enjoying the moment

easter 2012

I tried to write a post last night but organizing my thoughts into something that would be interesting to read seemed too difficult a task after an incredibly fun three day weekend. Celebrating a decade of life of my firstborn and a God who is ALIVE left me with a full heart and tired body last night.

 I didn't take many photos of our Easter fun. In fact, I took three. A rained out day meant we hid eggs inside for the kids to find. That's not exactly the picturesque scene that a photographer dreams of, but as we left our friends' house last night after 7 hours of sitting around the dining room table just talking, I realized that there's times when the moment shouldn't be captured on camera. It should just be enjoyed. As 6 friends reminisced and laughed, with the occasional child coming in for assistance, the hours quickly passed and we found ourselves needing to pull out the Easter leftovers for dinner.

 Sometimes I feel challenged to pick up my camera but more times than not, I feel challenged to set it down and just enjoy the moment. Hope you enjoyed your Easter moments, too...

    I rarely get photos of time with family, and while I would like to have the pictures, I'm glad I tend to be too involved in the moment to think about photography.

  4. Sounds like a great Easter Jen! I hardly took any photos either. Sometimes it is nice to just enjoy the day and not think about taking photos. You have such a cute group there! :)
