Have you ever felt like you weren’t good enough? Well I sure as heck have. In all honesty, I wasn’t even supposed to be the mom featured on our Mother’s Day promotion.
The truth is I had a mom already booked who I felt would be a much better “fit” than me. We were set to take photographs of she and her two beautiful daughters later this week, but I wanted to do some test photos for the set before she came.
So how did I end up in the photos? The answer is simple —my husband and partner, Pedro. He said, “Don’t you want to get in some shots too?”. Each time he asked I told him no, slightly considering the thought more and more each time until I finally cracked. He suggested I wear one of our studio gowns. Then I pulled my hair up into the same hairstyle I’ve had a thousand times, and threw on some chapstick.
Seriously. That’s all that happened. So why was it so hard? I’m assuming the same reason moms all around the world have camera rolls of more than 1000 photos of their children, and only 20 of the photos include themselves. The number of snapshots of both them and their children pictured together is probably less than 10% of their camera roll. It’s hard because we’re not thinking of ourselves. It’s hard because we don’t think we’re perfect. Our hair isn’t right. We don’t have makeup on. What if we don’t look good?
Girlfriend guess what? These are really just figments of our fears of what beauty means to us when all along strong women and mothers like you have been creating our own standard of beauty. When my children look back on photos of me, I’m almost certain they won’t be thinking of those small details we nitpick and use as excuses everyday. They’ll simply reply, “This is Mama. Oh, and that’s me!”
