Family photos? This is you…
You would love to book a family photo shoot for you and your babies for three main reasons (but you still haven’t!).
- You are absent from most of your family photos because you are always the one taking them! No-one ever thinks to take a picture of you with your kids, and once you’ve asked, the moments gone
- The only photos you do appear in are selfies, and we all know how difficult taking a good selfie is! Take 5196
- Your babies are growing up and fast! How many times have you heard yourself saying ‘they are literally growing up in front of my eyes!’?
Blink and you’ll miss it!
Parenting is full of ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ moments, and when you were pregnant I bet loads of people told you to cherish every moment ‘because they grow up so fast!’
So what’s stopping you from getting natural, timeless memories of your family? Not in a formal and cheesy way, but in a relaxed and natural way. Where you personalities and connection are captured.
You keep telling yourself you can’t book a shoot yet because you need to lose weight, or you haven’t got anything to wear.
I hear you! The thought of being in front of the camera when you don’t feel 100% you is a scary thought.
Am I right?!
I totally get where you are coming from because we all feel like this when we don’t feel as good as we’d like to. I know you want to look your absolute best but it’s not just about you.
You are doing this for your kids!
How our babies see us.
Before writing this post this evening, I asked my boys to describe me in one word. And do you know what they said? Lovely and kind.
They don’t think about how I look. That isn’t even on their radar because that’s not important to them.
All they see is their mummy and how lovely and kind she is!
You are perfect to them in every single way because you love them unconditionally and you are their world .
In 10, 20 or 30 years time they want to be able to look back at their childhood memories, with you in them. They want to see how much love you had as a family, how young YOU looked and how beautiful you are. They will want to reminisce.
So, despite all of your niggles and worries about what you look like, all they will ever see is how lovely and kind you were and that makes you THE most beautiful person in their world
In the words of Baz Luhrmann ( which was actually written by Mary Schmich, aged 44yrs old).
“You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded away. But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall, in a way you can’t grasp now, how fabulous you really looked.
Enjoy your body. It is the greatest instrument you’ll ever own. Don’t be afraid of what people think of it”
So, if you’re gonna do one thing that scares you everyday, than make it this! Book YOUR family photo shoot.
