  • “But I haven’t showered and I need to freshen up,” words even my confident mama said when I told her I really wanted a few photos of her before she left. I told her, “You are beautiful, Mom. They aren’t for you anyway, they are for us to treasure.” I pulled out my camera and captured the giggles and dang it, my mom GLOWS. Does anyone else remember those 1990’s posed family portraits where you all wear matching white button down shirts or denim (or both) — likely for the first and last time? You nervously sit in a stuffy studio with weird backdrops and stools and you’re told told to tilt your chin down and say “pickles” as a person you just met snaps the shutter and you pray you get just ONE good one. Yes, I LOVE and cherish those portraits (mostly because they are hilarious) but I hope when Coco grows up she sees moments not poses and remembers the raw joy she experienced doing life with her favorite people — even if their hair is dirty. Take the photo, stop hiding, document the moments, don’t wait to feel “ready” for it. It’s not for you, anyway. ✨ Tag your loved ones below (or is it you? 🧐)who always dodge photos! 👇🏼 This is for them.

My Dad died when I was only one and he refused to get in front of the camera so I hardly have any photos to remember him by. So your suggestion is so true! Take the damn photos!

Such a precious photo, and I agree, she is lovely! 💕

@leahjsari Instagram Profile 30 July, 2020

Yes yes yes 👏👏 I hate stiff posed photos! Constantly trying to get those candid real photos among a world of fake people and fake moments.
