This weekend I remembered the best camera accessory I've even purchased, my remote!
They didn't all work out...
But I did capture one that is just perfect...
...from TC smirk to Addie's bord messy face - it captures my girls' personalities at this moment. (And this is why I will be using this picture for pretty much everything all summer.)
I set my camera up in a few places, set it on a 2 second delay and played as normal.
Sure I felt a little silly but in the years to come I know I wont be thinking about how silly I felt doing this I will just be glad to have some pictures on my little girl so excited about painting that she kept begging me to get her more paint.
I know there are so many reasons not to be in the picture, from just being the one always behind the camera to not feeling comfortable at this weight/in this outfit/while my hair was a mess/no makeup/whatever the reason but I am encouraging you to turn that camera around. I know it is because I lost my dad when I was 20 that I am so sensitive to this, I was robbed the opportunity to make up for lost time with him. Our time on earth is not guaranteed, I want my girls to have everyday memories to look back on whenever my number is called.
