You know how I was relieved to be finishing my 366 photo-a-day project so I could concentrate on smaller, more focussed photo projects this year? Well, Lucy at Dear Beautiful has come up with a great idea that is sure to keep me really motivated in my mission to make sure I take more photos of my family together.
The idea behind the ‘Me and Mine’ project is to take and share one photo of your family each month. There is a Linky at the bottom of this post if you would like to join us in sharing a family photo!
Here is my January shot – of course it had to be a snow photo!
As you can see, I still haven’t learnt to stop pointing the control at the camera like it’s the TV remote. But in my defence the silly thing wasn’t firing (maybe buying the cheapest remote wasn’t the way to go?), I’d taken my glasses off for this shot and I literally couldn’t see a thing, let alone whether the sensor was activated or not. I’d set up the shot so we’d be standing further back, so the awkward crouching pose is also thanks to the remote not doing its job properly!
In amongst all of this, Arlo was throwing the biggest strop of his life – I have no idea how we managed to come away with a smile in the one attempt that actually triggered the shutter. Two seconds before this moment (and the whole journey home afterwards), he was in tears. And I wonder why Sam groans every time I announce grand plans for a family photoshoot.
There are a whole host of bloggers helping to get this project going in its first month (as illustrated in the picture below). I’m sending you onto Charlotte at The Crumby Mummy, and if you are interested in seeing all of our family photos, from Charlotte’s blog you will be able to click on a link to the next blog, and so on, until you’ve read all the posts. And the linky will be at the bottom of all posts so it’s really easy to join us if you have a family shot you would like to share.
I’ve scheduled this post in advance and so I haven’t yet seen anyone elses photos. I can’t wait to read all the blog posts!
