Who takes pictures of you?

by mssinglemama on December 23, 2007


This is one of a handful of pictures I have of Benjamin and I together. Thanks to a mirror and my wonderful camera. I snapped it just one week after leaving my ex-husband. Benjamin was just 4 months old (isn’t he a cutie!!!). Anyway, to date I have had only a few taken of us together by an outside party.

The holidays are here and I’m actually hoping someone will snap a few pictures of us together.

Just wondering what other single moms do. I could hire a professional photographer. I could ask my friend to take pictures of us every time they come over. Which they would – I guess I just forget to ask. I don’t think about it every day and now two years later I’m like – oh crap – no pictures of us together. That sucks. Same with all of my video of Benjamin – it’s all of him and my voice behind the camera.

Merry Christmas or Holidays by the way…might not get to write again for a few days. Just remember to get lots of group shots at your family gatherings.

Gotta tell ya, we photogs love the extra work!!! If you lived here I would certainly help you out…
But another idea is get a tripod of course and a good camera that has a timer. But I’m guessing that this year you will have plenty snapped for you…

I was doing a completely irrelevant google search and this post came up and I know it's old, but I thought I'd comment anyway lol
One thing that I hated when James was young was that we never had photos together.
So to solve it, I just started using the timer on my camera and taking some myself!
It has served me well over the last 2 years!

Hi Nita,here are 3 questions you can use to help you with with your story 1) when you are upset, festtraurd, angry or disappointed what is that you consistently say .ie., your storyex: I’m too old. It’s too hard. guys only want sex. guys can’t be trusted.2) Who’s story is it really?ex: if you really look at your story you will see that it isn’t even yours. It may come from society, your parents or listening to other women.Most of us create stories based on someone else’s beliefs & experiences.ex: Use any of the above examples in #1 and you will see that although you may have experienced brief examples of each one most of them are based on the collected beliefs of the masses.3) What is a new, more empowering story that you can use insteadex: I’m too old = I am more experienced and as a result I am better prepared to be a great partner and that is what makes me stand out It’s too hard = I can learn how to make it easier on myself guys only want sex = boys only want sex, MEN are interested in having a relationship & sex I’m only going to get involved w/MEN guys can’t be trusted = there are some guys who can’t be trusted and some who can. I’m smart enough to recognize the differenceHope this helps!have an awesome day!Much Love,joe3)
