When was the last time you were in photos with your kids?
Mum’s when was the last time you weren’t the one behind your camera or phone taking photos of your kids, family, pets? These are all great memories to capture, but what about you? Where is the memory of you with your kids, family, mother, father, dog ,cat etc…You get my gist?
Don’t let these four reasons stop you from having family photos with your kids!
I hear these four common reasons all the time, “I need to lose weight,” “my hair needs some TLC at the hairdresser,” “I don’t like my smile,” or “even noticing those grey hairs and wrinkles”. But let me share a little secret with you – your kids couldn’t care less about any of that stuff.
What they truly care about is you, just as you are. They cherish having photos with their mom because it’s something incredibly special to them. As your kids grow up, they’ll look back on those pictures and remember all the amazing times you had together, the love you shared, the cozy snuggles you enjoyed.
Imagine the day when your children become parents themselves. They’ll be able to share those treasured photos of you with their own little ones, creating a beautiful connection across generations. Trust me, as someone who cherishes the old photos of my childhood with my parents, you can’t put a price on that kind of sentimental value. So, let’s embrace those moments, capture them in photographs, and create lasting memories that will be cherished by your family for years to come.
Let me share something with you – here’s a photo of me with my children. Can you believe that my eldest daughter is now happily married? Looking at this picture, it holds so much more meaning for me now than when it was originally taken. It’s the last professional family photo we have together before she embarked on her journey as a married woman. My baby has grown up, moved out of our home, and started a new chapter in her life. Time flew by, and I can’t help but feel a tinge of nostalgia. But you know what? I’ll always have this precious memory captured in this photo. It serves as a reminder of the beautiful moments we shared as a family, and even though I can’t turn back time, I hold this memory close to my heart.
So the next time you grab your camera or phone, don’t forget to jump in the picture too! You matter, and being part of those precious moments is truly priceless.
Don’t hesitate to ask someone else to take the photo, or better yet, consider booking a family photo session. It’s a wonderful chance to celebrate you and your amazing family together. Time goes by so quickly, and we never know what tomorrow holds, so let’s make the most of today.
Gather your loved ones, embrace the joy of being in front of the camera, and create memories that will warm your heart for years to come. You deserve to be in the picture, creating a visual legacy that your children will cherish as they grow up.
Let’s capture the love, laughter, and special connections that make your family story truly unique.
