BSM: Boys & Me



For Mother's Day, I took the advice offered in a recent Shutter Sisters post and took pictures of my kids...with ME!  I set up the tripod, got out the shutter remote, and told them they could press the button if they would sit with me.  No neat hair or nice clothes, just us.  Happy Mother's Day to me :)!

Lovely pics! You'll be treasuring these for years to come. That's a great idea, to get the tripod and remote out.

What a great idea. I really need more pictures of me with the kids. I have been totally remiss lately.

Jaimee said...

Those are sooo great! I need to get more pictures of me with my kiddo - I'm usually more comfortable behind the camera, but those are priceless moments that we need to capture! Great job!
