The biggest gift I can give my kids is my time. I hope when they are older and have more people in their lives, friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives, kids they will still choose to spend some of their time on me. With me. I hope I can always make them feel like a priority. Even when I’m busy. Even when I’m tired. Even when they may not need me. I hope I can make them both feel equally important. Equally wanted. Equally deserving of my time and attention. Because that’s all any of us really want, right? To feel loved and needed and wanted.
If your kid ever asks to take a picture of you never, ever say no because they just might take one like this. Thank you, Brayden. I love this and you so much.

*** If you hand your big camera over to your kids or even to just someone who might not know how to shoot manual, set it to aperture priority mode. You can set the aperture and your camera will do the rest of the work. I always overexpose it by one stop before handing it over as well since I like to shoot backlit.
