Several times a year, I do what I call "Daily Life" photos of my kids. These are simply photos that capture the age, moments and interests of each child that year. Our children grow so fast, and the uniqueness of each age can fade in our minds. It is that reason that spurs me on every year to take the time to document, with photographs, the little things that one day will become foggy. We may remember they loved trains, but do we recall the joy or intensity in which they created their own little world? We may recall how much our child loved dressing in fairy tale costumes, but do we remember with clarity the abandon he/she had as they acted out the part? That is why I encourage you to photograph these moments! You don't need fabulous photography skills. You just need a camera and let it capture what you see. I love this particular photo series of my boys. They weren't really reading the words on the pages, but instead made up numerous stories themselves to fit the pictures. The laughter and giggles that ensued was contagious! I hope these images inspire you to take your own "Daily Life" photos!
I would love to hear about what "Daily Life" moments you were inspired to photograph!
