The Mommy & Me link up started in October 2012. I read an article about moms being in the picture or the pact their of. I wrote a post on it and Emily said it would be a great link up idea. That is where Mommy & Me Monday started.
As a new mama, I always found myself behind the camera. Mainly because I was home with the mini everyday and there to capture everything she did. Every coo, smile, giggle, milestone, etc. My phone was out all day long. When I uploaded my pictures, I had hundreds each week.
Out of those hundreds of pictures I was probably in one. The husband was probably in at least 20 of them. I was always the one behind the camera. Also, I can’t say I was in love with my postpartum body and wasn’t jumping at the chance to get in front of the camera.
But the thing is, in ten years when I’m looking back at those precious pictures, I won’t matter how I looked. Or if I had showered that day or not. It will be all about the picture, the memory of the sweet moments between my daughter and I. I don’t want to look back years down the road and wish I would have had more pictures together. That is why we started this link up. I hope you’ll join us and get IN the pictures!
Here are the details:
*The link up will be held every Monday. You can link up on my blog or over at Emily’s.
*The purpose of the link up is to encourage MOMS TO GET IN THE PICTURE & share your pictures with us, Write about the picture or just include it at the end of your usual Monday post.
*I plan on labeling each post with Mommy and Me that way my child/children one day can look back at the label and see all of the pictures I shared.
Pictures of them when they were little.
Pictures of their mommy in her younger years.
Pictures of the unconditional love you share and the moments that you never want to forget.
I know we will all look back through these pictures as time goes on and be thankful that we have them.
So, grab a button and join us for Mommy and Me Monday!
