So Im that girl. You know.. the one that never posts her personal pictures… the pictures that get buried with all the work images. Yep that is me 🙁
I really try hard but somehow it just happens. These pictures were from this month………………….LAST YEAR! How insane is that! I was looking for some old files for a client & what do you know! Im so ashamed. My sweet family never sees the stuff I take, my sister who basically relies on me to document her sons life… well here you go.. Auntie Mandy is just a tad late 🙂
My grandparents live in a teeny tiny town in Kentucky. My poppaw is like 83 I think… he had never seen a shark… so Melody decides we all needed to go to Gatlinburg for a weekend, awesome! The problem, the same poppaw really doesn’t like to leave home.. like he loves getting out around his town but not leaving town. I laughed at my sweet kind sissy when she suggested this. I thought there was NOOO way he was going to fall for this. Well… as usual she proved me wrong! He came and actually had a great time! The first night we drug him (almost literally) to the aquarium, the kids were psyched but he honestly was completely ok never seeing a shark. He said he could see them on TV all he wanted 🙂 but you see. I am his most favorite granddaughter (shhsss don’t tell the others) and honestly I can get him to do just about anything if I smile really sweet and just harass the living daylights out of him 🙂 So he caved and he went. I think he kinda had fun but he was ready to go at the end 🙂
It was a great lil weekend, these images are poor in quality (some are from my phone, some just a lil cheap camera) but honestly who cares. I took them, I will print them for everyone and at least we can look back and remember. YOU know there is a little lesson in there , right. … TAKE LOTS OF PICTURES!!!
As a photographer you can easily get caught up in the fact that every image needs to be perfect and just as a mom you get tired of lugging around a camera… do it anyway!!
So we are going back in a few weeks….. I will try to not take a whole year this time in posting them
