Paper Heart Camera is having a self-portrait challenge this week.  I dismissed it as not up my alley because self-portraits give me double chins and I never have any make-up or anything on, so it would just be a close-up of nothing great.  Plus it has to be in the kitchen and God knows I never do anything worth documenting in there.  But my photographic lucky streak continued (coincidental rainbows and horseshoes were just falling in my lap), and it just so happened that a very large mirror found itself leaning against our kitchen cabinets.  When a very cute 11-month-old baby decided she would admire her reflection, I grabbed my camera to take some photos of her, then realized I could kill several birds with one stone.  So I changed persepective a bit and suddenly Em was not the focus of the photo.  We both were.

 

 

 

I'm still in my quasi-pajamas (good enough for chasing a maniac two-year-old around gymnastics class, I assure you), but there was no awkward head angle or chin multiplication.  Just me and the baby girl.

 

 

Until it was just me, the baby girl, and the attention-monger boy. 

 

 

Achieving the right angle was a little difficult balancing two, but hey, at least we're all in there.  Then Daddy needed to continue our bathroom remodel, so the mirror had to go to work.  Self-portrait photoshoot over.

 

And so this is the photo that I am submitting for this photo challenge that made me think outside my usual photography box.

 

 

Photography love... 

 

And although it isn't linked up yet, I will be submitting it also here:

 

 

 

 
"Embrace the Camera" is an awesome site that requires the mom to be in the photo, too, so that my kids have great photos of themselves with me I know I love looking at pictures of my mom when she was younger; I love having a reason to document this stage in my life as well as this stage in theirs.  I should do it more often!
