Have you ever looked back at your photos from a day trip, a holiday, a night out, basically anywhere and wondered where you were the whole time? You probably remember being there but there's no evidence of it. If you're anything like me then you were probably behind the camera taking the photograph. There have been so many occasions where i've looked back at special moments and realised I wish i'd jumped in front of the camera.
Me and my friend Alana from http://www.baby-holiday.co.uk/ have decided it's time to do something about it. Once a month we will be hosting the 'Be in the Picture linky', where we can all share any photos we feature in. Hopefully this will encourage me to get in front of the camera to make sure there are photos of me enjoying time with the girls to look back on in the future. I'm also vowing to make sure I get more pictures with my husband and also more pictures of me alone. It's funny isn't it how we never seem to want to get pictures of ourselves alone but yet a photo creates such a lifelong memory of a moment.
You can share any photos you like as-long as you're in them. It could be one's with you with children, your partner, family, friends or simply you on your own.
You can use #BeinthePicture on your instagram photos all through the month and Alana and I will pick our favourites each week to showcase.
Every month the 'Be in the Picture' linky will be open for you to write a blog post to tell us about your favourite photos you've captured that month.
My pictures for this month are a lot fancier than what you'd normally get from me as we had a family photo shoot whilst my family were over from Australia. Donna from Sweet Whimsy Photography who we've used before came to capture us whilst on a walk around a local forest and mountain.
Since having children hubby and I very rarely get any pics alone together which is silly. It's important to remember why we got together in the first place and what our lives are like with each other aside from the kids. We're so pleased Donna captured some of us together.
This pic I love as it actually features our dog Alfie. He's a huge part of our lives so it was fab to have him in some of the shots.
Now it's time to add your pictures and posts. I'm looking forward to seeing them.
There are a couple of rules to linking up:
- Share a post with one or more photos and you have to feature in them
- Comment on both hosts posts and a couple of others - Linky's work when we share the love
- Grab our badge and add it to your post
- Use #BeinthePicture on instagram and twitter so we can like and share your posts
