Mine on Monday {Kalamazoo Child Photographer}

A day in their lives. It is so important to capture the little things…the memories, the moments, the expressions. The first time I did a project like this was just about a year ago while living in NYC. On June 15th, after breakfast the girls were lying on the floor looking at the blurb book that I had made from that day in NY. They were enjoying it so much that I decided it was time for a new “Day in the Life” project. So I grabbed my camera (and not my iphone one!) and documented the day.

Our day included:
-looking thru the blurb book from last year’s project
-Justin Bieber on the Today show
-walking in Daddy’s shoes to the playset so their feet/flip flops didn’t get wet
-nap/rest time (also capturing the week the decided to sleep upside down in their beds)
-slip n slide fun
-singing with the ipod
-handstands and dancing
-overall silliness in the grass
-movie watching on the floor to kill time until the fireflies came out
-catching and releasing fireflies (Thank you super high ISO)

I swear they really did eat lunch at some point – not sure where my camera was then.

Beyond the activities captured, as their mom, I see even more…I can almost hear their laughs and giggles. I see Leah’s “I am not awake yet” face. I see how they can play with a bucket of water every day for an hour. I see their lovies. I notice their character sheets, their fake tattoos and bumps and scrapes. I see why we have to do so much laundry. I see our real life.

I challenge you to keep your camera out all day. Take photos of YOUR real life. Watch it in slideshow format. A movie of your day. Then go one step further and get it printed in a book.

There are no rules. Photos do not need to be technically perfect. Life is not perfect.
