On Motherhood :: Photographing Your Kids Lives
So about a year ago i joined Clickin Moms and i have loved it! It is intriguing to me that so many moms are into photography but it makes so much sense. It is wonderful to see the world through the eyes of children... it's awe inspiring, innocent, adventurous. And as a mom i have 3 little models around me all the time! I just have to look for opportunity to capture what they are already doing, or love. Deuteronomy 4:9 says, "Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them." This was written to the Israelites that God had brought out of slavery. He indeed had done AMAZING things for them. And he commanded them do not forget. He instructed them to teach their children... and their children's children! It is a beautiful thing to me that God cares about making memories, and remembering His goodness for the sake of His name! I also believe that God wants us to remind our children of His goodness to us. And photography is one way we can do that.
I'm so glad that in this day of age we have the gift of digital photography to capture the lives of our kids! We started making family albums the year we got married and i'm so thankful we have these moments of our life journey captured. I really want to be a better photographer, for myself and for our kids.
A photographer friend told me about Clickin Moms last year and it was exactly what i needed to be inspired to learn and grow and go deeper in my photography journey. They have online forums where you can share photos, ask questions, read tutorials and get some really great advice. The also offer online classes where you can learn how to Master Manual mode in your camera, work with Natural Light, and so many more! I've only taken one so far, but am looking forward to taking more. I've made some great friends and found some really great photographers that inspire me to be creative, artistic and to master the art of photography!
