one of my goals for the new year is to save up to buy a better camera so I can take beautiful shots of my children. I also want to take a photography class, so I can learn how to take "real" pictures, with good lighting and such.
When I look at the pictures some of the women I admire on Flickr take, I feel somewhat envious and very dumb because my pictures don't even come CLOSE to being beautiful like theirs.
But my children are beautiful, so I love each picture I take of them, even if they aren't perfect or don't have great lighting or aren't framed perfectly. To me, they are beatuiful because of who THEY are.
And they? Are perfect.
I wish I was better at this, but, the truth is, I have no idea what I'm doing and I use a simple "point and shoot." But, I try. And I hope I at least do a good job of capturing "Moments" in their lives and emotions that they feel. That's what is really important to me.
