His view is built on the notion of how the one taking the photos is really missing out on being in the photos. We can all relate to this simple act, as most modern forms of picture snapping is really routed in capturing moments for ourselves. So that we can remember.

The reality is hard when we flip it around and ask a child to share what they see. Because it brings the true meaning of the images we give to our children.

Do you find yourself snapping photos of all the cute things your children are doing?

Are you taking these images for yourself or with the intent to share them with others?

Do you find yourself missing from photos because you are too busy taking them?

If you answered YES to almost all these questions, please read on.

I have a true story to share.

Baby Claire - celebrating motherhood - day 4

If you are just joining, this week on the blog I am hosting a series celebrating Motherhood. With Mother's Day approaching, I think it is important to acknowledge the feelings we all experience as mothers. In April, I invited women with little ones to share their journey's and gift each of them with beautiful images that showcase just how perfect they are in their child's eyes. They were asked two simple questions, 1) what melts your heart watching your little one(s) grow and 2) on the flip side what could you really do without. This series showcases their replies and my hope is to bring back a bit more self love to the motherhood journey.
