I am rarely in pictures with my kids, or at all for that matter. Mostly because I am often serving as the photographer. Partially because like most women who fail to meet the arbitrary standard of thinness, I do not enjoy how I look in photos. I feel like images of me don't ever really capture "me." However, there are a few shots in the archives that include me and really like them. None are fancy, often they are just random shots of me, in my usual mundane "hoping to get a workout in" outfits, doing the usual thing. For whatever reason these are pictures of me that make me feel like "me."
