Here we are approaching the end of May. How did we get almost half way through 2012 in a blink of an eye? Life moves so fast, especially if you are like me and chasing young children, working full time at a job, and trying to pursue interests and passions. Photography is my passion. It has been something that I’ve always been interested in, but only in the last couple of years did I really give it more time to study and learn. At times I took it to the extreme, and as a result there were months were my children would cry if I pulled my camera out to take a picture. I am learning that balance in my life and in my passions is essential. So, truth be told, I’ve picked up my digital camera only a few time in the last couple of months to captures those moments that I can’t live without, or shoot projects like this one that I really really value. I’ve let go of photography projects that stressed me out, and now enjoy shooting more film, just for me, just because. I am feeling more balanced.
I started this post with commenting on how fast life moves. My ‘Me and Mine’ post is precious to me because it captures a moment of quiet with my two loves. Snuggled. Still. These photos remind me that these moments are fleeting. I want to be IN these moments because, for the next moment comes quickly and while it is full of laughter and giggles and tickles, that quiet moment when things are still, and not moving at break-neck speeds those are true treasures.
I share this project with several other fantastic photographers that have made it a goal or a gift to themselves to get just one frame of them with their lovies. Please visit my friend Jules Trandem | San Diego Family Photographer to see her Just Us project this month!
