This occurrence, and Session Spark, is something I already cherish today. I may not feel the same if I weren’t a photographer. The best part of this photography journey is that it’s enabled me to recognize wonderful moments otherwise viewed as mundane. Something to cling onto, embrace, and be fully present for. I imagine a session of a photographer tagging along with us on one of these days. They would see our singing in the truck on 10 mile drive to the little town. They would see Kendall and Levi high-fiving from their carseats in the back seat. They’d see us cruising through McDonald’s drive through ordering my cheeseburgers (no onions!), fries to share, and a happy meal.
We’d park in our usual spot and put the blanket down under the same trees we always do. It’s very routine, you see. I think that’s the part of it that makes it so special. It’s worth capturing. Luckily, I bring my own camera on this journey, but of course the photos I take would be better if I were in them. The point is, why not document these little bits of fun in our lives to look back at?
