Raise your hand if you hate getting in front of the camera? Yup, me too. For as much time as I spend with a camera in my hand, I am still apprehensive to step in front of that camera myself. And despite my deep love of preserving our moments, I am mostly absent in these moments.
Like most mommas out there, I have insecurities when it comes to seeing myself in photos. I fixate on the way I look rather than how my kiddos will feel when they see these photos. I keep forgetting that when my little look back on these photos that they will see a momma that loved them deeply, and not someone who could have looked a little better with a few more hours of sleep.
Being content is a huge core value in our house…and it is time I start listening to the words I am peaching to my own. Does being content mean falling in love with those deep squint wrinkles in between my nose?!?! Ya, well that is never gonna happen. I might not become BFFs with those groves on my face, but I can learn to love the season of life I am in right now. I can push down the insecurities I have and show my crew of 4 who I am, in front of and behind the camera.
