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.
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!!!
I 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.
And after you get those shots, share them with us!!!
