Getting in the Frame
I am on a photography forum called Clickin' Moms and one of the main topics of conversations is how everyone has so little pictures of themselves with their kid/s. Now at least once a week a new thread of mom's getting in the frame with their kids. In fact, they started a group with the goal of posting pictures monthly of mom getting in the frame.
When this trend started, I look back at pictures from my childhood. I noticed there are very few of my mom and I. Maybe a handful. I would say 90% of the pictures are of us kids. So when I had my daughter back in August, I promised myself that I would not let that be me. It also got me thinking, what is the one thing most of my clients request for there photo session? Without a doubt one with mom and kids and on with dad and kids. You can look at my past sessions and see mom and dad in separate photos with their kids.
I would love to offer this as a session option to my clients. If you are a mom interested in having your picture taken with your little one monthly or yearly, please contact me for more details. I would love to help you have more pictures of you with your child/children.
I promised myself that was not going to be me. I am not going to care if I think I look fat or if I have make up on. It is more important for me to make memories with my daughter. So starting in January I joined the group, got out my DSLR, remote, and tripod and started taking pictures. I am so glad I did. Here is my share for February.
