Mother's Day Photography in Cambridge

Mother’s Day Photography in Cambridge

Are you a ‘ghost Mum’?  Yes, you – the one in your family always taking the pictures but have very few family photographs with you in them?  Why is that? Mother’s Day photography in Cambridge.

It got me thinking… Mums are always snapping away… Particularly with our smartphone cameras.  We have hundreds of pictures of our kids, often including our husbands.  But why are we never in them?  I know I’m guilty of it!  Sometimes because I have no make-up on, and sometimes because I’m still in my PJs. Perhaps I feel bloated and can’t bear the thought of how I will look in the picture, or I know I have really greasy hair.  But are these REALLY valid excuses?

I love going through old photos of my own childhood.  Our family holidays, my first day at school, every Christmas – my Mum is in them all. And I never think about the fact she may have no make up on… Or she’s in her dressing gown… Or she may feel fat!  I wonder how I’d feel if she didn’t feature in these old photos because she was worried about how she looked or because Dad never offered to take the camera?  I certainly don’t want my children growing up, looking back at our family albums, and wondering why I was never in the picture with them!

Braving the camera

So this Mother’s Day I’m making myself a promise.  I will pass my camera to my husband and be in more of the family pictures, despite what I’m wearing or whether I think I look overweight!  I want my children to see me as their loving Mum, always there, when they look back at our old photo albums.
