Now for a wedding I show the client 700-100 images and take probably 3 times that many. But at the end of the wedding or the family session I would come home and want to send the film back to Don's Photo and would have a few frames left so whatever was happening when I walked in the door I would photograph. I wouldn't pose or plan I would just shoot the moment.
So I now challenge myself to pull my camera out and photography the extraordinary every day moments and their perfect imperfections!
Here are a few from the vault...
In the middle of renos we had stuff everywhere. There was a crazy rain storm outside so the kids entertained themselves climbing and running into the mattress. Then used it to eat Ice Cream, Humpty Dumpty style.
The kids checking out the rain!
Here is an oldie of the kids raiding the cupboard.
So now not only do I take a picture of the food. This was a yummy Greek chicken.
Now I try to take a random shot of the kids around the table. Do you have pictures of your childhood just regular everyday moments? Imagine how the kids will love to look back on the everyday chaos and fun.
This was a makeover she gave herself at the park.
I can't believe he actually let me take his picture!
At our house meals aren't always around the table. Here we are with an "egg in the hole" on the road and $20 from Grandma and Grandpa for his birthday!
So you can tell your daughter when she herself is the mother of a 2 year old how you had to drag her from the the gas station parking lot because she couldn't have a pack of Juicy Fruit Gum.
