How many pictures of yourself can you find?
If you're like me, you can probably count them fairly
quickly because there just aren't that many.
Why is that? Well, for me, there are a few reasons.
1. I'm usually the one taking the pictures.
2. I'm the one who uploads them to Snapfish, chooses the shots
I like and order prints. Pictures of me typically don't make the
cut. Dark circles under my eyes is probably number one reason
why, followed by unflattering pose [read:muffin top], unflattering
angle, or that in my mind, It's just not good enough.
However, I have been making a concerted effort to have more photos
taken of myself, not only "Just Me" but also with my hubby and my
kids. Even if that means I have to do the old "hold the camera out as
far as my arm will reach and take my own picture" technique :)
My friend, Emilie, recently set up a challenge on her blog through
flicker. The challenge is to make a greater effort to get in photos with
your kids ~ no matter what you're wearing, how much cover-up you
need, or how much weight you think you need to lose. The point is
that your kids don't notice and will not care in the future about those
things. What they will notice is that you loved them and what better
way to capture that than with a photo?
Here are some of my recent attempts...
