Mundane Moments

My desktop is in the shop for a much needed checkup.  I’ve been trying to get some work done on my laptop, which is just about next to impossible because it is slower than slow.  Instead I have been taking a walk down memory lane looking at my old pictures wondering where my baby boy went.  We took his 6th birthday pictures today.  6.  That’s two hands, people.  That’s big. I’m just wondering where this kid went.

This diaper wearing, sweaty, curly haired, red cheeked chubby baby.  He was the same exact age as Kennedy in this picture (and I rarely see a big resemblance between the two, but when they sleep they are twins to me).

As much fun as it is to set up the big shoots and to capture those remarkable moments in your children’s lives, it is the monotonous moments that tug at my heart.  It’s these moments that you see everyday for so long and then all of a sudden you don’t.  And you don’t realize you miss them until you see a picture like this that brings you back to the way they sounded and looked and smelled.

So, keep shooting Mom*togs.  Keep shooting those mundane moments.  Because they are the ones you will be so thankful you have.  Promise.


  1. I’m doing a 365 project and feel like my pictures are kind of boring and mundane but I’m so glad I’m capturing those moments because years from now they will be my favorites. Thanks for sharing exactly what I’ve been feeling.
