This photo is a rare item.  How rare?  There are less than ten photos of my son and I in existence.

Why is that?

Mostly because I am usually the one behind the camera.  My husband is more photogenic than me, and more comfortable in front of the camera. So I take lots of pictures of my boy and his dad.

But then I think about how my son might infer, from the lack of pictures, that I didn't want to be around him, or that I didn't love him. Nothing could be further from the truth.


  1. We start off early watching television and then envisioning our American dream. As a child, we play with our babies, doll houses, and writing in our diaries. We start at the tender age of 4 or 5 looking for our prince charming to marry. Over time, we replace our crushes of princes and other Disney characters with real boys. Sometimes it is the boy that sits next to you in class or a movie star. Either way, it is getting you ready for that all important task called LOVE.........


  2. What a cute picture and I don't think I've seen any of you two so I'm happy to have a face for your names. You are, too, photogenic! Zane's a doll! Take more.

  3. What a great picture. I am also the one behind the camera most days. Funny though, a really good friend of mine was looking for pictures of her and her mom for her mother's funeral a few years back and she suddenly realized something.... she had been everywhere... Germany, FL, CA, the Vineyard.... and yet she hadn't been.

    She jumps in front of the camera now.

  4. I admit to the outstretched arm, photo of ourselves move. I love this shot of you too...such happy faces!

  5. I love that picture! There aren't to many pictures of me and my kids, I am usually the one who is behind the camera also.
