Gratitude Day 16 - Grateful for the Outtakes

Today I'm grateful for the outtakes in the photos I take of families. I just love them. You know the photos where the dad's eyes are closed, the mom has her mouth open because she's about to laugh, the baby is looking at the dog who is licking the baby's face. 

I usually trash those pics because folks generally don't like to see themselves like that. Believe me I'm the same way. BUT, through the eyes of someone else these photos are awesome. It really shows that life is just a big outtake. 

Seriously, how many of us walk around posed and smiling? Life is messy and I think messy photos are great! You just can't photoshop life so why not embrace the big mess that it is:)
