If you’re like me you are the one holding the camera. Capturing the happy smiles and preserving memories for their future. But what about YOU!?
My mom used to teach photography preservation classes and one of the things she often encouraged participants was to make sure to put themselves in the photo sometimes. You don’t want your kids looking at the photos decades from now wondering – Where’s mom?
Sprout had similar thoughts and they are encouraging moms to put themselves in the picture with their #MomisHere giveaway – an awesome giveaway that has a grand prize of a $2,000 Spa Package giveaway! It’s amazing. And so simple to enter, isn’t it?
I love taking photos of my kids and I always find something to criticize in my own pictures. But that’s not what they will remember is it? Not the little wrinkles around my eyes when I smile. Not my wild hair. Not my freckles.
They will remember the love. The fun times we had. The little moments of laughter we make for ourselves throughout the day. Our Eskimo kisses and our high-fives and our afternoons riding bikes around in the street or planting pots together. The quiet evenings when they “help” me work.
What are you waiting for? This is kind of like my principle of Get Your Hair Wet parenting – but easier. Just put yourself in the picture every so often. And hey, you could win a dream spa vacation in the process! Ten additional winners will get $100 Spafinder gift cards…perfect for mothers.
How to enter? Share a photo of yourself (you must be 18 or over) with your kiddos (your minor children 8 and under) with the hashtag #MomisHere at the Sprout website, or via Instagram like I did above, and viola! You are entered. But you have to submit your photo entry before the sweepstakes ends April 27th so go! Photo!
