A woman named Kaylin Maree Schimpf feels passionately about moms being photographed. So passionately that she posted an open letter on Facebook urging husbands/dads to take more pictures. She pointed out that moms are too often the ones in the family behind the camera, which means they don't get to be in the shot (unless they have a selfie stick, hey!).

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....
