After my post "My Baby and Me", I had an inspiration. I am trying to be better about taking action on my ideas, so here it goes. I have created a Facebook group just for mamas/moms. If you are a mom of any age, to children, of any age, I invite you to join the group. Here's what the group is all about:
As mothers, it is too easy to get lost behind the camera. It is wonderful to document others, but what about mama?
I am putting a call out to all mamas with babies (no matter how old those babies might be)!
I invite you to join "My Baby(ies) and Me". This is a space that is meant to inspire you to take more pictures of yourself with your child(ren). My hope is that there will be some kind of ripple effect, whereby seeing the photos of other moms and their children, you'll start taking more photos with you in them, too. With the technology of today, it is easy to take a quick picture of yourself with your child(ren). Simply extend your arm, aim the camera, and click! Better yet, set up a tripod, and/or set the self-timer.
You are beautiful just the way you are. Don't let yourself be the one who never appears in pictures. Your baby(ies) need(s) photos of you, too.
So, are you in? I would be oh so happy for you to come along and start your photo series of you and your baby(ies); age does not matter. Once you request to join the group and are accepted, I encourage you to also tell your mom-friends about it, too. Please help me spread the word. How much more beautiful can you get than a photo of a mother and her child(ren)?
And for a little more encouragement/inspiration . . .
