This is a lovely article. As my friends will know (all too well) I don’t really have a problem ‘staying in the picture’. Even though I don’t really love the pictures of myself.
But there aren’t many photos of me when I was pregnant because I thought I looked too fat, or from those first few weeks when my little scrunchey came into the world, again because I thought I looked too fat. And I wish there were. I learned my lesson from that regret – now I’m always in the fricking picture, no matter what I think I look like!
I want to have photos of me and my kids, and me and my husband, so now I’m always asking my husband to take some. And of course the odd selfie with a toddler always goes down well!
