Exist in Portraits… For your children, With your Children, this Mothering Sunday.
There are just over 4 weeks away until Mothering Sunday, being a mother is one of the most rewarding and also hardest jobs! I’m a big fan of a day of celebrating women and their amazingness in general and make them feel really appreciated.
One of the ways I feel is important is the exist in portraits movement I’m championing. Mums in general are so busy day to day, we go through our lives taking photos of everyone else (children/grandchildren) and not ourselves. We are the missing person on those family photos on holiday and fun key times we like to capture. When was the last time you had a professional portrait done? At school? Your wedding day?
As time has gone by I’ve heard comments such as “just the children please, no one wants to see me!” or “I’ve gained weight, I need to loose a few pounds”, I say don’t worry I can loose pounds off you just in posing, there is no need to worry, I will show you how beautiful you are. Mums are always thrilled to have been included and children are delighted that Mum exists in portraits with them. There is pride in knowing that for the rest of their lives and their future generations, they will always have portraits that show them as beautiful, confident and strong woman that they are. Now that is a priceless gift!
I hope you all have a very special Mothering Sunday.
