“This was a hard one for me. I don’t get in front of the camera often, especially not up close and personal. I had no idea what I was going to do for this shot, so while I was outside with the girls I just lay on the ground and started taking selfies. Then my husband came home on his break and started making me laugh.
This is me. I don’t love this image, but it is me and it is real. I tell my clients how beautiful they are in their photos because often they don’t see it. It’s so hard to see the beauty in ourselves, to accept who we are and love who we are.
I am not perfect, and neither is this photo. But it is me and I know my kids will want to see me in photos too.”
