JDubbs and I took the kids to the beach earlier this month to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary. We went out to dinner later that night, but during the day we just wanted to be together as a family.
In fact, I wanted to be present in the moment and give my kids all of my attention so I left the camera at home and just did my best with the Iphone. These are undoubtedly snapshots, not portraits, and although they aren’t photographically perfect, the day absolutely was.
And that’s what’s important about that day.
Sometimes being aware of how perfect a day is as it is unfolding is one of the best gifts a parent can receive.
