How many of you have said, “If only I had a photographer I could stick in my back pocket“?
So many times I’ve wished a pro photographer would follow our family around to catch all the memorable family adventures – the ones that often end up blurry and out of focus for those of us that are less than “pro”.
I’m not exactly calling myself a total amateur – I do shoot in manual and use multiple lenses. Nonetheless, it takes certain flashes and specialty lenses to capture quality action images like sports and the fair. Not to mention the fact that mommy dearest is rarely in these so-called adventurous pics – I’m busy snapping them!
Speaking of the fair, we went last Tuesday night. I didn’t bring a camera other than the iPhone. Last year, I brought the SLR and it took hours to sort through the blur and out of focus messes, finding a mere few images worth editing into shape.
Not this year! I took a few images on the instagram and most of them were a complete beyond recognition.
With the handy wrist bands we were able to ride endlessly. Since the swings are one of our favs, we frequent them. On one of the swing escapades I saw a flash! I looked down to see our photographer friends taking pics. Two days later an e-mail landed in my inbox title Fair photos.
I may not have a personal photographer but at least I could pretend for a minute, and the best part? Mommy made it in the picture! Thanks Chris Moncus Photography for being spontaneous!

Oh neat I didn’t know you blogged these! I’m so glad you liked them. I’m pretty sure you and Shannon were having much more fun that the kids though. 🙂
