Not the best camera phone self-portrait, but it’s got the bears and I in it so it’s priceless. I have a photographer friend on Facebook who recently mentioned that she is doing a 52 week project where she makes sure that she gets into the photo with her children each week. I love that idea! It’s all too often that I am the one taking the photo, or I’m begging for my photo not to be taken.I’m a week behind, but I’m going to try to do the same and maybe double up one week to catch up to the calendar itself.
This is also inspired by my mom who, after a 15-20 year stint of NOT wanting her photo taken, has recently decided she will be in the picture. Awesome!!!!
This photo was taken at bedtime while the bears were watching their wind-down television show Little Bear. My camera is on the flip side of my phone so this one was taken without me being able to line us all up, hence me being partially in the photo. I’ll have to figure out how to use my ‘real’ camera and set a timer so we can do some fun and silly poses.
I’m pretty sure Cbear was not happy with the insanely bright flash that happened right before the photo was taken. I can totally see this as the look Cbear will give me when he’s about 12 years old and I do something that embarrasses him. Bbear, of course, was happy to be snuggled next to me
