This Moment

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.





I never get everyone together for a shot..and I did not get EVERYONE together here either...but Priscilla is in the picture...with a clean face and a smile.  This is a moment to remember
....Thursday morning, little kids running around outside, breeze blowing, great light, mama grabs her camera.  Molly comes rushing outside to announce she was done with school..everyone smiles.  I tell everyone.."Stand together and smile!" 
THEY DO!!
This is my moment!!

  1. Look at all those sweet smiley kids! I know the difficulty of the clean face shot. It seems we have few of my youngest as well. :) Happy weekend, Lisa!

  3. I love that! It is such a challenge to get them to stand together for a photo - great work! Have a blessed weekend.

  4. Gorgeous photos! I have four so I know how difficult it can be to get the crew all together at once and smiling. I've got a few pictures of my four I treasure because they all are looking like themselves - maybe not all smiling, but authentic. I guess many of us have the same idea about posting photos on Fridays...

  12. My oldest daughter (now 5) has earned a reputation of being nearly impossible to get to smile, or even look at the camera.

    Around the time she turned 4 she finally started looking at the camera but was still just making really awkward faces.

    One trick that I picked up somewhere is when taking the picture instead of saying "Say cheese!" or "Smile" or something, putting on a stern face and saying "Now DON'T smile. I don't want to see any happy faces. No smiling allowed."..etc etc. They LOVE it.

    I can't believe the difference in genuine, HUGE smiles I get from the girls.

  18. just stumbled on here from soulemama.
    have to comment on the pink boots. I'm thinking Circo brand, no? At any rate, we just got close to the exact replica handed down to us from a friend today. Way too cute. Nice blog, Thanks for sharing!
