    Default Are you ever in photos or always the photographer?

    Just wondering if others are in photos. I don't really like having photos taken anyway.. Unless it is with my camera and I can keep or delete them but I have noticed a lot lately that DH never takes my photo with the kids. I am always the one taking photos. I snap photos a lot through the day and when I see them all sitting together I try to get a quick snap before they all move (it never lasts long) I take photos myself with the kids (maybe I should get a selfie stick so I can be in more photos) but I just noticed that he never thinks to take my photo. If I didn't take the photos with the kids they would never know what I looked like. Anyone else find they are always the photographer too?

    Me. Dh never takes a photo unless i ask him to. And then he takes so long to do it the kids end up moving.

    He either gets us all blurt, chops someones head out of the frame etc.

    Hopeless

    Oh yes, me too.
    I always the photographer and am hardly actually IN any photos at all.

    Makes me wonder actually if I ever went missing what photo would they use on my "Have you seen Biscotti?" posters

    Me, I'm never in photos always the photographer.

    I really need to find a way to encourage DP to get more photos. But it's the same at family events. Everyone thinks because I am a photographer I'm automatically happy to be the photo taker for the day and not in them.

    Need to set a challenge to be in more
    Photos with everyone else

    Always the photographer and I hate it! I don't want to ask ppl/DH to take pics of me so I go without! It sux oh and when I do ask DH to take one its a shocking pic I mean have you no artistic edge at all? I am not creative at all but know how to take a photo nicely. He takes it from far doesn't zoom or use any feature possible 😞 it's either blurry or just weird !!!!!

    Wow that was a bit of a vent wasn't it hahah 😜 sorry DH!

    Yep. DH just never seems to think to do it. He's not a fan of having his own photo taken, and doesn't seem to comprehend that not everyone feels that way.

    I want to document it all- the good, the bad and the ugly! (Although I do reserve the right to delete anything truly hideous...)

    I am never in pics, I'm always taking them. It makes me sad that no one wants me in pics
