I’m keeping it real. I almost failed today.
I almost failed and didn’t really care. I didn’t want to get up and take a photo just to take a photo. That is something that I have been aware of since starting.
To take a photo JUST to take a photo and share it seems to miss the point of this project. I think it is good to use it to share my day or my thoughts or something I like/dislike. I don’t know exactly how to put this in words, but just a photo to fill a spot seems wrong.
Do you agree?
So, I was laying in bed in the dark. I had my phone, but there is little to photograph in my room in the dark. And I had previously talked about using on my camera….yeah, that has not gone as well, but I figure using it the majority of the time is something to celebrate.
So, I have my phone. No ideas about what to take a photo of and the thought of failing seemed much better than getting up and snapping a random photo. Then this guy rolls over and snuggles into my arm….his “baby.” I knew there was no way I would be getting up now.
But how cute is that moment, right? This cutie is growing up so fast and I want to remember how it felt to be loved by this boy as a 4 year old. I want to be able to show him how cute he was and how much he was loved.
I took a photo with snapchat and shared it. And then I took a photo to keep too.
The photo is below. Do you think he will remember how good it felt to be cuddled together?
This is what I love about photos. They truly are a way to remember your emotions. This frozen moment of time will be with me forever. This is why I do this series.
