Me and Mine Project - January 2017

I can't believe how quickly Christmas and New Year seemed to go. It literally whizzed by. All of my immediate family that live in Australia came back to the UK for a 3 week holiday and landed on the 23rd December so we had a busy but fab 3 weeks.

We were so busy that I forgot to write a Me and Mine post for December, although looking back, I don't think we had any family pictures that month. I really wanted to get one on Christmas day but with all the excitement (and red wine) we simply forgot. My last update was from November which you can read here, Me and Mine November which shows all of our family pictures from our trip to Disneyland Paris. 

Whilst my family were over we decided to try and get a family photo shoot. The last time we had any kind of family pictures was at our wedding which was 5 years ago this year and our family has changed and grown since then with the addition of Eva, Ophelia and our dog Alfie. We had an amazing photo shoot with a local photographer last year so we decided to use her again. She captured our stunning summer shots which you can see here, A walk in the park.

There's a mountain/forest area near to our house called 'The Wenallt' where we have always walked our dogs. We decided to have a family walk around there and let Donna snap away. 



This is my favourite one that she captured of the 4 of us. The colours are stunning. We'll definitely be printing it off.



Even the mud didn't stop us from having fun!



I really like this one. Even though we aren't looking at the picture, It's still lovely and so natural. 



This picture is something very special. This shows 4 generations of our family which is amazing. There's my nan and grandad (Eva and Ophelia's great grandparents), My step nan and grandad (again the girls' great grandparents), my mum and stepdad, my 2 sisters and hubby, myself, Eva (with her bunny from when she was a baby which she adores), Ophelia and even Alfie the dog. What's even more amazing is that everybody is looking at the camera. 

We had such a lovely time together as a family whilst they were over. We enjoyed lots of meals out and afternoon tea's. The girls were gutted when their family left.

Together this month we've loved:
Afternoon Tea
Moana 
Watching Ophelia taking her first steps
Family walks
Family time
Roast dinners

We haven't got any plans for February but hopefully we can manage to do something during half term.

  1. I love those photographs! Particularly the one of all your family! That's great that you got to spend time with them all. I bet that was pretty hectic though!

    The colours on the others are great too!

    We recently had family portraits done too for my mother in laws birthday but they was before I started doing Me and Mine.

    I look forward to your future months!

  22. My goodness, these photos are STUNNING! I must admit, I'm rubbish at remembering to take family photos. My youngest is nearly 3 months old and we're yet to get a photo of us all together. I may have to hire a photographer some time!
