Embrace The Camera

Embrace The Camera is a concept I was introduced to by Emily over at The Anderson Crew.  It's about getting in the picture with your loved ones, not just hiding behind the camera.  Capturing memories, with you in them.  I'm sure we all know what it's like to look back through the photos from an event and realize we weren't in a single one.  I know I take a ton of pictures of my kids... at home, at the zoo, at birthday parties, anywhere, any time!  But I forget to hop into view myself.  I want my kids to grow up and have pictures of ALL of us to look at and bring back childhood memories, big and small.  So I am making an effort to Embrace The Camera!

Last week, Emily and her friend Sarah invited us to Embrace The Camera every day that week.  Each day had a prompt that you could follow, but the important part was just that you made an effort to get in the picture each day.  I was able to get it done three days, and these are my photos.


Making Memories



  1. I was just thinking about that, how I'm not in a single picture I took this weekend haha. It's just so hard to remember to jump in the frame, especially when it requires asking someone else to take the photo! I try to make sure we get family photos occasionally, though.

  2. I totally know what you mean! I take all the pictures so it's either my kids or my kids & husband (if he lets me...) But he rarely takes pics so I'm not in a lot of them! This is a neat prompt, I might try it :)


I love, love, love hearing from you! So what's up? :)
