I don't always scrap photos of just myself. I am like most Moms that have a tendency to always be behind the camera. Now that my kids are grown I am learning to hand the camera over to them. I often times love the results. Of course some times they get some really "interesting" shots that I wish they hadn't but isn't that what the delete key is for? lol This one Jason took of me on Mother's Day. I think he did a great job. I found a sketch over at Let's Capture These Sketches and paired it up with the beautiful Teresa Collins Everyday Moments line. I can really relate to capturing the everyday. I don't always think to do it but those are the photos I love the most. Those are the ones that tell the stories that I want to tell. If only I had the stories to go with all the photos I have of my Mother's and Grandmother's. Hopefully I am leaving the stories that my children will want to read about someday. Thanks Jason for capturing an everyday moment with your Mom on Mother's Day.
If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware. The tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered around the house, the piles and piles of laundry lying around to be tackled, will disappear all too soon. And, you will, to your surprise, miss them profoundly.
