Recording Life

The Shoemaker’s kids go without shoes… do our kids go without photos?

Not really. I take TONS of pictures. I just don’t ever DO anything with them. One realization I had recently is that the most important to me is recording life.

That is an entire blog post of it’s own.

But i do find that i’m constantly playing catch up on the blog, so for the first time in a vary long time, i’m posting TODAY of photos that i took TODAY. And to make it easier for myself later, i already made it into an album spread, so all i have to do is print it when i’m ready to make a full album. I am so excited for this method. We’ll see if it lasts.

So here’s today’s spread. I’ll probably make it into an 8×8 album.
(You should be able to see the spread larger by clicking on it)

I had so much fun, and it was super easy. I think i’ll convince Dustin to let me teach a photoshop class or two in the summer… if you’re in Oklahoma and interested, let me know.

And tell me, friends, what do YOU do to record your life?

More about Amber

Born in Denver, CO and raised in Upstate New York, I have traveled the world and now happily live near Mullica Hill, NJ in South Jersey with my 3 boys and baby girl on 4 acres of woods. I've enjoyed shooting since 2001, officially becoming a business in 2006. Although photography brings me much joy, I try to find ways to craft and create in other mediums too!

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

    I do the same thing! I take tons of photos of my daughter (videos, too). Every year we make a calendar of her previous year and hand them out as gifts to the family. It’s great!

    Lately I blog…but before that I was good at writing in my journal at least every week (I’d take it to church…). I love this layout of corbin!
