Why I Snap {Feat Debs from Super Busy Mum}

This week's Why I Snap blogger is Debs from Super Busy Mum.
I starting blogging back in March 2013 & what started out as a back seat hobby, has pretty much taken over my life. Everything has to be snapped up or blogged about! I blog about everything from parenting {Mama Bear of five!}, DIY tips, recipes, Arts & Crafts, and the occasional review and/or giveaway. I am the girlfriend of my darling man, Sean and when we are not on parental duty, we love to watch movies and play a few online games together.

Why do you like photography?

I hate to miss anything. I love to capture little moments that can be frozen in time...forever. It's a big part of my life, mostly due to being a Mum. I'm afraid of missing a smile, a laugh or those first magical milestones.

What do you like taking photos of?

Everything that interests me. Forests, trees, Clouds, I love clouds. Skies, insects...old buildings and most of all, my children. My children will one day be grown up, and one day having children of their own. I'd love to have a massive archive of memories for them and their children to look back on fondly.

Do you have a particular style?

I'm unsure if I do. I just try and snap up an image according to the books I've read. I'll click my dslr into manual, line the image up to the rule of thirds and hold my button down halfway until I feel is the right moment to click. Nothing more.

When did you first get into photography?

When my daughter Ellie was born back in 2005. My in-laws gave me my first fuji-film digital camera, with a little 1in by 2in viewing screen. I loved it! I was never without it. And I was constantly snapping images of my new daughter to email to family.

What kind of photos do you like looking at?

I love looking at photos of landscapes, old buildings, fun family photos. I love them all. Each photo taken, whether good or bad, fuzzy, blurry or a little wonky...they all have a story to tell and that's what makes them precious.

What are three of your favourite photos you have ever taken?

I have an archive of 10,000+ images on my PC. It was an extremely hard process to pick just three of my favourite!
1: This photo is of my youngest son, Jacob. In this photo he is 6mths and looks rather unsure what Mummy is pointing at him. I adore his little hand clasp and facial expressions. Its one of my many favourite photos of my son.
2: This is a photo of my daughter, Ellie. This photo shows her character so truthfully, as she's quite bonkers truth be told. She loves to act out and knows she's funny, so in turn making the house burst into fits of giggles. She's a true entertainer.
3: This photo if of my fifth and youngest sprout. Miss Belle. And here she is staring at her most favourite thing at the moment. Her feet. I bet as she peers down at them she is thinking how tasty they'd be for her to chomp on! They are forever in her mouth! But more so, is her fluffy head. Its so crazy & fluffy that it's sort of her trademark!
