This time of year is so fun for kids and parents (like myself) who love to capture childhood memories. I love to explore and take photos of the world that surrounds me: that’s the best I’ve got to describe my style of photography. I feel like my kids have always been a pain to photograph. They’re always looking away or doing something that you don’t want them to do, but I’ve still managed to pull off some sweet shots.
I feel like I’m growing into my element. As a parent who loves photography taking great photos of my kids should be a given. I especially realized this after putting together a slideshow for my dad’s
memorial Celebration of Life late last year. I saw all of the photos of him as a kid and me growing up. I really want to make sure my kids lives are well documented.
I knew I nailed it with this one. Our annual family trip to chose our Christmas was this past Sunday. The skies were cloudy but the rain had stopped. Great! I for one always love when we do this “family field outing.” Browsing around fields of lush evergreen trees. Plenty of places for kids to have fun (not to mention the tasty lollipops in the shed where we pay). Not knowing what to expect, I threw on my fixed macro lens (which is great for close ups and portraits) since I knew I wanted a few macro shots of water drops or spruce buds. We got there and I starting playing around with my boy, Reed. I told him to go hide and that I’d try to find him. Well, I found him. 🙂
