Welcome to my blog. Finding balance between  photography, family and everything in between. 

Almost Easter...

I know its Friday so I should be posting some photo tip...but Im a little slow on the posting this week so Ill post my almost easter and add a really small tip at the end. Sound fair? :)This weekend will be Lily's 3rd Easter. I know she is only (almost) two...but Lily was born the day before Easter in 2011. I still remember my friends (Sam & Jon) bringing Easter Lilies and Roses to the hospital. Absolutely perfect...and Ill always remember it (and they smelled delicious!) Last year we didnt get to enjoy Easter as much as Lily wasnt walking yet so we didnt hide any eggs. This year...Egg discovery is on! We started practicing today and she loved it. So this weekend we will visit the Sanow Twins and watch them all find eggs. Hopefully they wont fight over them. ha ha. I am excited for Lily to get to enjoy the holiday this year. Today I put together her adorable Easter basket. It was funny as its a holiday tradition that came from my mom. We always had cute Easter baskets of goodies. Or at least that is what I remember. Dan does not remember ever really having one? Or maybe only one? Not sure...he may just have poor memory :)  But for me it was a family tradition and I am happy to pass it on to my daughter. I did not fill it with candy or junk...its stuff that Lily loves or will use...Clothes, glasses, stickers, chalk or yeah...and I might have thrown in some toothpaste and a new toothbrush. Practical. LOL. She will still love it I am sure.  Here is a quick pic of the basket...

 

The chalk was too big to fit so it will just hang out under the basket. Ill take more pics when she gets it on Sunday. Which brings me to my small photo tip for today. Dont forget the details! When you are photographing events or even your kids be sure to not forget to shoot the small stuff. Such as the basket or what is in it. Or even your child holding an egg in their small little hand. Sometimes those small details can really describe the moment so much more than a cheesy look at the camera smiling shot. Capture the moments. Dont create them. Ill see if I can do this when I photograph Lily's 3rd Easter.
