Okay, I'm doing it! I realize that one day my kids are going to look back on old photos and there will be very few pictures of their mom (usually because I'm the one behind the camera!). Emily over at The Anderson Crew hosts a weekly Embrace the Camera link up, because (as she puts it):
have you ever embraced the camera? if you haven't, why not?
it's important for your kids/family members/etc. to have memories of YOU. one day, you won't be around, and all they will have are those 2 pictures you let someone take of you at christmas time.
stop messing around and make some memories...and capture those memories...with YOU IN THEM.
it's that important.
So, I decided it's about time to stop shying away from the lens and pass it off to someone else for a change. I handed the camera to Sutton and told him to start snapping away.
Sawyer was annoyed that I wanted to post this one since he was in the middle of chewing his snack (on the couch, of course), but it was the only one of Sutton's shots that wasn't extra blurry. He got over it once we passed the camera over to him.
Me & Sutton
I LOVE this one because it's totally genuine...the camera is right in our faces because his hands are on both of our bellies tickling us like crazy! He was shouting "show me those smiles!" the whole time. Hysterical. We'll definitely be doing this more often!
So there you have it...me! Just in case you were wondering what I look like :P
