Just us. The Pinks. It doesn't happen enough as my husband is away with work alot. I have decided to join in with one of my favourite bloggers link ups today.
The ordinary moments.
A few days ago, i was sitting in bed alone for the 5th night in a row as my husband was away with work. I decided to read a little back through my blog and i started to wish i had documented more. Documented our bed time. Documented that dog walk where the girls squealed as Rusty shook water all over them after coming out from the lake. Documented that day out at Alton Towers. I have no idea why i didn't but i saw a patten of not including more "family" photographs. I felt quite angry at myself. I do absolutely hate being in front of the camera though and sometimes feel i am annoying my husband and girls by sticking a camera in their face every two seconds. Gilles and i got a whole day to ourselves on thursday and as we had breakfast together, i talked to him about how i want to be in more photographs and to document the ordinary moments and he said he agreed too and so we talked about a family walk in the evening sun after dinner that day. We have many family walks but this time, i wanted to take the camera and allow Gilles to take pictures. He was amazing. He was getting crouching down in the cows parsley and took some lovely photographs and then Elle asked to take some pictures of me and Gilles. They are my most favourite pictures of us ever! She amazes and inspires me every day.
I sometimes feel that i don't share enough of the everyday on my blog. I am not going out of my way to only show only the best days and moments but i do find it hard to share just normal, everyday photographs. I think sometimes it is that fear of being judged or the fear of thinking that people don't actually want to see those posts but my favourite posts on other peoples blogs are the every day normal posts. I am excited to share more of us as a family on my little blog and share more photographs of me and the girls and my husband.
I think i need to stop worrying about what i look like and hiding behind the camera. Both Gilles and Elle have proved that they are great photographers and i cannot wait to see what memories we create and capture together over the summer and many years to come. I want to have albums and albums of all of our adventures and capture everything that i can!
