When I started this blog I made a really sad and shocking discovery – I’m missing from most of the baby pictures. Nine months, thousands of beautiful images but only a handful of me. How did that happen?
I couldn’t find any photos of me
When looking for this blog.
Of course there’s plenty of my mini me
With her dad and the dog.
I’m the unofficial photographer of the family,
So I’m never in the picture.
Unless it’s an awkward selfie,
There’s no photos of me and her.
Now most of that is my fault,
I know that is true.
But when she is an adult,
I want her to look back and see that I was there too.
I don’t know why I’m camera shy,
But I don’t want to be.
I think I just need to try
To be more camera friendly.
I don’t want to worry
That my hair is a mess.
That I’m really spotty
Or there’s dirt on my dress.
I know I look better from the back,
But I don’t want to care.
I just want to look back
And have evidence that I was there.
So even if I’m moaning
That my face is make-up free,
Please ignore my groaning
And take the damn photo of me.
Just know that if I pose for it
The photo won’t be pretty.
Because it makes me look like a right tit
When I know the camera is on me!
Anyone else always taking the photos and never actually in them? Please don’t let me be the only one. Let me know in the comments below.
