There are pictures that all parents seem to have of their children- the kid in the highchair eating spaghetti, the kid trying on Dad's shoes, the kid covered in mud/dirt/sand/icing/whipped cream. There are many, and before I had you, I figured they were just the "obligatory parental pics". Now that I have my very own little munchkin, I see what all the hype is about. When those moments happen to you, with your child, it's as if it's the first time they've ever occurred in the entire Universe. The moment they occur is pure preciousness- and capturing these moments on film is an added delight. Andy Warhol said, "The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do." That is the magic of documenting your childhood in film. For just one second, time stays still, and when I look at those images in the future, I get to travel back to that second and feel it all over again.
Here's one of those moments, baby...
Final Score- Greenbay Packers 31, Pittsburgh Steelers, 25.
