Mmmm… the good stuff! Messy messy s’mores!! (Aren’t those freckles the cutest?!) Even though the lighting wasn’t the best, I went for the shot. And I love it!
A few weeks ago we decided to break in the backyard fireplace and make some gooey S’mores. The kids absolutely loved them! Who doesn’t love a throw back to your childhood, am I right? I took the opportunity to snap a few pictures with my “real” camera since I all too often just pull my iPhone out of my pocket and use that. (I blame Instagram!)
I want to make sure that I remember to capture these little moments. The details of these day to day activities WILL eventually go away. My kids will grow up. The cute little dimples are their knuckles will someday get wrinkles. Comforting the bad dreams in the middle of the night will turn to them rolling over and falling back to sleep on their own.
Because of this, my New Year’s Resolution was to pull out the big guns and try to take more pictures of my sweet family; no matter the background; no matter the light.
The melted marshmallow is the best in this picture of my middle child! And, yes, it ended up in her hair!
In this image I chose to focus on my son’s hands. I want to remember the little details… not so much the shade of the marshmallow.
While it’s not the focus of this image, I adore my baby’s hand in this image! It’s so HER! Messy
I love to take a few steps back and enjoy the entire picture of what’s happening rather than the up close image. I have to remind myself to do this!!
