Me and Mine: February

Our plans for our Me and Mine photos were nearly scuppoured this month. I utterly failed to capture a single photograph with all four of us together in Norway which was SUCH a wasted opportunity! Just goes to show that family photos don't happen without planning! And then David has been bed bound this week with the most awful bug, and I just knew no amount of persuasion would result in him posing for the camera.

But thankfully, health was restored yesterday, and so a VERY last minute photoshoot was whipped together as the sun was setting, and the light was fading, and Mama grabbed a wailing girl under one arm, and her camera under the other. And as anyone knows, fading light and wailing girls do NOT make for the best photo shoots.

But thankfully Papa came to the rescue with the guitar... if there's one thing that is BOUND to make our girls smile... its music...


One under-the-weather Papa, two tired girls, and a Mama with an ever-growing bump ended up having a whale of a time having a merry little singsong!


... and the singalong soon turned into a danceathon...


...with hilarious consequences...


 A classic "Me and Mine" for February!

  2. Lovely and special moments ... I love taking pictures of my lovely men but I'm not keen on being in the pictures. I think I'm going to make a monthly allowance so that we can add more special moments to our family memories. Thanks so much for sharing your moment and pictures, so lovely to read and see. #meandmine

  8. Wow what a wonderful set! You would never know this was last minute! I felt I failed on ours this month, we had lots of family times just never seemed to make time for a photo. So ours was on the 27th, at the school car park in the car! Maybe not one to frame but I guess it's ok that life gets so busy sometimes. And I have lots of lovely ones of what February was full of! We have a whole weekend of nothing in March so I am going to take us all to a lovely park and have a mini shoot! xxx

  9. Love these photos. The guitar prop is such a cool idea. I love the way they look like snippets of a timelapse video when you scroll through the post quickly. x
