Being a mother myself, I do understand this feeling. Wanting to preserve hat e can of their childhood, as they slip past so quickly.
I want you to think of it another way. One day your children and grandchildren (and great-grandchildren?) will be looking for photos of YOU. they will wish that more of YOUR life had been preserved.
As mothers we put everyone before ourselves, but in the end that isn’t good for anyone. You g3t robbed of an amazing empowering experience and your family get robbed the precious memories of YOU. n addition, we will be sure that we get photos with the rest of your family (and crew) as well…. no need for mom guilt.
