The original post was written by 'Kaylin' but it's gone viral again after being reposted by a mum called Destiny Rogers.
The heartfelt post urges dads to get snapping, regardless of whether mum protests, because capturing these memories will be so important in years to come.
'Dear men.... take the photo...
It doesn't matter what she looks like, or if she tells you no, take the photo. You may not think about it often, or at all honestly. But how many photos does she capture of you, of your family and of your life you've built. But when she is gone, those photos won't show your children the women who was behind the camera.
Take the photo. 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. No woman wants to look back at a lifetime of selfies. Do what she does for you every day, and snap a few moments in time.
Be proud. Take photos of her. Before kids and after.
Just take the photo....
I hear it so often from mums, "o no I just want photos of the kids, I look terrible". And trust me with my battle with post birth health issues I totally understand that us mums do no want a picture of ourselves plastered big all over a billboard, but in every photo I have of me and my Sophie all I can see is the love, the moment and how lucky I am to have her in my life, sure I have bat wings that will help me fly one day but I know that she wont see that in years to come she will just see her mummy (ok crying now!!) and for that reason I say to every mother who has a session with me.... " I tell you what, lets just take the shot because I know your little one will want it when they are grown, and you know if you don't like it we can delete it or you can just leave it on the USB, better to take the opportunity then regret it later"
So what I am saying is yes Dads take more photos of mum with baby, but girls we have to do our part and let them take the photo, you are beautiful in your child's eye, let them hold that feeling even after you are gone, with a photo. I bet we all wish or truest a photo of our mums!
Here a a few of my favorite "with my mummy" portraits I have taken in Edinburgh
