Hands up if you’re always the one taking the photo’s? You have a million photos of your kids, your partner with your kids, the dog and your kids, your best friend and your kids…. But where are the photos of you? Time and time again us mums are so busy capturing all the special moments we forget to include ourselves in them.
Not only are our children only little once, but we too are only young once. I love looking back at pictures with my mum in them, but there are so few! I don’t care if she didn’t have her hair done, I don’t care if she thinks she was too fat back then, I just love seeing her when she was young and loving us with all her heart. So get yourselves back in front of the camera, hand the camera over to someone, anyone, and put yourself into the memory too.
I’m always talking selfies of me and kids (don’t tell anyone I use a selfie stick), but when I want to capture the extra special moments I always call upon a professional. I have been very fortunately to meet a fellow mum whose passion it is to capture your special memories. Kristy Ressel of www.kristyresselphotography.com.au recently captured our little family and I am so in love with all the pictures. Thankfully Kristy is also organising printing the images for me because I always forget to do that too!
