Anyway. The basic gist is that our kids deserve to see photos of their mommas one day. They'll want to. They'll want to be able to know what you looked like when they were babies, and how you looked when you held them, and to see the love on your face. They deserve that. Even though the moms so often feel like the memory keepers, the one who so often ends up behind the camera.
I'm pretty good about this--I often hand my camera over to Declan to let him get shots of me and the girls. I try to, anyway. But I know it's just easier to stay behind the camera most the time. Sometimes it doesn't seem like it's worth the hassle.
This week I finally decided to get my hands on a remote for my camera. When it came I geeked out hardcore and couldn't wait to try it out. Thankfully my sweet little Lucy didn't mind being in some photos with her 'ole Ma.
Yep, I'm in sweatpants. Yep, they aren't technically perfect. But they're photos I now have.
Moms---stay in the picture with your kids. They will thank you one day. Promise.
