Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

POTD - Week 20: Catch Lights

It feels like I've been on a roller coaster lately. Life likes to throw a curve ball every once in a while and it seems like I've had a lot of them thown my way lately. Thankfully things have been manageable for the most part, but it would be nice to catch a little light one of these days! I realize that isn't the traditional meaning of "catch lights" in the photography world, but hey, it is what comes to my mind when I think of the phrase! Maybe it is just my warped pregnancy mind, but I'd like to catch a little lightheartedness, a little good luck, a little rainbow. Heck, these days it is nice just to catch a decent photo! :-)
