Shoot Me! 1/52

I love this idea!

For moms to stop hiding behind the camera.

This is what Carin over at Forever in Blue Jeans has to say about her mimi,

Shoot Me! It’s time to stop hiding behind that camera of yours. Your family is missing you in the picture. So it’s time to post a picture of YOU (yes, you) every Thursday with your child, your spouse, your friend, your dog, or even by yourself. Just get in the picture, you’ll be glad you did! And just jump in now with 1 of 52, you can do it!”

So today I’ll begin to share my camera with others. (I’ve always had a problem sharing.) To allow myself to be photographed doing my normal daily things with my family. One picture (at least) each week, must include Mom.

No excuses.

No make-up? No problem.
Got a bloated stomach? No problem.
My arms look fat and jiggly? No problem.

Absolutely no excuses. So please humor me and act interested.

I have so few pictures of me with my first few daughters when they were young. I was always the one taking the pictures. Now my first few are old enough to share my camera (in a VERY closely monitored situation.) Doesn’t mean they’re good photographers, but hey, a blurry picture covers a multitude of sin. 😉

So here we go…..

Last night after watering the flowers and grass…..

I took all the kids on a walk through our village. Through vineyards….

(Maybe my kids will learn to be better photographers by the time this year is up!)

..and through the back streets.

We walked so far, Justice ended up with blisters. He got a free ride home. 😉

    I hate my picture taken!

    I have several where Kayla has snapped a random picture here and there…and believe me when I say they are terrible.

    Maybe I will let her take a few on purpose ;o)
