pictures.









I struggle with deleting pictures. Even pictures that I have multiples of. Pictures that are the exact same thing in a dozen different shots. Now that I have my Nikon digital, I tend to snap away thinking I can just edit each one after-- except I had no idea it would be so hard to discard any of them. Especially when its one of your sweet kids. Is it me or does every mommy struggle with the same problem? Maybe it's just a symptom of being a mommy.

DIAGNOSIS: Happy Photographing Mama
PRESCRIPTION: External Hard Drive

Ohhhh....I suffer terribly from the exact same problem! I thought I was bad with film, but digital has brought about a whole new level of challenge! Some months ago, the quantity of pics I have, brought the hard drive to being near full. My husband thought it would be a real easy project to "go through" and "delete" unnecessary pics from the over 25,000 on the hard drive. As I sat cringing in hearing the words "delete" and "pictures" in the same sentence, I tried my best to comply. I "pulled" him into this monumental project so he could fully grasp my plight. It wasn't too many minutes until the words "external hard drive" were being uttered out of his mouth! Soon after, we were off to Costco to make such a purchase to "preserve" my precious memories!

Now, if you've figured out how to "find" time to edit, crop and perfect all these pics, I'd love to hear about it! Right now, I'm snapping away, thoroughly enjoying the beauty of my five blessings!

Have fun and let's all be thankful for digital!

Congrats on number 8! Perhaps you've answered this, but I wondered what you drive that fits your brood.

I have a bazillion pics on my computer and a few bazillion on Hubby's laptop...I try and edit them as soon as I put them on (using only my computer) but I'd love to start using some "real" photo-shoppy stuff. Like, what's Flickr for...how do all these Momma Bloggers get their Blog Title on their pics...how do you make the background pretty and blurry and the center image perfect??? Sorry...it's my "I wish I had a Hobby" sickness...

Let me know if you find a cure.

*But you do realize, we will probably have grandchildren to take pictures of, before all of our children have flown from our nest, righ?!?! :)
