    That's so great! What an awesome thing for your kids to have, even if you don't think it was all that much. A little something is way better. I hope to set up some good habits now while my son is 2 and I am waiting to build our family.

    I don't know how you keep up with your project life and week in the life projects, in addition to all the other projects. I admire all the project lifers!

    Note: These tips are ideas for how to actually be present in the moments you are documenting .

    TIP #1 | Be Aware

    Simply acknowledge that you want to be more present in the moment even when you are documenting it is the first step. This simple bit of self-knowledge will lead you to making better decisions in the moment. For me, living in the moment and documenting my life experiences are two very important pieces of my life.

    I love to record every day life too - I just wish others in my social circle understood and were as passionate about it too!

    How do you go about documenting while living in the moment? Do you journal at the end of the day? Do you write little notes in a notebook you carry around?

    TIP #2 | Participant & Observer

    During all moments of our lives we have choices. When you are in the process of documenting something with your camera it's possible to be a participant or an observer of the situation (and you can switch back and forth between the two). I find that making a conscious choice, such as right now I'll be a participant and now I'll be an observer, can make a major difference in how you approach the story.

    Sometimes I like to just be behind my camera and observe.

    Other times I want to really be participating in the moment and putting my camera down is a better choice.

    Basically it's giving yourself clear permission to be one or the other at any given time.

    I find I'm handing over my camera a fair bit now, more than before, for someone to include me in the activities as well.

    "How do you go about documenting while living in the moment? Do you journal at the end of the day? Do you write little notes in a notebook you carry around?"

    I do both. Sometimes I write down little notes - such as the little notecards I use for Project Life. Sometimes I wait until the end of the day. Most of the time I try to write it down immediately otherwise it tends to get away from me by the end of the day.

    Sometimes I email reminders/stories to myself if I'm out and about.

    I gave myself the freedom to put down my camera this year and just enjoy watching my kids - play sports or whaever- without the pressure of always being behind a lens.

    It's so important to remember to relax and enjoy life while also documenting it!

    I usually jot notes down in my daily calendar either during the day or at the end of the day. Usually works best during the day because it's amazing what you can forget in just a short time!

    Notecards sound like a good plan...then I can just add them where I need them.

    I started to do that, esp on Christmas Day. I put my camera down and participate more in the day. I used to do the other way around and always felt like I missed out on so much, as I was more interested in the photos.

    Me too, Carol. I have very FEW photos of me with my girls as babies... So sad about that. It's like I wasn't even there! Except I was always on the other side of the camera.

    I need to take pics of my girls doing everyday things - not posing.
