|The boys declared this was the lamest thing ever- but I’m glad I ignored their advice. I love this series of shots of us together! #mamaknowsbest|
My one word of caution is that I think its really important to always get a few photos of the whole story as well when you are documenting a day. The full outfits of at least a few people even if you cant get in the shot, and the location. How cool is it to look back on photos from years gone by and see that ugly couch, that cool car, those leg warmers and the skyline that has since changed? I wouldn’t want an album full of only selfies, but I think they add a great and well needed dimension to our albums. I recently designed a page kit to celebrate my love of selfies, called, what else- but Your Selfie. The creative team is playing with it this weekend- and I will share their layouts with you a little later.
For now, consider this permission to take a few photos of yourself. (A while back, I wrote a post that had a great video explaining why we never really like photos of ourselves- you can check it out here.) Have fun and don’t take it all too seriously- life’s to short to wait for someone else to take a photo of you!
