Put this on your to-do list for this beautiful Sunday: GET IN THE PHOTO. I struggle to find photos of me with my kids because for so many years I've been invisible {not thin enough, hair not right, face not perfect}. This year I decided my kids needed to know that I was there. That I'm here. I'm here for their first steps, their birthdays, their school things, the everyday stuff. I'm always here and it was time to be in their photos too. So do yourself and your loved ones a favour, get in the photo. There's even a beautiful reward for doing so - the beautiful @olympus_au Pen E-PL8 which happens to take awesome selfies {all the details are on my blog via the link in my profile}. So #getinthephoto friends. Please. Don't be invisible. 😘😘😘 #sponsored Open worldwide til December. Do it everyday if you please!

  • beaandcostyleLove this @fatmumslim!
  • sahri_99Fantastic prompt! We all need reminding to do this once in a while!
  • the_farmer_and_his_wifeBefore she died of cancer last year, my friend struggled to find photos of herself to leave in memory books for her four little girls.... She was always too something or not enough of something else (or like our family the only one who actually wanted to document the event in pictures!!). Our photo albums are now full of selfies of my kids with their mums nose or hand or half my face. But it proves I was there too. Your kids won't care if you were too something or not enough of something else. Love #getinthepicture ❤️
  • haberdawomanPeople tell me that at 43 I should not be taking selfies. Truth be told I pay them no mind. Our daughters will have tons of my silly selfies to share with their children one day and I also get to be included in our every day shenanigans by doing so. It's all about capturing the moment even if the picture is not perfect.
  • darby1412I realised this a few years back, I make sure there are photos of all of us at every event now, no matter how I feel about it 😍😘
  • bakewithfrenchstyleAdorable!
  • kristelae❤️IT. What a great reminder
  • todayisyoursecondchanceIs it just on insta or fb as well @fatmumslim ?
  • fatmumslim@todayisyoursecondchance Insta or in the comments of my blog 👍🏻
  • fatmumslim@darby1412 yes! It just matters that you captured the moment!
  • fatmumslim@the_farmer_and_his_wife that made me cry and my heart hurt 😭
  • namaste_vaWe realised after my dad died that there were hardly any recent photos of him 💔 After that we make more effort on family occasions to take more photos. That said, when I go on holiday I'm so obsessed with taking tonnes of photos I hardly get any of me!
  • jdpaulinWow! Thank you for this post. I take awesome pictures of my family and have captured most of our everyday life in pictures but really, only of my two kids and my husband and me behind the camera 99% of the time. I have hated how I looked in the pictures since gaining weight after two kids so I have managed to hide behind the camera all these years. I will try to come out of hiding and take this as my inspiration to be part of my family pictures. Thank you for this wake up call. 😊
  • acasademeninasGreat idea!!!! Love this!!!
  • sz78@cindypiggott - you need to post that photo Brett just put up!
  • missmaxwellI have been thinking about this since i seen it yesterday 😣 and it was like a slap in the face a reality check. I was putting a photo book together for the kids i take care off and the fun things they are doing while in my care 🙁 with no photos of me how will they know who loved them and cared for them and help make all the fun memories in this time of their life. So from tday i am going to make an effort to get in the photo. This is me in this time of my life and they deserve the memories we are creating. I will now be setting the timmer and getting in the photo #setthetimerandgetinthephoto #selfiewiththekids #selfielife 😊 thank you 👑
  • slice_of_chaosMy 5yo requested we take a family photo because he couldn't find one and he wanted to gift it to me for my birthday... Thank goodness for cameras with timers these days haha
  • msmeowdHere it is @nannyd2011
  • reidghirlThis is so true! I have hardly any photos of me and the kids growing up 🙁 I still find it difficult to take selfies for those same reasons above @fatmumslim Life's too short to be so fixed on negativity, it's time to be positive and stop worrying about what others are thinking. I have already wasted too much time that I regret, time to look forward and not be 'invisible' Thank You for this reminder @fatmumslim 😘😘
