Anyone who knows me knows that I like being behind the camera NOT in front of it! However when I took the MiaMouse to Disney World last September for some girl time, we pre-purchased the PhotoPass CD and I ended up getting my picture taken too. yay.
As a former professional portrait photographer, I know how important it is to make sure you’re photographed as often as you do the photography but as a mom, I know that’s nearly impossible. Plus, let’s face it… not many women are happy with the way they look. They want to lose x pounds, color their roots, change clothes, etc. and that’s all before the shutter clicks.
At Disney World, vanity is left behind. I’m a hot, sweaty, usually sunburned mess with no makeup and always wearing a plain t-shirt and shorts so there’s no chance I’m going to be scouted by any model agencies. Not to mention the amount of weight I had to lose at the time sat me firmly in the Pooh-sized camp! But this time, I conceded it was time to get at least a few shots of me too.
And you know what? I’m glad I did.
