Memories in pictures

This series on how to make the most out of the time you have with your children is brought to you by Amee at Madame Deals and Sharon at Mom on Dealz.

I have been taking a photography class and it really taught me a lot about pictures and capturing the moment over the perfect picture. I began to think about it isn’t life like that as well. Should we spend a lot of time putting together the perfect event and stressing about all the details or should we try our best learn to love the results. I was pleasantly surprised by a picture that was a mistake. I set up my camera and I was sure we were in the frame. I had us seat “in position”. I checked the light. I moved everything out of the background.I convinced everyone to stay still and smile. Then snap we took the picture. It isn’t what I envisioned but I love it. The kids didn’t listen to my instructions to sit still or look perfect and as a result I got a picture that is real. I now stop and think before I expected or decide to create perfection. It is the imperfections that make us unique and special.
