Mommy & Me

I have been very inspired lately by all the posts about Moms getting in the shot.  I have to say that I struggle with this often.  I'm always the first one to bust out the camera to take a picture of my family & friends but I'm one of the last ones to want to get into one.  I always have excuses...."my hair's a mess", "I have no makeup on" or "I need to lose a couple more pounds".  Well, I've committed to making an effort, once a month, to get into the photo!  When I'm old and grey, I want my children to have images to remember all the good times we spent together.  It's all I have of my own mother, who passed away back in June.  These images are the most important to me because it shows our life together as a Mother & Daughter.  I want my children to have the same memories of their Mom. 

Now, don't get me wrong, this first session was a photo session with my daughter and I made sure to fix my hair, dress nicely and put on my makeup.  It won't always be like this...all nice and put together.  But I assure you, I will get in at least one photo with my children (& husband) once a month!  I encourage you to do the same!

Love this! Like you, I take pictures of everyone else but I am in few. I need to make an effort to include myself in pictures more often also!
