Photographing Moments At Home

Let’s talk about the irony of photographers who don’t take pictures of their own kids. It’s true, I talk to photographers ALL THE TIME who never pull out their camera when they are at home. Maybe because it feels like work, like its just MORE PHOTOS TO EDIT. I don’t know exactly what it is, but I’m guilty. I’m trying to get better about photographing my babies in our house, to forget about the mess and just take the pictures for memory sake.

A couple weeks ago I snapped a handful of day-in-the-life photos as the girls and I were just crafting and playing at home.

The house wasn’t clean
The light wasn’t perfect
We weren’t dressed up or wonderfully coordinated

And gosh, no surprise that it got me in my feels! They say the days are long but the years are short… such a cliche and I’m so annoyed that it’s so true.

Maybe someday soon I’ll do a post with tips for taking photos inside your home. But today isn’t about that. Today is just remembering to look for the sweet moments in the day-to-day.
