I'm making this my new motto

While watching the season finale of Psych the other day, a line was said that just blew me away.

Don't take pictures of buildings. Take pictures of moments.


This was a moment from this past weekend. A moment of pure happiness, where all my girlfriends were around me talking and I just soaked it in - how wonderful they all were and I remember thinking how much I love them. That was a moment worth capturing.

Do you take pictures of moments?

I LOVE THIS!

First, beautiful picture. I can totally tell how happy you are!

My favourite picture of the 1,000 or so we took in Europe is one of us on our Greece cruise. The thing is, it's not the best scenery behind us, just white and a little sliver of the ocean, but I remember being SO HAPPY and IN LOVE when that picture was taken. And I just love it. So much more then the ones of the Eiffel Tower or the Colesseum :-)

Such a beautiful picture! I love the random selfies I have of Jase and I together - it's all about the moments!

You look so incredibly happy! I love it and that quote is amazing. I love taking pictures of moments. I can look back through my pictures, see people smiling or mid-laugh and instantly recall the moment and feelings that are behind the snapshot.

Beautiful! I definitely try to take pictures of moments too, I'm too in love with photojournalist style photography not to :)

I would say that I tend to pictures of random moments/feelings more so than the place I was in! I'm also a big fan of candids because that's where the moments really come through, you know?

So glad you had a happy weekend with your gals. You look so great in that photo; so happy =) Just like it should be!

That's a great photo! I def feel like I take pictures of 'moments', esp when taking pictures of my nephews. My fave photos are when I catch them in action instead of posed photograpy!

That's such a stunning photo of you. Just the incredible joy and happiness that is on your face. I love it!

Here's a quote for you--as I think you live it so well! "The pursuit of happiness is the source of all unhappiness."
You love the everyday moments and while you look to the future, you're so content and happy with where you are!
I love this quote and makes me remember to just enjoy right now and what's happening!

Someone once told me that if you're going to take pictures of buildings, landscapes, etc., take the picture with you IN FRONT OF THE BUILDING. Otherwise you'll look back on the picture and not have any clue what was happening. I've taken that advice ever since.

Love that picture of you!!!

I have such a hard time remembering to do that. Whenever I go on vacation, I focus on taking pictures on the things. But when I get home, my favorite pictures are always those with people in them. Now I just need to remember to start taking pictures of my daily life.
