I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for AVEENO. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
It can be difficult to be a parent in these times and I think social media plays a role in a lot of that. Don’t get me wrong, I love my social media outlets, channels and friends and followers, but we wouldn’t be human if we didn’t spend some time comparing our lives to what we see come across our screen.
There is so much truth to this especially when it comes to parenting. There are so many photos, posts and tweets that would seem to reflect a ‘perfect’ picture – some very staged moments. Photos, perhaps some that I have taken, where everything is staged ‘just so.’ It can be really easy to get fixated on getting that perfect photo or capuring a moment that we lose sight of those ‘unscripted’ moments. An AVEENO survey found that most parents say that those ‘unscripted’ moments are more beautiful than those that are perfectly planned. Sharing more candid, unscripted moments build authentic relationships – so AVEENO is flipping the script and creating an “UnscriptedBeauty” Movement. This is where parents are encouraged to embrace the natural beauty of a life that doesn’t always go according to plan. So, what to do my unscripted moments look like?
Twins, side by side. The bond between them is like no other.
Some of the best ways to capture those moments is to just let your children be – and capturing the things that come naturally. When I look back into my own photos, I realize that most of my favorite photos fit into that “UnscriptedBeauty” idea. The photos show them in their element – and one day, will serve as a better reminder of their childhood.
