Why Photo's matter

Updated: Dec 6, 2018


So I'm going to share a little bit about myself and why I think photos matter.


I lost my mum to Breast Cancer when I was 16 and looking back at photos, there weren't as many of her as my sister and I would have liked. She hid behind the camera and from the camera and after having my first son I found myself doing the same. I hated the way I looked.


I think we as mum's and woman can be so self critical, when I look back at photos of my mum all I see is my beautiful mum and think of fond memories. As I'm sure all of you do to when looking back on your family photos.

.

So why do we think our kids will not do the same.


I made a decision shortly after realizing what I was doing that I would be in the photos more. Now this isn't that easy when your other half is useless at taken photos. Most of my photos with the kids are selfies.


So I make sure as a family we have photos done every year....cause my husband's not wired to think....Sarah's playing with the kids....i'll take a picture. He also enjoys cutting my head off or the image is out of focus. If I'm honest I still hate having my photo taken...probably why I ended up with a job on the other side of the camera. I will however always try to be in the photos cause one day, when I'm not here, I want my boys to have images of me to look back on.
