I am missing the days when my kids don't run away from me the very moment I have a camera (smartphone, especially) in my hands. Those days, as you can see, they even entertain me with funny faces.
I have always tried to warn my friends who keep posting their children's pictures on Facebook that one day, maybe just boys, they don't want their pictures all over the Internet. They have less of a reaction when I am using my not-connected-to-the-internet snap-and-go camera, knowing that chances of it ending up on Facebook is far less as compared to when I am using my smartphone.
But cameras don't have filters, my sons. T.T e.g. like the picture above. No filter and look like shit. hahaha
I love taking pictures because it's a keepsake of memories like this that I will one day want to look back on. A reminder of how far I have come as a mother and our relationship.
I have assured them that whatever I capture that ends up on Facebook, I will not tag them. Especially taken with the tiny compact offline camera of mine.
So, selfie away and don't let other people judge you or call you narcissistic. It is not. It is a way to keep memories together, one picture at a time.
Snap away, folks,
