Why aren’t you in the photo?

1 January 1970

Are you part of the invisible mom club? Do you feel like you aren’t part of your own story?

Always around, but hardly ever seen? Unless you take things into your own hands and take a selfie of course. The thing about selfies though, is that they aren’t the same. The magic of the moment can feel broken when you have to insert yourself into it … Well the first thing you need to know is that you aren’t alone. Moms everywhere have the exact same experience.

“I shall try to be more confident in my own skin and feel more comfortable asking people to take a photo for me and be satisfied with whatever picture result comes out like.”

Says a Once Upon Mom

We can all agree that this is a problem. And although the solution might not be easy. There is a solution. Ask. Ask the people around you, to take your photo. It may feel a little awkward at first, but after a while, the people around you will get used to it and might even start taking spontaneous photos without you having to ask.
