I must admit I’m not quite fond of taking photos.
My hair’s usually in a mess and sometimes I don’t smile properly. It doesn’t help that I’m vain, and the little imperfections that show up on screen get to me.
I suspect that this entire blog has less than 10 photos of me. It’s usually the kids, or one of them plus daddy, or both and daddy.
I think that’s pretty appalling.
I’ve been feeling the need to let go of my tight reins on the camera, and to encourage the man to take more pictures of me and the kids.
So at a recent wedding we attended, we managed to pull off some decent shots.
I love photos with lots of greenery and sky in the background. They seem to help make everything more beautiful and natural.
This is just a start. I hope we do more. What’s a blog if you don’t have photos of yourself with your favourite people on earth?
I don’t want the kids wondering next time, why is mummy always missing from our pictures? What’s up with that?
I certainly don’t want them to be missing from my photos in future when I’m old and wrinkly.
Would you take the challenge with me this weekend, and capture more shots of yourself and your family? Hint: Instead of focusing on getting that perfect picture, let’s just enjoy the moment, and let the photographer take care of the rest. 😉
Have a good weekend, friends.
