Pictures of Mama

I rarely post photos of myself here, and there are several reasons for that. 
1. I'm usually the one behind the camera.
2. I'm not very experienced at setting up shots with the self-timer.
3. Probably the biggest reason, I'm super critical of how I look in photos. 
(4. I barely have time to post at all these days! I'm trying to be better, I swear!)
After reading Ashley's post today, and the other posts she linked to, I've decided I need to get into photos more often. Because it really is fun to see photos of your parents when they were younger. When we look back at those old photos, we tend not to notice the flaws, but we see family resemblances. And while we don't change as quickly as our kids do, we do change. So I started today. I tried some shots with the timer and I handed the camera to Nate. These photos are for you, Walter. And I'm really going to make an effort to get in the shot more often.

Great post, and a great reminder for someone else who's almost always behind the camera.

I know the feeling. Although with you now being the official Billmeyer photographer, I am in pictures. You look great.

Been there, done that. If it wasn't for photos from school every year, I wouldn't have any. Good for you. And it goes without saying that you never take a bad picture as far as I'm concerned. None of my children do.
