Me and Mine {October}

 

Hayley from Home blog

I am so pleased that we have finally managed a picture of the five of us and a little ashamed that it has taken nearly ten months! Still, we’ve done it now and I’m making a commitment to get a new one every month and join in with Me and Mine so next year I will be able to look back on a year’s worth or family photographs. If you haven’t heard of Me and Mine please go and have a look at the lovely Dear Beautiful’s blog; the idea is to capture a family portrait and focus on capturing your growing family each month, whatever the photograph.

This one was taken a few weeks ago on our trip to the pumpkin patch. I realised I could effectively trap all three children in the wheelbarrow so we could get the photo and the boys had the most fun sat there playing with the straw. I am certain we will never get one when all three boys are still or looking at the camera but I’m really happy with this one. It was such a great day and it felt like we had turned a bit of a corner with our family trips out; it is getting easier! I think Autumn is a favourite season for all of us so it seems perfect to start our me and mine journey amongst pumpkins in October.

I’m looking forward to capturing more each month and will gladly take any of your tips for getting a family photo!

  1. What a GORGEOUS pic!! Aaah Hayley — I can’t believe how big the twins are looking already! It seems like 5 minutes since you tweeted that they’d arrived! Such a beautiful family! I love the backdrop too!! Particularly topical today!! X

  2. Aww, this is an adorable picture! We’ve been doing Me & Mine since January and I’m so glad I decided to join in, even though some months it does seem very hard to find time to take a photo (and I’ve only got to try and get one boy in mine!)

  3. it’s a gorgeous photo – I love your plan for corralling the little ones in the wheelbarrow, it works a treat! my photos usually have at least one person looking in the wrong direction so I’m probably the wrong person to ask for tips but i have had some luck with giving Kitty the remote trigger and also having everyone look at one person, usually Elma or Pip – welcome to the very addictive world of Me and Mine!
