Moms, you need to be in front of the camera more often.
I’ve heard every excuse in the book for why a mom doesn’t want to be photographed. They’ll say things like…my hair is a mess today, my makeup isn’t camera ready, I didn’t come prepared for pictures, I need to loose some weight first, etc, etc, etc. Here’s the truth. In 10 years, you’ll look back at yourself today and think you looked pretty good! We aren’t getting any younger. The truth is that your child doesn’t care how you think you look. The photo of you with your child/newborn isn’t about YOU in the first place. You should be photographed with your children as often as possible because you want to give them something to treasure. You are your child’s first love.
Moms are always the ones holding the camera and coaxing the smiles. Take advantage of every opportunity you have to get in the picture with your little ones. Especially if you’ve booked a session with a professional photographer! Get in front of that camera and create something to last life long.
Hand over that camera to dad when you’re at home snuggling and ask him to take a photo of you with your baby. And then PRINT THE PICTURES so they won’t become lost pixels.
Mom, your little love will want to remember you just the way you are today.
Here’s a perfect example.
This mom came prepared for a mommy and me portrait at her son’s 1 year old session. Afterwards she critiqued her self, like we all do, and decided not to purchase this image. After she went home, she called back and said she’d changed her mind. She had walked around her house and looked at all the pictures. She had looked back on the pictures taken at his first birthday party. She’d come to the realization that there are hardly any of her and him together during his whole first year. She was always holding the camera. That makes a beautiful moment like this one infinitely more valuable. Good job, Mom. This portrait will become one of yours, and his, greatest treasures.
This sweet boy just graduated from our Beautiful Baby Plan. This was his 1 year old session. Our Baby Plan includes sessions at Newborn, 6m, and 12m. Their first year beautifully captured.
Silly boy…and oh so precious.
