Do You Have Camera Courage? #CameraCourage

If you were to go through our 25 years of family photos… for the first 10 years or so of them you would start to notice a trend. I am nowhere to be seen. Typically it’s because I was the person taking the photos, but on the rare occasion someone tried to take a photo of me I would make a face, throw my arm in front of my face, hide behind another person next to me or turn and hide. I hated having my photo taken.

Recently I have come to the realization that my family loves me for who I am, not what I think I look like. To them, I am beautiful 100% of the time. Life is precious and short… some day they will cherish these photos (as will I).

So now I am the instigator.  I have many times begged my family to stop, smile and pretend they love being with me (don’t you love how the littles can’t hide their disdain for having to pose?).

Dove feels the same way… and they want you to Show us your Camera Courage!

When did we become camera shy? Dove® wants all women to feel beautiful in front of the camera. Find your #cameracourage, and fall in love with the camera again.
