Capturing Our Lives

June 25, 2010

Journaling Reads:
I take photos every single day. Some days I take hundreds and other days only a few. But I make a point to take them no matter what. I have photos for every single day of both my kids’ first years. I have photos for every day of 2008, 2009 and 2010 (so far). I love taking photos.

The best part of the photos is how much of our daily life it captures. The toys my kids play with. The clothes they wear. The expressions. The simple things that make our life what it is right now. I love being able to look back and see how our lives have changes. How my kids have grown. I love seeing all the things we did. All the places we visited. All the days we lived.

Some people say that when you take a photo, you’re missing living the moment itself. Not true for me. Capturing it makes me be in the moment so much more. It helps make it more vivid. It etches it into my memory permanently. For me, it’s like creating a visual diary.

Like most things, it takes practice to do it daily, but it so very worth it. These photos are my most cherished belongings.
