Me and Mine – Family Portrait Project – September

Me and Mine – Family Portrait Project – September

After Shayla’s birthday party at the weekend I realised that I’d not been able to capture the Siblings photograph that I wanted for next month of all the children on the bouncy castle together.  The bouncy castle was collected about half an hour after the party  was supposed to finish, but there were still children on it when it was collected.  I managed to catch some pictures of my little ones after the party just sat playing together.  It then dawned on me that we didn’t have our ‘Me and Mine’ picture for this month end yet.  I handed the DSLR to my Father-in-Law who snapped a few for us.

So they’re not the most professional photographs (no offense to James’ Dad), there wasn’t much planning behind them.  It proved almost impossible to capture us all looking at the camera, especially as Nanny was sat next to Grandad snapping too, but they sum us up and the aftermath of Shayla’s party perfectly.  My little pirate and princesses all winding down from a lovely day.

I know that our portrait offerings will improve as we start to put more planning into them (oh yeah, and actually execute said plans).

But for now, this is ‘Me and Mine’ in September.

  1. Aww they’re lovely relaxed photos – and with that many little ones getting everyone looking at the camera is a big ask – I’ve given up and I’ve not got so many!!

    1. Lol, it helps that the girls usually like posing for pictures, so that’s half the battle, then I guess it’s just the babies, Judah is the hardest one, I’ve noticed my photos of him are less and less recently haha 🙂

  2. The best laid plans often go wrong when it comes to taking photos at birthday parties I find… last years I put Katie from Mummy Daddy Me in charge of getting photos at my daughters first birthday party, because I knew I’d be too busy. But I think it’s lovely that you still managed to get your photo on that special day, and that the girls are all dressed up. x
