When I got a new camera at the first of the year one of my hopes was to take better pictures inside our home. Having recently taken my camera off automatic (yes, it took me six months to work up the courage) I’m still learning. Especially when my family is active and I’m trying to capture a moment without them making faces or hiding from me (no one else has that problem, do they?) I have a college age son who doesn’t like his picture taken so I have to be sneaky or find him when he’s engrossed in something else.
My deal of the week was my husband’s purchase of an almost brand new wii. I love the looks on my kids’ faces in the pic below. It’s not a great picture, but it is night time outside, and it’s better than using a flash (yes, it took me six months to give up the flash, too). I love that the word joy is in the background and reflects the fun my kiddos are having playing the wii together.
I have so enjoyed having Joshua home this summer, and apparently so have our cats. I couldn’t resist snapping a picture of our two feline critters. They would never sit on my lap like this. Probably because I never sit still long enough.
