If you’ve been following me any period of time at all, you’ve heard my spiel about getting in the frames with your kids. I completely understand your need to document their every moment – I am similarly afflicted. And I completely understand that you are your own worst critic. You look in the mirror and you see a zit on your chin or that you need your hair done or those extra fifteen(ish) pounds hanging around. I can’t remember the last time I convinced a mom to get in a shot WITHOUT having to promise a little post processing nip/tuck. And honestly, Moms – we are so much harder on ourselves than we deserve. We only see our flaws. But our kids don’t. They don’t see the zit on your chin or the extra fifteen(ish) pounds. They see their protector, their defender, their comforter. Instead of lamenting about your flabby arms, they are grateful for the solace they provide. Be easy on yourself. This is who you are today, and you are doing the best you can.
Let me tell you something else I’ve picked up on – you will never, ever be perfect. I know that does not come as a shock to most of you, but I have had the most beautiful, fit, gorgeous women ask me to photoshop out their flaws. You will never be “picture perfect”. And by now, y’all know me. That’s not what I’m here for.
Get in the frame. Hug and love on your kids. Just like you are capturing memories of your children, give them memories of the Mama they remember. Create images for them that they can one day show their kids and grandkids, and they can show their kids and grandkids. I promise you when they look back, they won’t notice the extra weight. They’ll see the love in your face, the connection you shared. They’ll feel the memories as they relive them. And that’s what it’s about.
