connection / by Carey

(oops!  I somehow managed to miss one!  Added at the bottom now)

A new friend inspired me to get myself behind the camera and try to capture the connection between myself and my kids.  I've often wondered... will they believe I was even present for their childhood???  There are hardly ANY photos of ME with them!  So I enlisted the assistance of my trusty tripod and camera remote.  

Nathan LOVED doing this.  He asked for days afterward to do it more.  I only wish I had been able to successfully capture more.  It's a lot harder to get a good photo when you aren't behind the camera to take it!!!   At least I'll have some blurry proof that I was there!  It was such a wonderful creative experiment that benefitted me in many ways.

These are far from perfect.  I'm barely in the frame for most of them!  But they are priceless to me.  I am so very, very grateful for this idea and that I tried.
