Somewhat Selfie

Moms are rarely in family pics because they’re behind the camera. Every once in a while I’ll set the camera up on a tripod and try to get some shots with me in the frame. This was taken in 2011 – we all look so much younger!

Here is the original:

  1. It is so true that mom’s are rarely in photos. I have started reminding my hubby to take photos of my with the kids and I try to take as many selfies as I can. One day it is all they will have left of me…and one day it will be all that I have of my small children. I like the idea of setting up a tripod as well!
