I am NOT very photogenic. In fact, I hate pictures of myself. But I read a story that was floating around on the internet, and while true or not, it does make one think.
The daughter, grown, married and had just had her second baby, was going through her mother's pictures trying to gather pictures for a slideshow. You see, her mother had died just a few days before. As she was going through the pictures, she realized that there were very few pictures of her mother. Her mother had always tried to avoid the camera, or was always the one behind the camera. Even in the videos they watched, the noticed how few times she actually was in front of the camera.
I don't want my children to be missing pictures of me. Of course my favorite pictures of me are the ones of me with my kids. THe ones where we are giggling and wrestling or playing. But my beloved, being a photographer wanna be (who really is a COULD be if he wanted to and had the drive to) took a picture of me that I really liked. So I place it here. A picture of me (greying hair and all), for my kids to know and realize that Momma is trying. For them....
