I always have such inner turmoil sharing photos with obvious technical flaws. But, let me go on record to say when I’m capturing my boys, I try most of the time, to just capture the moment. Firstly, my boys are photographed often, but their photos usually sit unedited in a folder on my computer. I stumbled across these last night and just loved them.
This first series is of Carter. We were on vacation and he fell asleep on the couch. He never does this. He only sleeps in his room, in his bed, where there’s no light. So sleeping pictures of Carter just don’t usually happen. I’d also just purchased my macro lens and was playing. There are plenty wrong with these photos. Also, Carter has become a lip sucker. If anyone has any suggestions on how to help with that, I’m open to them. He constantly sucks his lip and has chapped his face because of it.
I love how he sleeps with his legs crossed like this. He looks just like Richie does when he falls asleep on the sofa.
Here are some images of Bodie. He has a snotty nose in all of them. If you know Bodie, you know that he’s had more colds than I can count this year. So the runny nose look is one he wears often. Again, these aren’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination. But, this blog is also where I share personal images, so it is what it is. You can also tell that these were a while ago because Bodie has 4 more teeth now. Oops. Bad mommy.
He makes the face below all the time when he’s “working”. This little mouth agape thing as he concentrates.
WHY would I take a photo of him with only one sock on? This is how he is most of the time. In fact, I frequently sing him “Shoeless Joe from Hannibal, MO”.
Yup, snot and chewing on a toy.
Go out today and take photos of your kids that aren’t perfect. But, don’t forget to take photos “just because”. These little moments are the ones you’ll want to remember.
