Today, I'm linking up with Emily, of The Anderson Crew, for her weekly Embrace the Camera feature. Some of you may have read this essay, published by The Huffington Post. Well, Emily was ahead of the game. She like, so, totally, already came up with that. ;) She also has one of my favorite blogs. But I digress ...
Embrace the Camera is about encouraging mamas to get in the picture, instead of always being the one taking the photos! Your littles want to see pictures of you with them! Now. And they will again someday, as older children, or adults.
This picture was taken yesterday, in front of the Denver Zoo's Lorikeet Adventure exhibit, where my new friend Helen graciously offered to take a family photo for us. It's not perfect. I'm standing awkwardly. My shirt is doing something weird. Maile isn't looking at the camera. Her shirt is doing something weird. Yet it's perfect. Because it's us. In the moment. As a family. And it really doesn't get much better than that.
You can get the dealio on Embrace the Camera here. I encourage you to participate!
