P is for Pictures

Part of my latest picture project, excuse the lousy cell picture.
I'm slowly filling up wall space in the new house with all of my favorite people.

I love pictures. More specifically, I love pictures of my kids.

I took all my babies to the portrait studio once a month for their first YEAR.
Now most of them have portraits done once a year.
Some of them also have annual sports pictures.

Sometimes they actually get tired of me taking pictures of them.

While portraits are a wonderful annual keepsake of the ages and stages, there's something to be said for candid shots, too.

I have a simple point & shoot camera that I usually carry in my purse.

But Paul got a nice DSLR camera for our trip to China a couple years ago, and I've decided I like playing with it. He's not so crazy about the idea, but he indulges me from time to time.

I'm not a great photographer, but I have fun with it.  I like to capture the fleeting everyday moments of life.  5 years from now, I won't remember the nice bus driver's name, but I'll look at this picture and remember how much he adored Hannah.

I look at this picture and hear my mom singing, "You're gonna miss this....!"
Because I know the next few years are going to go by in a blink.

My manly man out conquering the trees with his chainsaw.

Bri's K teacher really pegged it when she said Brianna was "vibrant."

Hmm, I wonder where Hannah is?

Oh!  She's in the tub!
Can you believe how long her hair is getting?

P is for Pictures, and Pictures are Priceless.
