Unscripted Beauty, what does it mean to you?

“I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for AVEENO. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

Unscripted Beauty

What does that mean to you? Unplanned, natural, not thought out.  Many times it is simply taking the time to not plan something that makes it unique and beautiful.

Maybe you’re flying by the seat of your pants and you just happen to capture that picture perfect moment in a photograph.

Is it a beautiful moment with your family? Is it a particular place that you have been that was spectacular?  These are all things that, for me, have some form of unscripted beauty in them.  AVEENO is encouraging parents to flip the script and just “go with it”, to make the most of everyday, natural, unplanned moments.

When my youngest child, “E” was just old enough to talk, there were a few words that she would say.

Let’s start with NO. Yeah, she learned that one quickly… we will jump over, forget, and ignore that one.

Just after she was old enough to sit up, one of the first phrases that the spoke was “itchy my back daddy”. After her bath I would take her out, put her on her table to dry her off, and she would say, “Itchy my back daddy”.

She wanted.. and I’m not making this up.. 100% truth! Her AVEENO baby.  Specifically it was her AVEENO® Baby Daily Moisture Lotion

When I was asked a few weeks ago to participate in a sponsored campaign with AVEENO, that very moment popped into my head.  There are so many memories and times that I have had with my kids over the last 6 plus years, many that I remember and many that I don’t quite remember.  A recent survey by AVEENO reveals that is the unscripted, unplanned, completely candid moments that are most important to parents.  Many times the best memories are the ones that you don’t plan for.

It is for that very reason I have gotten into the habit of taking LOTS of photos.

Yeah, I’m “THAT GUY”.  The one who has the camera around his neck at all times on vacation, birthday parties, and other family events.

Then again, why not?  You only get to see “IT”, whatever “IT” is, one time.  Why not take a photo so you can look back on it later.

One of my favorite places to find beauty, other than my family, is the great outdoors.  I really enjoy taking lots of landscape photography and lots of photos of the places that I/we’ve been.  I think those are some the best and mostly easily captured, moments of #UnscriptedBeauty for me.
