I have always stayed on the taking end of the photos to avoid having to see myself in print (huge wake up call for me last year!). But, after dropping nearly 50 pounds and learning to love myself more, I decided I needed to start being in the photos, too. My mom was so good at our family having nice portraits done each year and she was in them…whether she was in the middle of chemo or struggling with her weight. I love those pictures and they’ve definitely taught me that I need to do the same for our family.
Another dear heart mom friend of mine, Shannon, and I had the awesome idea to swap services so we could finally get some family pics with ourselves in them. Shannon also has a photography love so we just met with our families and started clicking! It was so fun and we both agreed that we will be doing it again in the spring!
Here’s a few of my many favorites! Thank you, sweet friend, for these very special moments!
