Let them take your picture – good or bad hair day

So last week, I was having a conversation with a friend of mine, who I will not call out by name except to say that she is bringer of beauty to other people, and we were talking about family photos and she was saying how they hadn’t taken one in a while and she was knew they should and were going to, but she was not looking forward to it because she was unhappy with something about the way she looked. ( Now, for the record, I would give an arm and a leg to have her body- which is probably what it take to get down to her weight for me and she is always super stylish when I see her with great hair)

And while we were talking about it, I understood, far too well, what she was talking about.  Many of us, especially women, avoid the camera because we don’t have makeup on or out hair isn’t right or we’re wearing something that isn’t the most flattering.  However, this is a demon, I’ve been working on facing mostly because I read an article online like 5 or so years ago after seeing a story about on the news, that really kind of changed my thoughts on that.  It was a post on the Huffington Post called the Mom Stays in the Picture.  I don’t think I can do the original post justice, so here is a link:


And what I want to say is this.  As we roll into the Holidays, smile for the camera, you aren’t getting this Christmas back.  Let there be a record that you were there and happy because years from now, those pictures will be worth more than we can even imagine.
