Usually, when you’re behind the camera and the viewfinder fogs up, it’s quite bothersome – but these days, it’s something that I’ve grown to love. I used to always wear my glasses during sessions because I don’t like how contacts feel in my eyes…but I was starting to get tired of fogging them up. Why you ask? Well, I’m a serious baby. A total cry baby. I cry watching movies, I cry when I look at my son, I cry when I think about my family…and yes, I cry during photo sessions. Embarrassing. But, I’m usually able to hide it quite well. My glasses used to get foggy and wet with tears when every once in a while, I watch a family interact in a way that makes it completely clear how in love they are…and the emotions just fly at me like diced onions – causing me to start bawling. Anyhow, even though I no longer have glasses to get foggy, my viewfinder has now fallen victim. I actually love it, because it means I’ve captured a very special moment for the family, which is worth way more than my viewfinder (or mascara). With this sweet family, I definitely had foggy viewfinder moments. As much as I want to post them, I’ll save those photos for later :) but for now, check out how gorgeous they are…how energetic they are…and how in love they are with being a family…being together.
