i only pull my camera out when the kids or little ones are here. and that is not really all i want to document. i thought i was documenting tom and i, but i'm really not. i'm documenting our family definitely, which i'm happy about-but, then there's our every day life, that we live pretty fully for the stage of life we're in; and i'm not capturing that. i have no idea how this could be and i didn't realize it sooner. i'm all about the simple stuff of everyday life and it makes me sad to think that i have overlooked it. i'm sure tom will be happy to know that i will be using the tripod and timer more now : ) so i haven't actually started to do it yet (because it really just hit me this morning) but it's going to happen. and i want to scrapbook it too. i love to do pages about our family and journal about how i feel about them, and funny stuff they say and do...but there's stuff i need to say about me and us too. not that i want to be in all the photos, i just need to photograph our life, which i really haven't been doing.
i'm going to the orthodontist this morning. i think it might freak them out for me to bring my camera...but i just might. and i don't think there is a single photo in existence of me sitting at my computer editing, which is really weird because i spend SO much time here. as i'm thinking out loud and typing, i am thinking about who does this well and i have to say that tara and ali both do this very well. i admire both of them and the stuff they do, so why did that not translate to me personally? so if i hand you my camera or pull out my camera when we're together, just humor me, k? no eye rolling!
lately, i have taken a few pool photos. not a lot. here are a few of my faves-
