embrace the camera: sept 16th

"in this day and age of the "momarazzi", many of us are always behind the lens...rather in front of it.
some of you feel much more comfy behind the lens, and i get that.
look, you think i want pictures of myself in the same velour jogging suit for the 3rd day in a row {i slept in that jogging suit each night too---i know, gross, right?}
well, i don't really want those pictures...but my kids do---or, at least they will one day.
how many of you LOVE looking at pictures of your parents, when they were young{er}?
i'm raising my hand!
sadly, i don't have a lot of pictures with me and my mom from when i was younger.
i am off to change this for my kids.
i want them to have an abundance of pictures...to remind them of these days that we spent at home together...
embrace the camera."
wording copied from the anderson crew blog


This is me and sweet Penelope- she was snoozing in my arms in my parent's backyard




This is Ella and I meeting a Meerkat at the zoo.

So go grab your camera and snap a pic of you and your kiddos...

What a precious picture of you and your baby! I' not sure Ella was ready to meet that big meercat! I'd be hesitant too!

That is one of the reasons I embrace "Embrace the camera" so much because I only have a few photos with my mom in the picture with me as a really little child and baby. The ones I have are so precious to me. I particularly love ones that are candid and show activities done together.
