During my professional sporting career, I spent a great deal of time in front cameras. These days, I do almost anything to avoid photographic evidence of my existence. To be honest, I even do my best to avoid mirrors!
When I see myself in pictures, it makes me cringe and even though I vow everyday that I’m going to do something about it, time keeps slipping by and I make another excuse to avoid the camera. The sad thing is, I know many mum’s feel the same way.
What I’ve come to realise is that, avoiding the camera because I don’t like to see my own picture is just plain stupid! So I’ve decided that I want my children to have pictures of me with them more than anything. I want them to see how much I am in their lives, I want them to see the way I looked at them, how my body looks wrapped around them in a hug and how loved they are.
I am not perfect to look at, but I am perfectly their mum. My children need to see a women, a mother and person who has confidence to be herself. I want them to see; the woman who gave birth to them; the woman who nursed them all for the first years of their lives; the woman who survived sleep deprivation just for them, who brushes their teeth, helped them to walk, to talk, tended to their wounds, packs their lunch boxes and who loves them more than anyone in the world! I want them to see ME, for I am everywhere in their young lives!
So today, not only did I manage to get in a picture, I’ve taken my own advice and booked a professional photographer to take beautiful pictures of me and my little loves and simply can’t wait for my session and to share them with you….keep watching this space 🙂
