Truly Happy.....

It is not very often that I find myself in front of the camera.  This is something that I really need to rectify.  Besides being the one who loves to take the pictures, I shy away from the camera because I do not always like what I see when I look at myself.  I know, super lame and horribly vain, but weight plays a lot of tricks on the self-esteem and I am not immune.  HOWEVER, I know how important it is that I put more of myself in my work because I am documenting our lives for my children who will probably be sad one day when they are older and cannot find any pictures of their mom.  So during a little photo shoot with my youngest, I handed my beloved camera over to my son and had him snap away. 

And I loved the finished result!  As I posed with Allora in front of the camera, I pushed aside all anxities and came up with some shots that really captured me and how I felt at that moment--truly happy.  I have to do this more often.

Happy Scrapping!
