EVERYDAY PHOTOGRAPHS OF MY FAMILY

My favorite things to photograph are the simple, everyday moments that take place. I know I have talked about this in a previous post here and here. With instagram and an iphone everything is so user friendly for capturing those fleeting moments on the go and sharing them. I do plenty of both.

My goal this year is to try and take so many more photos of all FIVE of us with my Nikon. A few things need to be done to tidy up some hard drive space for the amount that is sure to follow and fix my tripod for family shots. To start, here is a set of adorable shots of my 2 year old doing everyday activities in the "self care" category (Montessori friends!), ie in the bathroom. This is such a funny age to watch, because they really start to show their personalities and take a sense of pride in doing independent activities. They role model older siblings and parents, even down to the facial expressions while brushing their hair and teeth.

As a child I used to love to watch my Dad shave in the bathroom daily. It was a mundane part of his morning ritual, but something I found unique to watch. Do you have a memory like this? Something you remember sharing with a parent or sibling growing up, that was a simple everyday moment?

Speaking of the everyday moments of a two year old, you must watch this most ADORABLE episode of Olive Us, created by Gabrielle of Design Mom featuring HER two year old's day.
