Me, me, me!

These days I don't have too many pictures of myself. It's a natural progression, I suppose; my kids are the cute, precocious ones now, the center of my and Alfie's world. We don't change much, so there isn't the urgency to capture our moments as much as theirs. Truthfully, if I were a bit more confident about my looks and figure, I'd probably be strutting my stuff in front of the camera more than I do. As it is, most of the recent photos of me are taken with kids:


But once in a while, I let loose and say, to hell with self-consciousness. Today is my day. I want a portrait of me.

Great shots! First the Mom acting like a loving Mom and then letting loose like the child-at-heart you really are. Just like most of us. :D

Wonderful and such a fun photo. I rarely am not the one holding the camera, so it was a rare chance when I let them get a pic of me,
Good day, Hope you'll visit my 14th Photo Hunt... A Self Portrait" at The Cafe.

LOVE it. I agree we need to turn the camera on ourselves more often. I, for one, loved seeing pictures of my Mom "back in the day." So, at the very least, we should preserve the memory of our younger selves for the kids...

I ♥ the second one! :)
Great job. Happy Hunting.

I did the same thing--almost no pictures of me because I always do the kids--so I had my son take one of me. :) Great shots!!!!
