Get in the frame Mama

If you’re a head-over-heels-in-love-with-your-kid mama like me, you know you can spend all day (and your entire phone memory) on photos and videos of your babe. And hey, that’s what Dropbox was created for.

It dawned on me however, that I don’t have very many of us together.
And let’s be honest, you don’t exactly want to take a selfie mid day sans makeup with traces of avocado in your hair.

The truth is, later in life it’s likely your offspring will cherish that the most; childhood photos with you IN them.
So get in front of the camera once in a while and don’t always hide behind it.
Also if you’re slightly on the morbid side like myself, if something were to happen to you (god forbid), you wouldn’t want to leave them with nothing would you?

Here are some photographs my talented and fabulous friend Ariane Laezza took of Oscar & I at home, in our comfort zone and in the place we love most. Ariane, thank you for capturing my heart!
