Joyous. Frustrating. Sweet. Hilarious. Fun. Demanding. Wonderful.
Parenthood is a mixed bag. You never know what you will get each morning when you open your eyes.
Sometimes you have to just sit back, enjoy the crazy mess it is, and just go with it.
There will always be a kitchen to clean, a floor to mop, laundry to fold.
And when you’re done with all that, you’ll probably have to start all over.
So stop and remember all the silliness of the moment.
Like when your 3-year-old thinks hiding forks in the huge bottle of bubbles is a great afternoon activity.
It really was funny. And our forks are sparkly clean.
My tip this week…Play with subject placement. Normally the rule of thirds is the the rule of thumb in photography, but I think centering can work well on certain photos, especially those with simple elements like this bottle of bubbles. I wanted the eye to be drawn to the center of the photo, like a bullseye. If you’re not sure how you want to place the subject of your photo move it around, move yourself around, experiment with different angles and vantage points. And have fun!
