When was the last time you were in front of the camera with your kids instead of behind it?

 

I'm a mom. I know there are so many times I would rather keep my sunglasses on and hide behind the lens. But what always strikes me are the comments from my daughters when they see a photo of me with them! They see our connection in a different way, it's a visual reminder of my love for them, and it makes time stand still.

 

The photo below was taken during a family reunion on St. George Island. The photo is of the Ya-Ya's (the Turner girls) and the petite Ya-Ya's (their daughters and granddaughters) - there are so many stories in this image and so much family history. It's definitely one of my all time favorites!

 

"I’m everywhere in their young lives, and yet I have very few pictures of me with them. Someday I won’t be here — and I don’t know if that someday is tomorrow or thirty or forty or fifty years from now — but I want them to have pictures of me. I want them to see the way I looked at them, see how much I loved them. I am not perfect to look at and I am not perfect to love, but I am perfectly their mother," from The Mom Stays In The Picture by Allison Tater Slate.

 

This Mother's Day, make a promise to yourself that you'll get in some of the photos instead of only taking them.

 

Happy Mother's Day!

 

Ya-Yas Forever!
