Mums In The Picture {Flashback Friday}

August 9, 2013
A quick Flashback Friday inspired by Dear Beautiful’s lovely post, Being In The Memories. Far too often Mums are left out the photos, usually because they are the ones taking them or they aren’t feeling quite confident enough to be captured on film. However, I’ve managed to hunt down a couple that are very special to me. I happen to think my Mum looks pretty great in this photo (she might disagree) and it is one of my favourites of the two of us. Not the best photos in the world; just happy Mummies and happy children. 
My Mum and Me (8 months) 1985                                 Me and Lucas (8 months) 2012

    Awww, I’m glad my post inspired you to dig out these gems. It’s funny isn’t it? You think your mum looks great (I agree) and that’s all you see as children, our amazing parents. But as parents we get hung up on not wanting to be in the photo.
    It’s lovely to see a comparison shot too. I might have to dig out some baby photos of me and see what we have of the kiddos at similar ages. x

      I actually spoke to my Mum today and she said she didn’t like how she looked in the photo…I couldn’t believe it!! Guess we are all the same, just proves your point really. I would love to see baby photos of you x
