Are you a picture taker?  Or are you usually the ones in the pictures?

Im usually the one behind the Camera,  my husband takes horrible pictures, so I am usually the one who takes them.

I dont really take many pictures except of my  daughter and granddaughter.  I used to hate having my picture taken.  I still hate it, but I no longer run from the camera or refuse to let people take them.  After my father died, I realized we only had a few pictures because he would never let us take his picture.  How I wish we had more.  I now let my daughter take all she wants, because I know someday they will be a cherished memory for her.

A couple of days ago a friend said something about being the picture-taking nana.  Most pictures I have are of the kids and grandkids.

My Dad did not like having his picture taken he would turn so that you got a pic of his back.  When the grandkids started arriving,  then it wasn't a problem.  He would sit and let us take pictures as long as one of them was with him.

I am not at all photogenic so I prefer to take the pictures rather than be in pictures.

I am almost always the one behind the camera and since I am single/solo and have an empty nest, most of my pics are of the cats.  LOL.  I, too, think I take horrid pictures but still allow others to take pics of me.  :o)  The photo I'm using for my avatar here is probably the best pic I've ever had taken of me.

I am the picture taker. I am the one that we just go out to take pictures, like the first snow & whatnot. Though my husband will grab the camera to make sure I am in some shots. I make sure to get in with self timer on our family pictures at Christmas, etc. When Jonathan comes home on leave, whenever that is, we will make sure to get more group shots. Every chance we get we do.

I am the picture taker, but Lib takes selfies and will sneak me in them. Now I let her do it. I am not  a great picture taker, hate my pics but I am the only mom she has and loves me so if she wants my pic with her then I do. She is 16 and her wanting me in them is a big deal. Lol

I prefer to take them because I don't want to be in them.
