The way I see it...

I absolutely love candid, everyday photography of children.  Something happens in that instant when a child is captured "on film".   

Maybe it's because I'm sentimental...
Maybe it's because I'm an artist...
Maybe it's because I idealize things...
I don't know.

But when I look at those frozen moments, it makes me see things clearly.  When it's my children, I suddenly am able to see those moments for what they really are.


Those images allow me to realize what I'm sometimes not capable of realizing in the actual moment...
when I'm distracted by the noise, the chaos, the busyness of my day...

I see how blessed I am.
I see how perfect they are.
And I am thankful... overwhelmingly thankful.
