#FeelGoodBlogging Challenge Day 5
Today's Feel Good Blog challenge is to blog about something helpful. I have been super busy most of today with family sessions but this blog has been in the back of my mind since this morning. I've been thinking all day - what can I post that is helpful to my readers?? And what can I write about in a short and sweet post because let's face it, I'm knackered and just want to curl up in front of the TV now.
So its 8:35pm and it has suddenly struck me - I know exactly what I want to discuss:
Make sure you capture your precious moments!
Yes obviously I am going to say this because I want you to get me to photograph your precious moments and capture your story ;) But I have heard too many people tell me lately that they don't have any photos of their family, or they never thought of getting photos when their baby was born, or that they don't have a nice photo of their children on the wall at home.
I know time gets away on us, boy do I know that, but please always make time to capture the moments that make your life complete. You won't regret it. And I don't necessarily mean hiring a photographer - although I know a great one I can recommend ;) - just get out your camera or iPhone and capture the moments AND then get them printed! They're no good sitting on your phone or on the memory card if either of them crap out. Get them printed & enjoy them.
"Life is not a matter of milestones, but of moments."
I've had one of the most hectic, tiring weeks of the year and I know its only going to get progressively busier leading up to Christmas. But we made the time this afternoon to spend a couple of hours just chilling out, no emails, no to do lists, no chores. We went down the river with the dog, some fish n chips and a couple of beers. The weather was stunning this afternoon so we sat in the sun and laughed as the dog bounced around in the chilly water.
Such a simple moment but utterly perfect.
To end the evening I got the camera out and we took a couple of photos.
Yes I take far too many photos, but I don't regret taking any of them.
I love having lots of photos of our precious moments. I look back on them and remember how great that moment was.
