me and my little love

After I did that very special mother -and-son session this week it reminded me of that article on the Huffington Post about the importance of getting in the photographs with your children … even if you aren’t photograph ready.  (you know your hair is a mess, your make-up isn’t on and perhaps you are still in your jammies).  If you haven’t read it — it’s truly fabulous!   And not only that, it resonates with sooooooo many mothers, (me, included).

So, tonight, Tyler joined me on a scouting adventure.  And while I was scouting this lovely location for sunset photographs, it occurred to me that we should snap a picture together.   I used the picnic table, set my timer and snapped this:

 

 

… and it isn’t technically perfect and my outfit certainly isn’t fabulous … but I love it just the same. And you can bet it will be hanging in my house very soon!

    @[564854975:2048:Callie] … aww – thanks!! My little guy thinks the timer is hilarious … (I guess I look little a funny lady running to and from the camera). I have a remote, but it doesn’t get the giggles quite like this. 😉 And yes … you soooo need to do it!ReplyCancel

    @[100000803636335:2048:Annette] … thanks, mom. I had a session tonight that rescheduled because of a stomach thing and I wanted to keep Tyler away from our house … so, it kinda worked out perfect. 😉ReplyCancel

    You DID inspire this, 100%! Next time I take him out, I’ll remember to put on some makeup just in case. 😉 ReplyCancel
