Me and Mine – March


I was late to the Me and Mine party in January. And in February I failed to take and share a family portrait at all. But this month, we have progress: I have the pictures, and I’m on time!

As always, however, things did not go entirely to plan. I actually had a completely different set of shots in mind to share, but once again (this also happened in January) the memory card on which they are residing is not in my possession. And as is often the case with our family group shots, we have many of the same scene each one containing one or two good elements. But getting everyone looking at the camera with an appropriate facial expression in the one frame? It appears to be nigh on impossible for me and mine!

Here are some alternatives, all taken by my father-in-law:




(Ian is probably going to kill me for sharing this last one, if not some of the others!)

Despite my issues with actually getting family photos (or perhaps because of those issues) I’m still really liking the idea of participating in this project, and I’m loving the photos others are. I’m  determined that I will get better at capturing all of us together!

    Ahhh, welcome!!! It’s such a lovely project, we now really look forward to getting our photo each month.
    It’s definitely a challenge getting a good one of everyone, it seems like somebody always spoils it somehow. I’ve just accepted that now, with a reluctant hubby, an active toddler and a baby who doesn’t get it I don’t stand a chance really.

      Thank you! I suppose these difficulties are what makes these photos such lovely keepsakes though – they show personalities exactly as they were at the time the pictures were taken!

    Oh so lovely! I love the giggles! What great family pictures!

      Thank you!

    Lovely to find your blog! I have the same problem trying to photograph the 3 of us. Lovely photos. I think my favourite is the second to last one! :0)

      Thank you. I struggled to work out which was my favourite as I like them all in their own way – even the bottom one. I love Thomas’s pointy finger as that is so “him”, but sadly caught my husband in mid-blink!

    These are fab photos! I can just imagine him giggling in the middle of the two of you.
    I’m glad you were able to take part again x

      Thanks Lauren. He’s an exceptionally giggly boy, although it’s often one extreme or the other!

  5. I think the second one is my favourite, and what a brilliant shirt Thomas is wearing!

    • Caro / Apr 2 2013

      The shirt is from good old H&M. I love it too!
