So many times as a photographer, I get caught up in striving for perfection. I want the perfect light, the perfect expression, the perfect picture. Sometimes I achieve this perfection, but it’s at the sake of capturing the every day, those simple moments that make each day special. To help me remember these important snapshots of real life, I’ve joined a group of fellow photographers in a little blog series called “The Simple Things.” Each month we will shoot one of those simple moments in our lives that we have been neglecting with our cameras. At the bottom of this post you will find a link to the next photographer’s blog. Click through all of them until you complete the circle!
This month was super fun in our house especially for our oldest! Audrey lost her very first tooth AND started her first season of t-ball! Since daddy is helping coach her team, I thought I’d better document her first game! It was so.much.fun and the girls looked like they’d been playing together for years! We were seriously impressed!
Her team isn’t all that big, but two of the girls weren’t there when we snapped this first picture. I think I’ll have to do real team pictures before the season ends! This is what my other two kids were doing during the game. Drew rolled down the hill and Jocelyn tried hard to get onto the field! Mommy missed her first at bat. Oh, I feel so bad! But here is daddy giving her some advice! During her second at-bat, daddy gave her a great pep talk. She knocked the ball past the pitcher and ran ran ran! And after three innings, the kids learned something else new – that no matter what, you always have to be good sports and congratulate the other team. “good game good game good game good game good game good game good game good game good game….” Be sure to continue through our blog circle.
