Don’t you love those school email reminders that YOU have homework due :
and then I went into a panic. Do I have a decent photo of me and Jack or even a decent photo of myself at all??
I legit had to get my wedding album out for the only decent photo of me and Jack together and the bad mom award goes to me!
Dad should take more photos but so should you
There has been a massive push for dads to take pictures of moms, and while I think it’s great for them to think about taking pictures of mom and baby to help capture the moment you simply cant get. Moments you all want to remember. What if you’re a single mom or Dad’s just busy doing other stuff, like working. Does that mean we can’t have documentation of our motherhood?
As always I got on my high horse and send NOPE again. This isn’t good enough, we want the best for kids and yet we don’t practice what we preach. We tell our kids their beautiful and we love you, you’re important, and guess what you matter too.
It’s ok to feel self conscious and want to hide, I learnt photography for exactly this reason, but it’s still important that you know why.
3 reasons every moms wants to avoid being in the picture but 1 reason why you shouldn’t
We’ve all sat there and and thought “I’m in this photo and I don’t like it” but the reality is that you probably look better now than you will in the next 20 years.
You’re Worth Celebrating
Becoming a mom is hard and if anyone says differently, send them my way. Motherhood doesn’t define who you are but it’ll shape your life and capturing those moments, documenting your journey as a mom helps shine on those precious, treasured moments but there’s more to being a mom than that feeling of being blessed when you watch them sleep.
If you don’t do it for you, do it for them. Your worth it: show them how much you love being with them and what family photos are worth to your kids by being in the picture with them.
One day all our children will have is pictures of you. Make sure you’re in them. No matter what your hair looks like, your makeup or your body. They wont care about any of that, they’ll just want to see you.
This is how you kids see you everyday.
Trust me you’ll loook better than that.

How to find a photographer for a mommy and me photography sessions
Look for someone local, like me, who will come to you, embrace who you are and be able to capture those real moments in real time. Stop wondering about what to wear or how to look good and trust them to guide you, help you, and give you the time with your kids, doing what you both love; That’s worth remembering.
Remember to show yourself the love you show your mother. Mom picture frames are ideal for the mother’s day gift (you’re probably gonna get yourself anyway.

It’s far too easy to forget or get caught up with the kids and forget to take 5 for yourself.
