Family Life

Mum writes a touching post to all dads in the family photos - to STOP

Kaylin Maree Schimpf is a mum from Texas who knows all too well what the family photo rituals are like.

It’s always the same isn’t it?

The whole family is on holiday, there’s 20 million snaps being taken, but where’s Mum?

As always, mum is the one behind the camera.

Kaylin fully understands how that role feels, and she’s calling on dads to give a little hand out.

In a Facebook post that has reached 70K people, Kaylin shares:

“When she is gone, those photos won't show your children the woman who was behind the camera.”

Kaylin encourages the dads out there to take the photos regardless of what you’re told:

“Messy hair, no make-up or a dirty old T-shirt won't matter to your children when she is gone someday.”

“What will matter is that you loved what you saw enough to take a photo, to document it, to preserve that moment in time of the woman you love,” the mum added.

Kaylin points out that mums do this job everyday for the dads in their lives, but it’s time for them to begin their part in the journey too.

Signing off the beautiful post, Kaylin shares: “Be proud, take photos of her, before kids and after.”

From now on all us mums will be doing a little posing practise a la Celine!
