When was the last time you had a picture of yourself with your children? Or your parents for that matter? I suddenly came to the realisation that the last time I had a photo with my eldest daughter was about 4 years ago. I haven't even tried to remember how long it was with my other three children. I wanted to enter a mother and daughter competition, and was looking through all my photos, not quite believing I could not find one of us that didn't go back that far. I couldn't even really find one of myself that didn't have me with a camera in front of my face.
I sort of avoid camera's myself. Probably because I must be vain and Im getting older and not liking some of what I see. But the thing is, if I suddenly fell off the earth, my husband and kids, and the rest of my family wouldn't even have a photo of me, or with me. As I have said in my "about me" section of my website, we don't have many photos from my childhood, and I have one photo of my grandmother holding my Mum when she was a toddler. I look at that photo a lot. It makes me sad to think I don't know what my grandparents looked like, and now that my mum has gone too, I wish I had taken more opportunity's to have some pictures with her. I have a few snaps, and I cherish these. I really do.
I'm going to round my children up. Not really an easy task when half of them are grown up, and hard to tie down, but I'm going to do it. What am I waiting for... to lose a little weight? Get younger? Well that's not going to happen! Lets face it we are only ever as young as we are today ... Mothers day is coming up in a few months. Its going to be my Mothers Day present to myself, and although I don't really need reminding, also to reaffirm how important those in my life are to me. -Liz-
I believe in working with you to create images you will love, and cherish, because "It's all about you!"
