About once a year, my friend Ashley and I decide to do a week long challenge where we encourage YOU to embrace the camera. I started ETC years ago (when I actually blogged), when I noticed that I didn't have lots of photos of my mom. She was ALWAYS the one to hide behind the camera for whatever silly reason she had. She didn't think she looked good, her outfit didn't match, hair was out of place, whatever it was---it was dumb. Now that she's gone, I treasure the few photos I do have with her...but I'm always longing for more.
So, I became determined to get in more photos with my kids, and decided to start challenging others to do the same.
So, this week over on Instagram (and heck, I might even post over here too)...we will be sharing photos where we decide to be IN them, not just taking them.
Ashley posted a few good tips on her blog, here is just an excerpt:
