Let’s get honest for a minute. How often do you get out from behind the camera and get into pictures? I know this is an area I have just recently begun to work on changing.

Get Out from Behind the Camera

Get Out From Behind the Camera

I was looking through pictures one day and noticed how few I am actually in. I realized that my kids were not going to have pictures of me later in life. It was imperative that I get out from behind the camera every once in a while. My camera shyness was going to keep my kids from being able to hold onto those memories sometimes only found in photographs.

At some point there will be nothing but pictures to look back on and I will have left my children… and future legacies… with none. This upset me and I have made a valiant effort to step in front of the camera more often. And guess what? I am actually enjoying it. I love seeing my kids’ smiles when I am able to get myself into the picture as well.

Behind the Camera


Sprout, the 24-hour preschool channel, is challenging each of us, as moms, to get out from behind the camera. Jump in front of the lens and snap a picture of you and your kids… together… enjoying life. Then, make sure to follow @SproutChannel on Instagram, and upload the image with the hashtag #MomIsHere.

SproutPlus, if you upload a picture before 5/31, you can be entered to win the #MomIsHere Contest. Selected photos from the hashtag feed will appear on an electronic billboard in Times Square. Plus, ten lucky winners will be featured on Sprout and will receive a #MomIsHere prize package.

What are you waiting for? Get out there and make some happy moments with your kids!

    I love love love that picture of you and your youngest at the top! Too darn cute! I am definitely one that stays behind the camera. I think mine has to do with my weight – I hate how I look on camera. I definitely need to make a bigger effort to come out from behind the camera so my kids will have something to remember me by. This is also something hubby should read too because he hates his picture being taken.

    Oh my goodness! I couldn’t agree with you more. My grandmother and father didn’t really like pictures to be taken of them. Now, I wish I had more photos of them. That’s why I made sure I snapped a photo of myself with my mom at the beach. I knew I had to have something to remember the trip by. Please, take pictures with your children (and future grandchildren). I definitely cherish the few that I have with my dad and certainly wish I had more of them.
