A widow, who lost her husband in a plane crash, says body-image issues stopped her from posing in photos with her husband before he died.
Michelle Steinke-Baumgard posted a 2008 photo of herself and her baby son on Facebook – alongside a warning for others to get in the frame.
“One of my biggest regrets is that I wasn’t in many photos. My self-hate and loathing kept me from taking photos of my babies and photos with the man I loved,” she said.
Her husband, Mitchel, was killed in October 2009, a year after the photo was taken – the pair’s son was only a year old and their daughter was three-years-old.
“The day he died, all I cared about was the memories we made, the trips we took and the photos of our whole family,” she said on Facebook.
