I love pictures. I’m constantly taking pictures with my phone or my camera and my husband is known to groan when at yet another family event I demand that a picture of the whole family be taken. But as much as I love taking pictures and recording memories of my family, I don’t like being IN the pictures. It’s a total self-esteem thing because I just hate the way I look in photos. But by not getting into the picture with my family, I’m not only hurting myself but also hurting my kids. When I’m old and gone, I want them to be able to look back at pictures and see their Mom in them. I want them to be able to recall fun memories and SEE me in the pictures with them.
When going through photos from the last few months, it was hard to find some with me even in one. They all have just my kids or my kids with my husband. I was only able to find a few and I remember thinking, the picture is only for ME, I’m not going to share it with others or anything. But why? They are pictures with my adorable kids, where THEY are happy with their Mom!
What I need is Camera Courage. Not only do I LOVE Dove products, I’m also excited to see what Dove is doing for women across the country. Dove wants all women to feel beautiful in front of the camera. Find your #cameracourage, and fall in love with the camera again. This Saturday, visit a Walmart near you to participate in the Camera Courage Photo Booths! Find a store near you here.
Show off your Camera Courage!
Join the #cameracourage movement. Instagram a photo of yourself and tag the photo with #cameracourage. Share with your friends to spread the #cameracourage message.
My son asked to make a silly face in the picture…usually I would say, no let me take a picture of YOU but I decided to get in on it! No regrets! 😉
While you’re at Walmart this weekend, make sure to check out the Camera Courage Photo Booth AND Dove products at Walmart’s low, everyday prices!
So, moms….will you get #cameracourage with me?
