I've recently taken up photography as a hobby. My husband bought me a new camera as an early Christmas present last fall, and since then, I've been snapping pictures everywhere. LOTS of pictures. On Easter Sunday alone, I took over 260 pictures. That may not seem like a lot for some folks, but for me, it really is. I've been so immersed in learning this new hobby of mine that I tend to focus more on taking pictures of my family than on actually enjoying my family. These two pictures are among my favorites that I took that day. Something about them just speaks to me.
I'm a little biased, I know. What mother doesn't feel that way about pictures of her kids?
A friend of mine told me that one day, I'd look at that bottom photo and just cry a river. I'm sure I will. I sort of already do. Even with all the teenage drama at my house, I wouldn't trade being their mom for anything in the world.
(I could use a little less drama, but you gotta take the good with the bad, right?)
I had these enlarged and will be framing them soon. More photos to come.
