I was on a podcast recently discussing all things memory keeping, and during the course of the conversation, I mentioned my three favorite photos and the common thread among them all.


My husband and his dad in a candid moment on Father’s Day.


A simple expression of affection between my sons on Christmas morning.


My mom and me smiling at each other affectionately.

Anytime I’m browsing through my photos, either in my physical albums or digitally, certain types of pictures always cause me to pause and reflect. And, what do you know? Almost always, they are candid shots that capture a sweet, emotional, or funny¬†moment between two or more people.

Here’s the thing, though. I don’t have nearly enough of these types of pictures in my vast collection. I’m, at best, a mediocre photographer. I’ve definitely improved since I started scrapbooking, but even now I find myself with far too many photos of rooms full of people, taken from a distance, with few or none of them looking at the camera. Or multiple shots of distant landscapes with no people and no context.

To say the least, I’m a little frustrated by my lack of photography skills. I really want to be able to capture more of the moments I enjoy scrapbooking, so I’ve decided to do something about it.

I recently came across this free resource, “Free Guide to Photo Composition” by Katie Evans,¬†and I’m excited to read through it and put all the information into immediate practice. My goal is to share my progress here on Sundays, and I hope you’ll check in, cheer me on, and even join in.
