    I always keep my Digital Ccamera ready to capture precious movements. I don’t want to miss even a single movement and keep it safe for my whole life.

    I just attended the evo conf. 2011 and had fun taking pictures with Me Ra Koh. She has awaken the photographer in me again. We have had some financial problems the last few years and I didn’t pick up my camera for awhile. I didn’t feel like I wanted to remember this time. I have 4 children and life marches on. I am missing some incredible moments. Thank you for an inspiring weekend to awaken the passionate woman inside of me. I am ready to capture our special moments again and live life to its fullest.

    My favorite was capturing my daughter blowing spit bubbles.

  5. Michelle 03/31/2011 at 12:19 am

    I would love this book!! I Love photography but am just a beginner so am always so interested in finding out all I can and fun ways to do it. My favorite moment would have to be my 2 yr old playing peek a boo with my baby. Photos from both directions were priceless.

  6. jami w 03/29/2011 at 9:48 pm

    my favorite was capturing my sons first real smile. oh how I cherish that photo

  7. Carrie 03/29/2011 at 2:55 pm

    My favorite picture moment was my first sons 2 weeks pictures done at home. She took pictures of all the things we always do but from my perspective. So I sat in the rocker and she took a picture over my shoulder so it is what I always saw when rocking my baby.

  8. Emilee Reynolds 03/29/2011 at 2:32 pm

    My favorite photo was my son’s first photo session. A girl came to my hospital room to take photos of my 1 day old son and it was such a sweet moment.

  9. Brooke Riley 03/29/2011 at 11:08 am

    we had a photographer come and do our new born pictures and she got one of my son laying on his belly with his hands holding his head up and his little mouth is all squshed. I would love to learn how to take pictures on my own of my little guy to capture all those great moments to remember.

  10. Theresa Hoff 03/29/2011 at 10:08 am

    Love this giveaway…with 5 kids and 2 on the way, pictures are priceless!

  11. Lindsey W. 03/29/2011 at 7:01 am

    One of my favorite pictures is of Grant holding Maggie when she was old two weeks old. Maggie is only 3 months old now so this book would be perfect for us right now!!!

  12. Sarah Lucas 03/29/2011 at 6:58 am

    I love the big yawn moment. It’s so cute.

  13. gina 03/29/2011 at 12:03 am

    The newborn pictures are my favorite! Thanks for a great giveaway!

  14. Krystal Leaaetoa 03/28/2011 at 11:16 pm

    I love pretty much any picture of our daughter. She’s our first so I’m a little obsessed with taking pictures of her. 🙂 but a favorite recent one is of her trying to eat her toes. Wish I was still that flexible!

  15. Melissa 03/28/2011 at 11:10 pm

    My favorite photo moments are of my son playing outdoors and discovering all the wonders of nature. He loves to find rocks and sticks and stomp around in every puddle. Seeing the excitement on his face when he finds a new rock is priceless! I’m looking forward to checking out ‘your baby in pictures’ for tips on how to improve our photos.

  16. Emlyn 03/28/2011 at 10:44 pm

    So sweet! Love the chubby thigh tips. My little guy just turned one – I need to get those rolls on camera!

  17. Kristee 03/28/2011 at 9:54 pm

    I loved taking pictures of my daughter chasing bubbles and trying to capture the look of pure delight on her face.

  18. Whitney Stephens 03/28/2011 at 9:09 pm

    My favorite photo is when my third baby was 6 days old and we went to get pictures. We got the best pictures ever, and I especially love the one of all three of my kids.

  19. Katie Graig 03/28/2011 at 7:24 pm

    i love babies sitting in the white bathtub!!!

  20. barb 03/28/2011 at 6:11 pm

    I am from the generation 30 years ago that took horrible baby pictures. I do have a few and they were ones I took in black and white while my baby was asleep. I tresure those.

  21. Wendy 03/28/2011 at 5:53 pm

    My favorite pic of my twins are of them eating their one year cake. They each had their own but my daughter wasn’t really eating it so Hubby decided to “smash” it on her belly. She burst into tears.

  22. judy 03/28/2011 at 5:10 pm

    I love the pictures of ears, nose and etc. Such fun. Thank you for the great article!!!!

  23. Stephanie 03/28/2011 at 4:06 pm

    My favorite photo moments are the candid ones. The ones where a baby or child doesn’t know you are taking photos. I feel those moments are the sweetest and most precious!!!

  24. MiQuel McRae 03/28/2011 at 4:01 pm

    My desire to take my own pictures of my children started when a photographer I was using for newborn pictures used lotion to flatten my newborns “arangatane” hair-do. I wish so badly that I hadn’t let her do that because I only have the memory of her crazy hair but not a picture to show her when she grows up. It was unique to her and unique to me but unfortunately the photographer thought she didn’t need to capture that stage of her life. SO, bought my own camera and trying to capture what I want to remember…not someone else.

  25. rani 03/28/2011 at 3:53 pm

    This is a great article!!! My favorite moments are when they are sleeping, holding tight to their animals or blankets! BUt I also love close up shots, as they are so intrigued with this big dark box clicking in front of their face!

  26. Christy 03/28/2011 at 2:54 pm

    My favorite photos are those my children take from their point of view when they whisk away the family digital camera.
    We end up with this collection of their world view – toys, pretend battles, car races and the constant picture of looking up at mom and dad:)

  27. Alison 03/28/2011 at 2:44 pm

    I love catching my kids doing sweet thing when they don’t know I’m looking. Makes for great, natural photos!

  28. dana j 03/28/2011 at 2:20 pm

    I LOVE the pic of my daughter only a day old, in her isolette, showered by the sun coming through the window! I love it!!!

  29. Tia 03/28/2011 at 2:11 pm

    My fav photos are often the candid ones, when my children don’t know I’m taking a picture of them. That’s when I can capture their true smiles.

  30. Kathryn 03/28/2011 at 1:56 pm

    Favorite photo moment was when I captured my newborn and 2yr old lying down face to face looking at each other – so tender, so sweet. So thankful the photo turned out perfect – it’s one to treasure!

  31. Miranda 03/28/2011 at 1:51 pm

    my favorite photo moments are when, the little siblings are asleep, with arms wrapped around each other. So adorable!

  32. Elaine 03/28/2011 at 1:01 pm

    I’m having baby #3 in 4 wks or less and I’d love this!!

  33. Casey 03/28/2011 at 12:43 pm

    My favorite photo moments are when my son and the dog are playing together. Charlie is so small and the dog, Cotton, is so big, it’s ADORABLE.

  34. kayleen burke 03/28/2011 at 12:19 pm

    my favorite moments are when Archer hits a button on one of his toys, music starts and he starts dancing.

  35. Lara 03/27/2011 at 10:21 pm

    I have way too many favorite photo moments. I always have my camera ready to shoot my favorite 2 year old and 6 year old subjects!

  36. Cassandra 03/27/2011 at 6:37 pm

    I love pics of when my kids are laughing and they don’t know I’m looking at them.

  37. Amy G 03/25/2011 at 6:47 pm

    Capturing photo memories…a priceless treasure for me and them!

  38. kara s. 03/23/2011 at 3:02 pm
