Self Portraits of Motherhood {Honest Motherhood, Rhode Island Photographer}

August 17, 2015  •  4 Comments

I recently became very captivated by the self portraits shared by mothers on the Self Portraits of Motherhood facebook page.  My interest in beautiful photography was renewed when I was pregnant with my son as a way to document all of the crazy, heartwarming and memorable times to come.  I have found that I am hardly *in* any photos with my kids though (my mother was also handy with a camera as a hobbiest, so I also remember very few photos of her also - so a familiar problem for mothers who love photography).  I just want my children to know that I was there with them when they get older, maybe to look a photo and remark on how young I looked 'back then'.
 

My second self portrait that I shared with the page was my youngest daughter playing with my mouth :)  I just noticed the juxtaposition of the formal portraits of my three kids with the organic moment.  It seemed fitting for the current theme on the page of {Honest Motherhood}.
 

Photographed with a Nikon D600, Tamron 24-70, f/2.8, handheld in front of me and Alexandra using live view focus.  I hope to participating in the monthly themes more frequently and sharing them on my blog!  Thanks for visiting today, A
