Five moments worth capturing (other than the usual)

I doubt you'd be surprised to read I believe capturing moments experienced in life is super valuable. That includes the usual like: engagement, the wedding day, anniversaries, big birthdays, pregnancy, babies, etc.

But I think sometimes we over glamorize those moments, or more so under value others.

I want to share FIVE moments I think are worth capturing. But it isn't just about having images of these moments. It is about giving value. Some moments are particular to a certain season in life, some are once in a life time and some are a regular part of our everyday. Whatever the case, these aren't just moments, rather pieces of life. And I think preserving them with timeless images is a way to assign value, bring presence and create memories.

There are so many, but here are 5 I think are worth assigning value:
  1. Your new home | Whether it is a college dorm, a new apartment, buying your first home setting up your RV for the road; these new moments are so unique.
  2. Bringing home a new pet | Picking up a puppy from the liter, rescuing for the local shelter or picking one out from the pet store. Bringing home this new family member is so special.
  3. Saturday morning at home | These are often the slow mornings for sleeping in, coffee making, brunch and more. Whatever the routine, these small but valuable moments matter. 
  4. Vacation | Of course vacations are often filled with photos, but are you in them? Are you able to be present on your vacation? Are the in-between moments captured? 
  5. Date Night | What is your favorite thing to do together? Maybe it is your favorite activity, a local cafe, a front yard picnic or a night in. These are cherished moments and the above angle Instagram shot might not be the best way to preserve them. 

There are so many more. What are your favorite moments worth capturing?
