As those who are usually holding the camera, we are all too aware of how easy it is to take photographs of the rest of your family, but not appear in many yourself. We know that when they are older, and flick back through the old photographs, they will want to see us there too! So we both make a conscious effort to put ourselves on the other side of the lens – setting the camera on timer and running to get in the frame before it clicks has become a whole art form in itself, and often creates plenty of giggles in the process! It’s so important to exist in those memories for the future!
This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 6th March, and once again we are celebrating motherhood by challenging you to exist in photographs for your children by taking a Mothers Day selfie!
The winner will receive a place on our March 11th Photography Basics Workshop, worth £120. If you’ve already attended the workshop but still want to take part, you’re free to gift the prize to a friend if you win!
How to enter
Take a photograph of yourself with your child(ren) between Tuesday 1st and Sunday 6th March – then post it to our facebook wall, or share it on Instagram marked with the hashtag #ahappycaptureexist2016 and nominate and tag two friends to do the same.
We’re not looking for technical perfection, but more for an emotional connection – you can be as creative or simple as you like and use your DSLR, phone camera or anything in between! We’ll choose our favourite entry and post it on our blog on Monday, 7 March.
The winner will receive a place on our March 11th Photography Basics Workshop, worth £120.
