I got an e-mail from one of the moms in my mom’s mops group (make sense? my mom is the older mother mentor for the mops group at church…) who wanted some summertime pictures of her children.  I was excited, falls right into my plan of taking more people pictures, so off to the park we went.  The mom told me I would be her hero if I could get a decent picture with all 3 of them looking at the camera, and out of the 400 pictures I took, picture number 8 was this:


Not to bad, right?  The rest of them went something like this:

Not a lot of looking at me going on! 

Someday I am going to look at my photography and see professional quality (maybe…).  But for today, I am happy that I definitely see progress.  Progress is good!

Of course, there are always my favorite pictures, the ones less posed and more kids being kids…

It was a fun summer day!  Or morning, we got done at 10am and it was already 90 degrees out!


Part of you capture


  1. I'm with you....I love the ones of the kids just being kids the most! Lovely shots!

  2. I love the second picture - peronally, it would be the one I hung. But they are wonderful. And you are the hero :). BTW, let's just call the mentor mom the grandmother of the group. I like that sound so much better than "older" mother. :)
