The Tradition Continues...

One of the things I love about my oldest kids getting older is the experience of seeing them develop their own interests, loves, hobbies and fascinations.

And the way they see the world.

1 of 8 has grown up with me being an unapologetic shutter bug. She has experienced first hand my various stints in advertising, as voice-over artist and portrait photographer.

And I love seeing how those experiences have shaped her.

She is already much more the photographer than me. It is such a delight to see how she sees the world through a view finder.

Last week, the meteorologists in our area did a climatological strip tease for us and indicated that we might, just might, have a chance of snow.

The kids sat outside Friday morning for hours, searching the heavens for any indications of frozen precip.

They were sadly disappointed.

But 1 of 8 took advantage of the gorgeous overcast lighting and got these shots of the twins.

And her captured vision of them, runny noses and all, delights this mama's heart.

It delights me to see the uniqueness of her eye. It delights me to see what she sees. It delights me to see that she is far better than I am, seeing the color and the composition in ways that I don't.

What a delight.
