We are all chasing moments…moments we want to remember forever. And often times, as a professional photographer, you sometimes forget to chase your own moments. I’ve joined a fabulous group of ladies, who are all professional photographers, moms and friends to do a monthly blog circle chasing and capturing our own moments.
Last night, I decided to capture bedtime. Our routine is vitamins, brush teeth, climb in bed and goodnights. Hannah is typically in bed ready to read until lights out. Leah tends to wait until bedtime to ask all of the important questions. They usually start with “When can we ever…?”
Hannah often reads before bed. Right now she is working her way thru “The Puppy Place” series about a family that fosters all kinds of puppies. Her other favorite thing to do is to flip thru her school yearbook. I am pretty sure she has it completely memorized.
Leah loves looking thru her library books before bed. She also loves reading Dora and a set called Cool Cats. She can also “read” Knuffle Bunny from memory. Last night she decided to block my attempts to take a photo or two. Then I thought I would win by getting her face in the mirror but alas she got me on that one two. Finally I promised two more clicks and I would put it down. I finally got a bit of cooperation and her Leah smile. And yes, photographing in her super pink room drives me batty. It makes me want to turn everything black and white but then how ill we really remember the pinkness of it all?
Now head on over to my friend Jessica Hamlin’s blog to see her “Chasing Moments” post this month. I love every shot she took!
