VIII) Still in the midst of learning and improving

"Life with children isn’t simple. I should know better as a hands-on father of 3. It is fun, busy, happy, frustrating at times and a zillion other things. But I believe no matter what, there is still something beautiful, something worth remembering amidst the hustle and bustle. If we don’t stop and look, it will be gone in a blink of an eye, right along with my children’s love for pretend play. Taking pictures of the children's major milestones is important and I love even more photographing the tiny details that my children are made up of. I want to remember the scenes where they played shadows in the dark room, scored a winning goal, their squinted eyes when they laughed, etc. I know as parents, we value these memories.

Some of the moments worth capturing :

-First days of school
- Football, basketball or any sports practice
- Pretend play
- On the training wheels
- Cuddling favourite toy
- Authentic interaction between siblings, friends
- Spontaneous play with pet
- Birthday parties
- Any other things that the child loves or struggle with.
Remember it is about capturing and reliving those memories that
will make our hearts go Aawwww when we look back at their childhood.
Please visit my galleries. If you like what you see - spontaneous unposed pictures that capture the essence of what your family actually feels like, leave me a message ;-).
