So as a blogger and business owner a big part of my job is to take photos and we are in the age of the “Selfie” it seems people constantly have their cameras turned the other way around snapping photos of themselves!
I am particularly bad at this there aren’t many photos of me on this blog or really anywhere else part of this in the past has been insecurity, shyness etc. the other part is that I just plain forget! I have never really been the person in front of the camera I’m always the one holding it and for this reason I have missed out on taking some really precious photos. I only have one photo of myself while I was pregnant with my daughter I was so sick and in so much pain right throughout my pregnancy that it didn’t even occur to me that I should take some photos of my baby bump! There are also very limited photos of my daughter and I this is something I am really committed to changing. In 50 years time shes not going to care that I wasn’t wearing make up or that I wasn’t a size 6 she is going to want to see pictures of her mother. I want her to have a huge collection of pictures of our family that she can look back on and laugh about the clothes we were wearing and our hair cuts just like I have done with my parents.
This weekend just gone my husband and I went to Napier for a craft show, I made the effort to put some make up on and go to the balcony of our hotel and not just take a picture of the view but take a picture with my husband.
Now this is the man I see everyday but the last photo of the two of us together was at our wedding over 2 years ago! That’s crazy!! Where is the documentation of the last 2 years of our life? We have done so much in the last 2 years and we have very few pictures to look back on.
