It was a completely ordinary day, actually kind of forgettable. But that is what made it perfect. How many mornings have we made breakfast for our kids? How many times have we greeted them when they get off the bus after school? How many hours have we spent watching tv on the sofa? I don't know the exact figures, but I'm sure it's a lot. I thought about all of this and decided that it would be fun to photograph a regular day at home with my kids. We didn't clean up first, we didn't put on adorable coordinating outfits and we didn't even make the beds. We just went about our day, me with my camera and the kids with all their stuff.
I think this is a wonderful thing to do from time to time. We all have so many memories of special events captured in our photos. But what about our regular days? They'd be nice to remember too:) It only takes the mindfulness to stick your camera in your pocket and the extra moment to pull it out and take the photo. You can do it, even with your camera phone! You'll be so happy that you did.
