Get in the Frame
As a parent myself, I get it. It's nearly impossible to capture some moments because you're right in it and the kids need you OR you're always the parent taking the photos so you're barely in them. Once in awhile, you realize this. And that's when your efforts to get in the frame is surrendered to a selfie. Does that resonate? Wouldn't you love to have more images of you and your kids in a real moment? Having a visual record of your presence is important and it's not just for you but for your kids too. Because one day they will look back at them and be grateful to see the proof of your love and how much you were really there in action.
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. There will be so many stories to share with your children as they grow older. But as we know, visual records make memories stronger.
Embrace it all
Let's face it. Life is not perfect so why fabricate it? When the truth is captured and reviewed in retrospect, the unfiltered view of life is full of interesting stories. Tears of joy, tears of sadness, utter frustration or flat out defeat. These are all part of the natural rhythms of life. It's what makes us human and I think it's beautiful when we fully embrace it.
