With the convenience of my iPhone, I kind of stopped being intentional with my photographing. I can snap a photo whenever and with great ease. I am unbelievably grateful for this. But sometimes when things are easy, we forget to make them intentional.
The other day, Ross and I were outside with just Hudson. That never happens and it didn’t last long. While I was watching him explore and the sun glow around him, I thought to myself: now would be a great time to take pictures.
I ran inside and grabbed my big girl camera and just snapped photos of Hudson as he went about doing what a 14 month old does. He looks like a ragamuffin, his onesie is soaked from the water table, our yard is a disaster—but this is our life!
When I uploaded the pictures I was completely taken aback by how much these pictures reflected Hudson and who he is today.
He is my thinker, my tinkerer, and my stinker.
