I never thought I had an "addictive personality" I dabbled in cigarettes(many many years ago), but found it extremely easy to walk away from them. No problems with drinking or over eating or diet coke.

Turns out I just hadn't found my "drug" yet.

Hi, my name is Shannon. and I am an photo-a-holic.

I take over 6000 photos in a matter of weeks, and that does not include those I take on my phone.

I have an uncontrollable urge to take a picture that over comes me when I see something cute or beautiful. And since I have three adorable kids (if I do say so myself) that is about, oh, every 3 seconds.

I often find myself in odd positions... on the floor, standing on chairs, leaning over furniture.... just to get "that shot".

And it seems that I have this subconscious fear that if I don't get it on film, then it never really happened. That smile, the blue water, swinging at the play ground, my kids playing together... I have to capture it to make it real, or so my photo-crazed brain has trained itself to think.

Oh ya, and I am not a professional photographer. If I was, none of this would be odd or unnatural. No, I am a just an insane momarazzi.

And thanks to Instragram finally making its app available to Android users... well... I have no hope of breaking my addiction any time soon. It could be worse, right?


I am @shannonblaeske if you want to follow my pics. Warning... I post frequently and may take over your page.

I have been researching for an upcoming post that is very dear to my heart. Which, along with photo-a-holic, I could add in there facebook- blogger- reading- researching- advocating-a-holic as well. What happened to my mantra everything in moderation ? But thats for another day. Check back soon for my next post- its much more important then just awesome pictures of my kids.
