Theme Thursday - Memories

This week's theme is making memories. I tend to do this just about everyday as I am behind the camera capturing what my kids do best, being kids. I shoot them when they are happy and sad, healthy and sick, all seasons of the year and I tend the keep just about every shot of them saved on my computers for years of viewing pleasure. Yes, even the bad ones. I know, I should get rid of the really awful ones, and I do delete the ones that don't have the kids in them (unless that was the intention) but I do peruse thru them at times to look at how my camera has changed through the years, try to figure out which infant was which (I am mostly right) and see how my skills have been improving, at least I think they are. So as I was home with my youngest daughter yesterday as she has just gotten over a bout of Roseola and fighting off the stomach bug (which started with her, worked its way to E and then to Mommy), I thought what better chance to take pictures of her. Because even though she was a fussy butt all day and she wasn't feeling all that well or being cooperative, this is what she was at 9 months old and I wanted to capture it so that years from now I will remember this day that we spent together.

V 9 months
Here's my cranky girl playing with her blocks.

V Basket
She liked the basket a little more.

V Acid
A teeny smile.

Love them Jessica! Again, I have to ask, how did you get the reflection from the basket?

Plexiglass on top of the backdrop gives a good reflection.

Great shots! That first expression is one you will probably see for the rest of your life!

Awesome! I agree, I love the use of the blocks and the reflection on the floor.

I love the picture of her smiling in the laundry basket! Beautiful. Reminds me of W.W. too because he too likes to play in the laundry baskets too. And you're right, I keep all the good and bad pictures too it's hard to delete them because the memories are always there.
