Day 16: Self Portrait

I hate pictures of myself. I am always the one behind the camera, rarely in front of it. There is something comforting behind the lens, being the one composing rather than being a part of the composition. I enjoy the creative act of taking pictures, putting a frame around my world in an attempt to understand a moment, a relationship.

So, since yesterday's assignment had me using the self-timing function on my camera to capture a kiss with my husband (I'm still telling him the photo didn't turn out, so shhhhh!), while my two year old napped, my youngest son and I played with the self timer on the camera to capture a picture of us together. This is my self portrait, cropped tight because I am not entirely comfortable with all of me in the frame, doing what I love - loving my kids.

I am a mom.

This is me.
