I can only speak for myself, but since becoming a mom when I look at my camera roll on my phone, photos of myself are few and far between. It’s about 75% Adeline being adorable, 23% Adeline and Marcus being sweet together and 2% poor quality selfies of Adeline and me.
The stage she’s in right now is so very precious, and although I do a good job taking snapshots of her, I want to do a better job of capturing us together. I want to be able to show her photos of what I looked like when she was a baby and how much fun we had together.
That’s why we booked a special photo shoot for just me and her! I encourage you moms out there to get in front of the camera for a change. Even if it’s just making a conscious effort to ask your husband/mom/friends to take photos of you and your kiddos, make sure you are documenting that YOU were there too. I promise you’ll thank me!
Pro tip for photoshoots – Bring props! I brought a bouquet of flowers for us to smell and a bottle of nail polish to give Adeline her first “pedicure”. It kept Adeline interested and enabled us to get a few more shots before she was ready to be done!
