Me & My Challenges

I recently started my styling journal. I really enjoy it especially the feedbacks I get (thank you!!), but the challenge I have is taking photography of myself. I have asked both of my girls, 5-year-old and 2-year-old to take my photos. It’s like pulling my teeth. First of all, my 5-year-old is not available in the morning as she goes to school. Second of all, their concentration simply does not last. When I ask them to take photos, it’s not a complete free style all the way which makes it hard for them probably. It’s not like I’m asking something difficult. Sometimes they are not in the mood. Sometimes they don’t get it. All I am asking them is to take photos that “I’m in”. I’m serious. They have taken so many pictures of the floor in front of my feet, background above my head or the wall next to me.
So, the pictures above were taken by my camera using the self-timer. When I was taking my own photos, I was saying to myself in my head “Gosh, this is so silly and I must look ridiculous.”
Oh well. What can I do? If you have any suggestions (not hiring a photographer, please, since I can’t afford it!), I’d love to hear.
My daughter loves these sandals. My first child loved and wore them 4 years ago and then now my second child wears them. They both loved them. I found them at Target 4 years ago and I regret that I did not pick up a pair of these for every single size available. I actually hid the pair of these sandals (didn’t have the guts to throw them out) and my second child found them this morning!! How did she do that?
