Psst – Mother’s Day is coming up in exactly three weeks. Here’s the thing about mom’s (I know, because I am a mom) – we are rarely in front of the camera. It’s like the entire childhood of the humans we raise is documented (by us) so we are never in the documentation – there are so few pictures of us in our children’s lives because we’re always behind the camera!
This is where we’re comfortable.
But – our kids are going to want pictures of us (I know this, because I have a mom). They are going to want pictures of us now – when we are in the trenches of parenthood and aren’t feeling our photographic best (perhaps). They won’t care. They’ll look back and won’t see the flaws you and I see in ourselves – they’ll see the love.
So love your mother and make a photo shoot happen – so she’s not responsible for documenting and she’s compelled to be captured with her family. Family shoots are fun, relaxed, and will capture the essence of your family.
