vacation naps & rambles.

the reasons i don't take very many pictures with my "big camera" are super lame.  you see, i take my camera out & before i know it i've shot two or three hundred pictures of parker & elliot in my living room & then what do you do?  spend two to three hours going through them?  aint nobody got time for that.  or if we're out & about actually doing something photo-worthy, who wants to lug five or six pounds of camera around in one's purse among diapers, wipes, snacks & the such as only to realize you're never actually taking your camera out because you end up carrying a child ninety percent of the time anyway.  

i told you, the reasons are lame.

and in the end, they are excuses.  i need to take more pictures.  i need to rediscover the love affair i have with my camera & find a way to shoot the everyday.  i have a passion for photography.  a special moment immortalized forever in my camera literally makes my heart beat a little faster.  

like this one.

after a day of playing in 95* heat with his cousins, parker crashed.  on an air mattress in a spare bedroom, with sam by his side watching over him.  these moments are coming & going & my boys are getting so big & i'm spending all this time running around like a chicken with its head cut off.  how do you make that stop?  if someone could sell me the secret to making time freeze i would pay a pretty penny.  

but for now, staring at these moments frozen in time will have to do.  


  1. You took the excuses right out of my mouth. I never take pictures with my big camera anymore. Ever. I didn't even take it with me on our trip to Idaho. Ugh. So bad. I need to do better as well..

  2. I have the same exact excuses about why I dont take out my DLSR. I mean with an iPhone, I feel like I cant just have it all. Obviously the DSLR provides better pictures, was a bigger investment, and is for real photography but I cant bring myself to do it:(

    Your picture is adorable!

  3. You sound like me! haha!
    I always forget to take my big camera out and i snap a million pictures before we even leave. So i totally feel you there!

  8. I stopped blogging for a while and then sort of just got lost and I too found excuses not to take pictures. It was ridiculous. I wasn't sure if I was just making excuses or had lost interest in everything in general. Recently I started all over again and found the excitement in taking pictures.

    I'm going to give myself some rules when I got out and take pictures. I think I want to follow those rules that way I can stay inspired. Hopefully you find the interest in snapping some photos again!


  9. Happy to see your fun updates again!
