Daddy and Elias

by jessicaturner on August 9, 2008

Almost every morning, after I nurse Elias, I put him in bed with Matthew while I go pump and/or shower. Yesterday, I captured this shot. I love it because they are both sleeping and it is an “every day” moment.


I encourage you to leave your camera out so that you can pick it up and capture every day moments. Pictures shouldn’t just be taken on special occasions – because life is made up of many more “ordinary” moments that are part of your story.

Great picture, Jessica!

I really agree with you about carrying the camera with you. We took almost 1500 pictures last month of every day moments. They grow so fast, you want to remember…

Very nice – it helps to have a baby in the house though – at my age – well a pic of me and the dog and the cats is sufficient – now if I were you with a new little one – yuppers – I was clicking my fully creative 35mm – ALL THE TIME! :) Great fun!

Very precious moment! GREAT capture! I couldn’t agree more about capturing everyday life! Your scrap pages are beautiful! Oh to have the energy, creative juiuces flowing, and alone time to scrap book again. I MISS scrappin! Once in a while I visit my scrap room and even got a page done and a few more laid out last week. Enjoy this time now while Elias takes lots of naps and is content just being. My lig girl is 10 months and a busy bee!
