No matter how much I use my camera for creative expression, the most joy comes from recording my growing children.
My son overcame a serious case of nerves this week for his grade 1 Christmas concert; I was able to capture both the trepidation leading up to his moment at the microphone, the joy he felt using it, and the obvious relief he felt knowing it had gone well.
My daughter, sweet and shy, showed amazing confidence in her first stage performance. I was fortunate to be close enough to be able to record her excitement.
Now those moments, among others, will be frozen in time for us to share and remember.
