If you are a mom, you may not even realize that you are taking a ton of photos of milestones and special family moments but not including yourself in these precious memories! Think of all of the times you have sat your child on your lap and read them a story or brushed their hair before bed in front of the mirror. These moments are all a part of your child’s life story and your role in that story should be documented. While professionally-taken photographs are great, please remember to take photographs of you and your children experiencing the beautiful and not so beautiful moments of life.
- Oftentimes new mothers made the decision to photograph their child regularly, to create a scrapbook, or other document showing their beloved child’s growth and contributing to family lore.
- Sadly, these mothers neglect the obvious, which is to place themselves somewhere in that historical diorama, thereby leaving an inaccurate and less than beguiling version of events.
- To get a truly realistic photo story of a family, all the members should be incorporated, most certainly “mom,” as her impact is apt to be huge.
“I want to document every special moment of my children’s lives, which means I ? and most mothers ? am often the one behind the camera.”
