The trouble with trying to organise a family photo is that you’re usually restricted to weekends. And weekends are busy.
This month, we only had one day, one opportunity all month, to take our Me and Mine photo. No wonder we don’t have that many photos of us together, I know that if it wasn’t for this project, it would have been another month go by without a photo of the four of us.
I’m a bit disappointed that it’s yet another shot taken in our bedroom. I really wanted to aim for a different, more natural scene this time. But one weekend, one opportunity…and of course it was raining. Plus, this was probably the best option considering the limited ‘posing’ options for a 4 week old.
The end of June means half a year of monthly family photos. As we’re at the half way point, I’ve put our six photos into a collage.
Seeing them together makes me really glad that this project has provided the motivation to get some photos of our family – they will be treasured in years to come. It has also made me determined to get a bit more variety in the photos and try and get some more outdoor shots in the months to come.
This month, I’m sending you on to Capture By Lucy. Lucy has the most incredible talent for food and product photography – quite where she gets the time to style her images so beautifully on top of working, parenting, and everything else… I just don’t know!
