Exist in Pictures Baby Photographer South East London
Wow! 2017 already! I know it’s cliche but doesn’t time fly when you have fun?
I don’t know about you but I love to give myself goals every year. I don’t do resolutions, as they never last, but I do make a list of what I want to acheive and I always keep it close by to remind myself how far I’ve come and how far I need to go!
My list isn’t long this year. Of course, it includes work related items as well as family ones. But do you know what my main goal is this year?
I want to have more pictures of me and my kids together. I want to exist in pictures.
We, mums, are all the same. We’re never happy with the way we look, our hair is always messy or we need to lose 10lbs. So we take the pictures of the children with Dad, with the grandparents, with uncles and aunties and friends… We very rarely get on the other side of the camera. We all think it’s fine, it doesn’t matter…
But let me tell you something: it really does! Photographs are the best way to remember what you looked like at a certain moment in time. And your children will want to see that. They will want to see pictures of you when you were expecting them, when they were born, when they celebrated their first birthday, pictures of you as they grow older and become these amazing little people that love you for who you are, that have always found you beautiful and that don’t care you need to lose weight. Because one day, these pictures are all they will have left.
