Me and Mine – June

dear beautiful

I can’t believe that another month has gone past since the last Me and Mine, which I snapped right at the very last moment. Continuing the theme. this month’s picture has been taken this morning. Fortunately better camera and better light than the last effort, but neither Thomas nor Ian had much patience for the endeavour today!

But here we are, camped out in our front room playing with Thomas’s current favourite toy as our garden is currently a demolition zone!


And a couple of the outakes:

    Mine was taken very last minute this month. Lovely photos! Love how happy your little one looks in the middle picture! x

      He doesn’t look so happy in the final one! He was looking at the television (next to the camera) in the top one. Still can’t decide if I prefer the middle one!

    great photos, I really like the middle one. No wonder you couldn’t resist squidging those lovely cheeks

    • Caro / Jun 30 2013

      Thanks! He probably doesn’t look impressed because I do it so much! Those cheeks are very irresistible!

    It’s always nice to see the outtakes! Just shows how much work we have to put in to get that lovely picture 🙂

    • Caro / Jun 30 2013

      Yes, I think I took about 15 pictures in total! Thank goodness for digital though – imagine when we had to pay to process all those outakes!

    Awwww, I love the kissy one and how his gorgeous face looks all squished. So cute. x

    • Caro / Jun 30 2013

      Thank you! He is very squishable!

    Ahhh we constantly have a train track out in one of our rooms.
    I really like how relaxed these photos are. The kissing one is so cute x

    • Caro / Jun 30 2013

      Thanks! The train track is definitely number one for now, and I must admit to not always bothering to put it away at the moment!

    Even the outtakes are great!

    • Caro / Jun 30 2013

      I did have a few awful outakes too though, including the first couple where I fluffed the settings and got them totally out of focus! Getting a toddler to look at the camera is hard though 🙂

    They’re lovely photos – both the ‘official’ one and the out takes – and I agree thank goodness for digital photography, I have so many out takes trying to get both girls looking even vaguely in the right direction!

    • Caro / Jul 1 2013

      Thank you! The downside of digital is of course just the sheer number of images we end up with!

  8. Katie @mummydaddyme / Jul 2 2013

    These are gorgeous photos, I like them all and I can’t believe how many photos I take because they are digital- I think I would take far less if you had to develop all the films! x

    • Caro / Jul 3 2013

      Thank you! I would probably take far less too, but miss out on capturing some lovely moments.

    What a good idea for a photo! And I totally hear you on the general impatience – there’s always at least one person I have to force into taking our photo each month, haha. Arlo is obsessed with his train track, may have to borrow your idea and take a photo of us with his track when Rory is a bit older ; )
