I absolutely loved hearing how this mom asked her husband for a family portrait session for her birthday. No diamonds, iPads, or massages ... just some family photo memories of these precious times with her two young children and hubby. I hate sounding like a broken record but I can't stress enough how it is so important for moms to get on the other side of the camera. So many of us moms are the soul "family record keepers" and we never get into any of the photos. On this upcoming Sunday for Mother's Day I ask each of you to let go and give your camera to your husband, boyfriend or even your children and have them snap some photos of you with your loved ones. Trust me, in 20 years from now you will be so glad you did! And stay tuned .... today I had a fabulous day shooting 28 first time moms with their brand new babies at a lovely spring picnic. It was a day I will never forget.
