Get in the Frame
As a parent myself, I totally get it. You're always the one taking the photos and you're never in it! For all the hard work that you do...you need to be in the photos too. It's not just for yourself but for your kids too. So that one day, they can look back and see how much you were really there.
Catch fleeting moments
The best time to capture these moments is now. While your children are still young and living under the same roof. Because these moments are fleeting. As years go by, they become fewer and farther in-between. I don't want to miss capturing it before it's gone. And I don't want other parents to miss it either.
Embrace it all
Let's face it. Real life is full of ups and downs and it isn't always that pretty. But when broken down into key moments or details and reviewed in retrospect, it is actually quite "beautiful". Tears of joy, tears of sadness, utter frustration or flat out defeat. These are all part of the natural rhythms of life. And in parenthood...there are many! It's what makes us human and I think it's beautiful when we fully embrace it.
