I Don’t Have Pictures Of My Mom…

Why Family Photos Are Important:

It hit me the other day while processing all of the recent model and family sessions that I don’t have many pictures of my mom. There are many reasons why; it was too windy and she didn’t want to mess up her hair, she wasn’t “dressed for the occasion”, she was the one taking the pictures, or as my teen years set in: it just wasn’t cool to have a photo with mom and dad, and I was WAY too cool for that. My mom is frozen in my head at about the age of 55 or 60, and let me tell you, we just celebrated her 80th birthday. Where the heck did the time go? I found myself searching for photographs, images I have stored in my head and memory, but couldn’t seem to locate in print. Words resonated in my head from recent family sessions we have done: things like, well I don’t have to be in them do I? Can’t you just take the kids? Or please crop me out! My hair, my belly, my this, my that. Lets face it, not many of us, as we age, LOVE to have our photo taken. Our kids look fabulous, and we, well just don’t look as fabulous as we used too! lol We are all human with human imperfections and things we don’t like about our outwards appearances, but the one constant is that all of the families I work with ADORE their kids and would do anything for them! So let me just throw this out there…the images we take are not just for you to remember your children as they grow, but these images might just be for them to remember you later on. So while you might not like your belly, butt, growing “smile lines”, or its just not cool to take a pic with mom and dad…do it, and do it now, so that you aren’t regretting your lack of captured memories down the road! Next time I see my mom, probably at Christmas; I’m going to take some pictures with her! 😉

Please enjoy these sneak peeks from our most recent sessions with our 2015 Epic Teen Model Reps and their families…
