It’s been pretty quiet here on the blog front lately. I decided to slow down client work during the summer and hang out with the kids since
OMG I can’t do anything with them all home all day, they are crazy I love them. So much.
I’m aiming to do a blog post of just my kiddos every Monday for the remainder of summer. It’s really been bugging me how few photos I have of my own kids. They say that the cobblers children have no shoes, and it’s true. Mine have been running barefoot for too long, and the snaps I have taken on my old iPhone aren’t cutting it. So I took my camera out of her cozy home and set it somewhere I would see it every day to remind me that the kids will never be 11, 8 and 4 again and I better get on capturing them.
None of these photos were actually taken with that camera. But it is the thought that counts, and my “work” camera is getting some fresh air. These were taken with an underwater point and shoot camera I picked up at Target. I don’t know if it is because I spent so much time submerged in chlorine during my childhood, but I have been dying to photograph my kids underwater for years. And it was as fun as I thought it would be. It was definitely a learning curve and hard to get far back enough for my kids to keep all their limbs, or heads frankly, in each frame. But it was exciting and the kids and I both had a blast playing around. Looking forward to getting all three of my monkeys back out there soon.
We’re still working on looking awake underwater.
(A few people on Facebook asked what camera I used for these … it was cheap and photographed under water better than I thought it would for the price, but I’m actually not going to recommend it just yet, LOL. I picked it up without reading any reviews, and have since discovered that it will most likely be expiring sometime around 3:26pm next Thursday, Friday if he is lucky. I have my eye on another one, so I’ll update when I get my hands on it. )
