ve been working on keeping my camera closer at hand. I’m trying to improve this little hobby (hope to be talent) of mine, which unfortunately for me, takes insane amounts of practice. At times, that can be quite frustrating for my ambitious type A personality. I pray for patience in the process; but want it right now! ha! I see the flaws, imperfections, and the long road ahead — yet that drives and motivates me all the more. Because really, the reason I do all of this — why I’ve spent years documenting, recording, posting recipes, projects, and everything in between, is to truly capture what my family means to me. I want to fully justify their individual beauty cocooned inside these moments that make my heart flutter. In essence, I’m letting you in on a secret: I’m not sure I’ll ever arrive at accomplishing such a lofty goal. But that won’t stop me from constantly trying. And hopefully when they’re grown, I’ll be gratified knowing they’ll stay little (at least, in pictures) forever.
He was the last to wake from a family nap. Bed pillows strewn on the floor taunting him to play. Overcast sky and low afternoon light prompting my heart to record it.
