  • Self Portraits of Motherhood on Facebook

  • A Day In The Life

The last few weeks I’ve been a little preoccupied with a new Facebook page I started called “Self Portraits Of Motherhood”. I’ve always thought it extremely important for moms to get in front of the camera and actually be in some of the pictures with their babies.

Self Portraits Of Motherhood

After posting my first “Day in the Life Self Portraits” here on the blog, I received lots of positive feedback and many questions on how to take self portraits. It gave me the idea to start a Facebook group for moms to share their self portraits and discuss things like tripods, and how to use a self timer.

In a matter of days the group took off and we had over 100 self portraits posted to the page.  Moms were loving the challenges and inspiration from the group members. With all the help and support, we were able to create a Community page,  publish themed posts on new Blog, and run an Instagram account!!!

Self Portraits Of Motherhood

truly encourage EVERY mom to think about ways to be in the captured memories with their family.  Your children need to see that you were there, you played with them, you held them, you laughed with them. And you need those pictures too, if not now, then 20 years from now when they are away at college and you need something to look back on.

Recently I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing a sweet mommy and her two daughters. I “met” Angela in a photography group on Facebook, and was so happy when she asked me for a session because we were finally able to meet in real life. Her daughters barely noticed the camera since they were so used to having a photographer (aka mommy) always clicking away.  I was so glad that I could give Angela some pictures with HER in them, too!   Here my favorite shots from the session!

Went out the other day with my loves  and actually brought my real camera with me (not just my phone camera!!). I figured if I’m going to start doing these amazingly fun lifestyle/storytelling sessions than I definitely need to get practice in different types of locations that aren’t typical for a traditional session.  So during our little coffee break I started snapping a way. The main challenge I had was getting over the fact that pulling out a camera in the middle of the store was going to make me look like a total weirdo.  Now,  I can shoot in any location for a wedding, cause everyone can tell why there is a photographer following them around, but I think its especially hard when it’s your own family do typical everyday stuff because people are probably thinking “Oh….another crazy mom with a camera.” But after giving myself a pep talk I did fine.  I just had to say in my head “I don’t care what they think, I don’t care what they think…(everyone’s looking at me)….Ah! Please don’t think I’m a freak…..ok *slap myself* it totally doesn’t matter what they think. I’m getting good shots…just keep going”.

Five minutes later we had our coffee and we were out of there.  I looked at my camera screen and was SO grateful I snapped these sweet shots of my loves.

Nothing like an afternoon at the beach with Papa.

I have an old picture of my dad and I playing at the same beach when I was this age. It’s so special to see my husband doing the same things with our daughter! She LOVED the water and splashed till sand was smeared on her face….and she still continued to play!

Every lifestyle session is completely unique (the reason why I love them so much!) and this session with the Lathrop family was no exception. They had some cute ideas for the session and we had so much fun finding ways to capture those real-life moments in a special way.

The below shot was a special request.  Andrew has gotten similar pictures done with his other two children at this age, so it was only fitting to have one with his youngest done!
