The boys

Taking photos of kids is always great practice, they move around so fast, if I’m busy looking at my settings, I can miss a  moment. I noticed the photos of my nephews where extremely outdated. I love capturing memories.

Photos: Capturing the Everydays

My favorite pictures to take are of my nephews. I love watching them play and interact with each other. They remind me of life’s greatest joy, having each other. When I arrived at my sister’s house I told David I was there to play and visit with him and Jacob (instead of using the babysitting term.) They welcomed me with open arms and allowed me in their world.

Its amazing when I think about the days when my sisters and I use to play together.  Time passes by so fast, if we don’t take the time to stop and notice, soon, the years would have passed by. Good thing for photos and video, they help us remember what we’ll probably forget. They capture the everydays.

What I do for fun

What I do for fun is what I do for work. I am indeed a very fortunate creative girl. What I do for work is what I believe in. Today a friend complimented me on a video I made for church and I responded, “Thank you, I put some heart in to that one.” And that’s what I do with all my work, I put my heart in to it. One day when I leave this earth, my videos will live past me and their message of hope, inspiration, purity and creativity will live on.

Be ready to watch this kid grow up.  David enjoying his childhood with grandma and grandpa.

Playing Outside

Since my nephew has been living with us I’ve been using him as my model. In the photos I take of him it might look like he takes directions great but really I’m chasing him around the yard hoping to capture that one awesome shot.

Childhood is an amazing time in life. Everything is so new and exciting. I ran around my backyard with my nephew today and snapped some photos. For those moments playing with him I had no worries or thoughts about the future. It was pure happiness.

I know when he grows up, he is going to hate these photos of himself in his cute little underwear.

I believe every parents needs to learn how to work an SLR camera.
