#inthepicture| Me with my kids in June

Me in the picture

Did you jump #inthepicture with the kidlets this month? I did! I mean, I didn't actually get a photo with all the kids at the same time, but I did manage to get a few with one or two of them and it was dark on all occasions so you can barely see me anyway. That works for me! I thought it might be fun to have a little photo game each month, ...

#inthepicture | Me with my kids in May

April #inthepicture

Another month of attempted in the picturing, another abysmal fail. The photo above is it, taken unexpectedly at a friend's backyard party, which is just as well or I wouldn't have anything to put up this month. You can't actually see the kids, or even me for that matter, which is why this is a fail! I am starting to realise that it's not just my ...

We mums have been missing from family photos for years and years and it's time we jumped back #inthepicture. Being insecure and self-conscious and shy ...

Connect | I can never put myself back in the picture

Mum and me

I love photography and I hate photos of myself, but even I was surprised when I couldn't find a single recent shot of myself and my children. Not one. I frantically started scrolling back through months and months and then years and years of photos, thousands and thousands of photos, and found about three photos of myself and just one with me ...
