As a mom and family photographer, I've witnessed countless moments of joy, love, and connection through my lens. However, there's a recurring request that echoes in the background of almost every session: "Can you just Photoshop me a little thinner and a little younger?" It's not about perpetuating gender roles; it's about acknowledging the universal insecurities we all share.
Let's be clear – I won't Photoshop you to be less than you are. Human nature leads us to find flaws in ourselves, but it's essential to recognize that your worth extends far beyond physical appearance. Your family loves you just as you are, with every soft curve, gray hair, and laugh line.
As the mom, you are the keystone of your family – the planner, scheduler, and the magic behind every special memory. Often, you're the one behind the scenes, capturing precious moments for everyone else. But here's my New Year's resolution for you: get in front of the lens.
I understand the concerns about appearance, but your family sees you through a lens of love that transcends superficial details. During our sessions, I'll coach you into flattering poses and use lighting that highlights your natural beauty. I'll touch up minor imperfections – the temporary blemish, the fading bruise – but I refuse to alter your essence.
Taking "Proof of Mom" photos isn't about the size of your pants or the smoothness of your skin. It's about immortalizing your presence, capturing the magic you bring to every moment. In the future, your family won't remember the superficial details of your appearance; they'll remember the warmth of your giant smile, the sound of your laughter, the way you rubbed their back to reassure them, and the love radiating from your eyes.
So, this year, step in front of the lens. Let me preserve not just the moments you create for your family but the moments where they see you – the real you. In 20 years, the size of your jeans won't matter, but the love and joy in those photographs will be timeless. Embrace the lens, and let your family cherish the beautiful essence of your being for generations to come.
