Joleen and I have taken a lot of photos during our years together. We bought ourselves a Pentax camera for Christmas in 1993, which was actually three weeks before we were married. In October 2005, we finally bought our first digital camera, another Pentax. We upgraded that camera with a Canon Powershot S5 IS in September 2007 in preparation for our (first) trip to Korea. Since then, we’ve taken a lot more photos!
According to the iPhoto applications on our Macs, we took (only) about 600 photos from October 2005 to February 2008, when we went to Korea to get Ethan. Since then, we’ve taken somewhere around 5,000 photos — an average of 4+ per day for almost 3 years.
Of course, those photos often come in big chunks. We may go days without taking any photos, and sometimes, we have to be intentional about getting out the camera.
Ironically, before Ethan, there are very few photos on the blog. When we received Ethan’s referral photos from Korea, we really wrestled with whether or not to post a photo of the 3.5 month old baby boy. In the end, we decided to post one of the six photos we received. Since then, we’ve loosened up quite a bit (there are nearly 900 photos on the blog)! 🙂
