so the other day it was pouring outside, i was in workout clothes & the boys in pjs fresh outta naps so it didn't really seem like optimal shooting conditions. but i got my camera out anyway, found a good patch of light & started torturing them with my camera in their faces. they weren't in to it. i set the camera up on the windowsill, grabbed my remote & started shooting us in front of it. they thought that was hilarious. the camera shooting by itself? best trick ever.
and what came of it are these shots. i haven't taken selfies with my big camera in years & i'm so happy i did today. these pictures make me happy. i have so so so many pictures of my boys but when you look back at my last year's worth of pictures i'm in a small handful of them. and by small handful i mean you could probably count on one hand. dudes. i'm their freaking mom, i deserve to exist in these digital memories too, ya know?
even if it means setting my camera up on a windowsill & grabbing a remote, today i'm shooting through the lull & owning the selfie.
