Mothers Day – it’s that time of year again and it has made me think. Even before I was a professional photographer I was the self appointed family camera holder. I have many many images of my kids as they have grown up but how many images do I have of me with them? The answer to that is one or two and those are when I reluctantly stepped the other side of the camera at family events. I bet you and or your mother says ‘oh no don’t take my picture – I’m too fat/I’ve got no make up on or (the one I hear all the time as a photographer) I always look awful in pictures. Well my daughter pulled me up on this whilst I was editing the mother and daughters shoots below. She told me it made her sad to think she and her brother had so few images of me as they were growing up and that would be something she would treasure and like to share with her children. Guilted out by a 17 year old.
My call to all you mothers out there is step in front of the camera once in a while, your kids won’t care about your hair or the size of your bum (hopefully it won’t be in shot anyway!) they will just care that they have you.
As well as the shots of them together I always take the opportunity for some individual shots.
Then the girls together.
Another of them all.
What a beautiful family of women.
And finally Wendy you are one ‘hot’ mother!
