capturing our life, and capturing it in a beautiful way is so important to me.
let's face it though. WHen it comes to our precious kids, we would love any picture if it holds onto a memory. Even before I learned how to use my camera, I loved looking at my pictures with bad focus and crummy lighting.
as our life has changed a lot, I find myself wanting to surround myself with visual memories. hanging on my walls, sitting on tables in frames, held in an album on a shelf. so when i take a picture, i want it to embody that memory as closely as possible.
have you ever taken a photo of a beautiful moment or scenery, only to feel like the picture didn't do it justice?
learning to use my camera has allowed me to manipulate settings and create a reminder of a memory that fits with the feelings associated with it. beautiful. timeless. provoking emotion. and it allows my walls and albums to be filled with this beautiful thing i call life.
