A few of my more faithful readers, especially those related to my children, have pointed out it has actually been a while since I posted photos of said children. To them I say thank you for reading, and then I say YOU TRY and capture them with a camera. I’m a little tired of chasing them just to get a blurry foot, or a photo of Henry in a headlock.
Exhibit A: BLURRY FOOT
Exhibit B: HENRY IN HEADLOCK
It actually has been a while since I’ve really taken photos with any gusto. It’s February, it’s cold and dark out and I’m trying to keep up with a very busy midwinter agenda of eating, reading and wearing fleece. I’m awash in too many unorganized images already, and inspiration is at a low these days.
But Amily and Tyler’s triplets are arriving soon and I get to shoot their birth anouncement, plus Maggie’s baby too, so I have the good fortune to shoot some newborns in the coming weeks, along with some photo dates with baby Lily and her big sister Martha, and maybe Mike’s kids Aidan and Erin.
I’m excited to try the old using-your-garage-with-the-door-open-as-a-natural-light-studio trick if my ever-patient husband and photo assistant will comply, along with my two fleet-footed offspring.
And Valentine’s Day is next week, so I might (!) even be inspired to wrestle H & W into red and improve on last year’s pig pile of a photo.
