So as photographers, we're always hearing how we need to shoot for "us" and what we want, and how we want sometimes- so we don't experience burnout and continue to find ways to be creative and grow with this craft. I do try to do this... and my kids would agree as evidenced by a family game at dinner the other night of "Guess who I am" - where they proceeded to mock me saying "OMG you guys the light is so pretty right now, get outside so I can take some pictures of you!" (HA HA HA... and everyone laughed while I commended them on their VERY accurate portrayal of me)
For the first time, I'm sharing some of those personal images with you all and mainly to push myself to update this blog more and put what I love the most out there for the world to see... these 3 crazy kids.
We ended up doing some pretty fun "Stay-Cation" things with our boys for last week's Spring Break. We've all been so busy with kid's schedules, work schedules, and I ended up dislocating my patella (knee cap) and have been hobbling around- so keeping it easy but also fun was a must for us!
Que- DOWNTOWN DAY!!!! Really, this just means, we walked (ahem- I hobbled) around downtown for about 3 miles people watching, Pokemon Go hunting, playing tag at the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument and ooh-ing and aaahhh-ing over the incredulous amount of choices at Rocketfizz. We capped off our Spring Break time with some family movies, Laser Tag, a super fun hotel stay and of course some swimming at the pool. And really, am I the only parent that when they start talking about these "like, super epic Pokemon" and saying their names, I want to say "Bless you" or something because surely they must be sneezing or having a coughing fit, because I mean, what are those names, even ?!?!
I love getting the kids out to explore their city and get out of the rut of all of our day to day schedules! I really tried to stay out of their way and just capture some of their moments together- with the exception of asking for ONE picture of the 3 of them while at the monument and needless to say by the giggles, I didn't get it!
Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy some of these fun shots of my crew. <3
