My friend, and fellow photographer, Mera asked this question on her blog. Why do you pick up your camera? I'll have to admit lately I haven't picked up my camera at all. In my pursuit to become a better photographer, at times I feel discouraged. I feel like I'm not progressing as fast as I would like. And life with four kids just gets busy. Nobody likes a stressed out mom, right?

I was looking through some pictures I took and I found this one. Yes, this picture isn't perfect. I wish the mothers face was more in the picture and sharper. But it's the story I love. Look at that sweet, newborn baby looking and smiling at his mommy. You can't see all of the mother's face but you can see the happiness she is feeling. This is why I pick up my camera. I love to capture those little moments that are personal and have meaning. With a picture you'll always have something to hold onto and remember. So my photography journy continues. I wonder what I'll capture tomorrow?
