We take so many pictures of our kids. They are so cute, they are changing so fast, we want to capture every single moment.
I am rarely in a photo myself. Of course, since I am the photographer in the family, I am going to be the person who is usually taking the pictures. But I keep saying "I need more pictures of myself with my kids!".
...Isn't that so true????
Who cares if we are overweight, out of shape, full of gray hair, not nearly as "attractive" as we once were. Our kids know what we look like! And our kids love us exactly as we are right now. And they will someday love pictures of us as we are right now. They want to remember us. They want pictures that they can show their kids and their grandkids.
And they will treasure those photos forever.
So I am going to try to follow this advice as well. Today I took some photos of my Caroline in our backyard. It was such a gorgeous evening.
