What if I don’t like pictures of myself? | Cincinnati + Dayton Documentary Style Family Photographer

If you haven’t had family pictures taken in the past year, promise me that you’ll find someone to take them for you.

It doesn’t matter who takes them or how or where.

Whether you ask a friend, whether you use the timer on your phone’s camera, whether you hire a professional, you need to do it. And you need to do it now.

We have no guarantees in life, but you know what having family photos proves? That you were here, you were together, and you were happy.

I can already hear you, friend.

“But, but, Christi, I need to lose 20 pounds first.”

NO, YOU DON’T. Do your kids care about your extra weight? No. I promise you, they don’t.

They care about the way you hold them on your lap, the way you smile at them, the way you show them every day how much you love them. Take my word for it. Don’t wait.

(I get you, though. I would rather stab my eyeballs than be in front of the camera.)

We’ll call this another installment of #preachingtomyself. 😉

P.S. Want to know more about what a photo session with me is like? My documentary-style way of capturing your family makes it easy. All you have to do is be yourself and carry on as you typically would with your family. And I’ll take care of the rest.

But don’t take my word for it. TAKE THEIRS.
