Me and my girls. This was a rather impromptu photo taken in my backyard.
Putting myself in the picture can sometimes be hard - for a number of reasons. As a Mum, there is always an excuse not to be in the photo. I've heard it so often from other Mums as well. "I'll have my photo taken when I've had my hair done" or a common one is "when I loose weight" or "I'm not looking fit at the moment". Stop with the excuses - book in that photo shoot and get in the photo with your kids. When your children look at that photo many years later, they will cherish it and be glad you are there in that photo with them. They won't notice the extra weight, or the hair, or the outfit. Exist in photos! I'm guilty of it - I prefer to be behind the camera, not in front of it. But every now and then, I jump in and just do it. How could I deny my children photos with their Mother?
