One of my plans for 2013 is to take more snapshots of my own family. I was so busy in 2012 capturing other family’s moments that I often didn’t feel like picking up the camera in my own house. We did a lot of family shots, because that was a goal I had for 2012---but what I treasure most are the candid everyday shots.
Originally this blog was called In the Common Hours, because that is what I really want to be capturing of my family. There is nothing “common” about the early hours in a newborn’s life though, so now the name is about making it easy for clients to find via Google. Still, I miss the reminder in that title.
Participating in Rebecca Cooper’s Simple Things Sunday is one way to encourage myself to take more candid shots. Rebecca is an amazing photographer & blogger & momma. Her Simple Things Sunday is a weekly link party capturing a simple moment. I hope to participate at least two Sundays every month. Let me know if you are too!
SIMPLE THINGS SUNDAY, WEEK 1 2013
This is the kind of shot I could easily talk myself out of taking (through the window with some glare, the challenge of a white dog on white snow or that the moment would be over before I got my camera). And I’m so grateful to have it---Duke and Aidan playing in the yard, as they did for hours over break despite the unusually cold temps here in Moab. Aidan thought it hilarious that Duke wanted to pull him on the sled.
Who knew our Labrador could be a sled dog?
