One of my favorite bloggers who I've been following for a very long time, Emily Anderson, does a link up from time to time on Thursdays called "Embrace the Camera."
In her words, the purpose of this link up....
"One day I was looking for a picture of my mom and I together, growing up, and I realized that I hardly have any with her in them. There are plenty of just me, but only a few with her. I didn't want that for my kids. I want them to have an abundance of pictures with us together. I want them to remember me, and our day to day interactions.
The fun times we had.
The real times we had.
I wanted to make sure I was a part of those memories."
I love this! I want to be a part of my daughter's pictures and past, and it's all too easy to stay behind the camera because I don't like the size of my hips or my hair hasn't been washed in 4 days...but one day when I'm gone, I'm sure my daughter won't care about any of those things.
So with that said, I'm going to do my best to start embracing the camera with my baby girl.
Even if she covers her face up when I try!
Oh! One more thing...I got a blog facelift thanks to Aubrey at Kinch Designs. She was so easy to work with and I love how it turned out! If you're reading in google reader, head on over to my blog to see the new look!
