Don't miss the moments...

I literally have to write into my calendar "take kid's portraits and order personal prints" as part of my to-do list. Remember that old saying "The doctor's kids are always sick, the shoemaker's kids are barefoot..." (botched, but you get where I'm headed) Yeah, well, the photographer's kids have no pictures. Simply put, I stink at not only taking pictures of my kiddos, but getting them printed. In a digital world, which I wholeheartedly embrace on a business level to transfer and share data, it is so easy to rely on posting to Facebook, CDs and galleries to carry the weight of our memories and I am constantly snapping pics with my junky Blackberry and posting to Facebook with a "I'll do this later with the Mama Blevo." Or with a "I'll back this up on my server later." Riiiiiight.

My point. The digital world is amazing. It has provided a limitless resource to share memories and special moments on a global scale among family and friends. Simply put, it's changed the entire way we see the world. We're moving at light speed and it's fun!

Make sure you use this digital world to your advantage. Specifically, don't get lazy. Like me. Take those pictures. Back up those pictures. Print those pictures. Store them away for generations to come. Don't let the moments fly by. Capture them! And then cherish them by taking care to make sure they are saved properly. Because there is no second chance.

Here are some of those pictures I know I'll look back on in years to come and thank God I took them (and yes, I just ordered prints today).
