How to Documenting your children's lives

I have to admit. I’ve been lax when it comes to documenting my kids lives. Well… That’s kind of not completely the truth. I have a TON of pictures of Breanna when she was little, but I dropped the ball when it came to Abigail. Honestly, I think most second time parents do this, right?

Lately, I’ve gotten really intentional about taking more pictures of my girls. Most parents document the big moments like; school programs, the first day of school, and so on. For me,  I’ve found the best way is to document the little moments. The ones you might forget like; playing with their friends, doing chores, eating their favorite meals.
  This the day I gave my girls an eye shadow palette I had that I never used, but they thought it was the best day EVER and wanted to play in makeup with their friends.  This is a great “first” experience to document.

My best friend and her husband were having a date night, and went to a concert. Their little one spent the night at our house. These kids will grow up together, so I thought this would be a great night to document.

    Cute post! I love it!

  2. Wonderful! Another great principle is to take beautiful photos like these. Yours are divine!

  3. Beautiful photos!!

  4. I don’t have kids (yet) but I do have nephews who live halfway across the world (sorta? I’m in CA, they’re in NL Canada) and I feel like I miss out on a lot of their firsts. So I try to fly home as often as possible, and I’m lucky enough to stay home on my next visit, for about a month. Going to have a time! Hopefully they won’t mind me taking tons of pictures of them. I mean, they know me – it’s to be expected 😉

  5. Very cute 🙂

  6. Aww, so sweet! I love the pictures with them trying out the eyeshadow palette! <3

    These are such sweet pictures to have! I don’t really have a schedule or anything of capturing moments – I just grab my phone or camera when a moment happens.

  8. What a sweet post!

  9. Definitely agree that the little moments are the ones worth capturing. Love this 🙂

    what great pictures,, I love the eye shadow ones. My mom has a ton of pictures of me, the oldest but much less of my younger sisters, especially the third child.

  21. Alfa Sengupta says:

    These are beautiful pictures! My favorite one has to be the one of them in the bed!

  22. Camesha says:

    Beautiful pictures! I was just telling my mom today that I wished I had cameras posted all over our house for this reason!

  23. great photos of your kids. 🙂 i guess i never experienced it bc i was an only child but my husband jacob has four albums full of his kid photos and his younger brother only has one really thin one.

  24. I only have one so I’ve not got this problem but if I have another I can totally see being too busy to take as many photo as I do now

  25. I’m the oldest of four and my mom has loads of baby pictures of me and then hardly any of my youngest brother. I really hope that I can find a balance for all my kids.
