Photographs of our twin daughters, once a week, every week, this 2014.
We were at a 4-day family reunion during the last week of the past year, and it was a perfect culmination to the awesomeness that 2014 was. It was also a time of rest, slowing down, and reconnecting with relatives from literally all over the world who we haven’t seen for so long. Both my husband and I came from big, wacky, closely-knit, Jesus-lovin’, God-fearing families, and we praise God that we get to raise Dawn & Rain in the same values that both of our families uphold.
These photographs were all taken through my phone camera, because as always we didn’t have enough hands to carry a bulky DSLR around. Just the same, I’m happy with these blurry, grainy, imperfect remembrances of those perfect moments. Definitely for keeps.
So.. this project has been good for me.
I only wanted to preserve memories for Dawn and Rain, but in the process, this project gained me more than just a pile of photographs. I discovered that taking photographs of them has become an instant pick-me-upper, especially when bedtime routines are dragging on way too long, or we’re having a rough week.
The truth is, I started the project thinking I was doing something that Dawn & Rain would appreciate in the future, only to realize that I did it for myself, too. (more…)
