Self Portraits with my Kids

Equal to my passion to decorate with portraits is my desire for moms to get out from behind the camera and to be in pictures with their kids.  I wrote an extensive blog post over at The Idea Room, so go check it out.  In the next week, we are having a link up party to share our creative efforts to have pictures taken of us alone or with our kids. 

Here are 3 self portraits I took with my family:

This first one, the kids were gathered on the laps of myself and my husband as he read through a book we gave him for Father’s Day.  I had to jump up and get my camera when I saw our reflection in the glass of the fireplace.  My baby isn’t in it, and I am barely seen (camera in front of my face) but I have a teal blue shirt on.

This next one was my effort to try for a “Got Milk” ad.  My baby also not present, and I wish I didn’t have my hair slicked back after a shower, but oh well. 
I took the kids to downtown Austin to check out a local cupcake shot, polkadots.  The cupcakes were delicious and the atmosphere was charming. 
Now, go to The Idea Room and share your self portraits from your blog, or email them to me and I will include them.  Contest and Giveaway ends Wednesday June 30th at noon.
