Me & Mine {June 2014}

Anyone who has seen our Me & Mine posts from the start will understand that I am often late with the posts due to Dave’s shiftwork and a lack of family time. They’ll also remember that I had never used the self timer on my camera back in January and had only recently got my DSLR.

Me & Mine {June 2014}

We are now 6 months into this year’s Me & Mine project and this month feels so symbolic for me. I have not only had time to take photos of us but I have also taken my tripod out with us, attached it to the pushchair handle and used the self timer away from the security of our own home and garden. This month I am proud of myself and for that reason I am sharing three different Me & Mine photos – I took them to give a choice for this post but I couldn’t decide and I wanted to share them all!

Me & Mine {June 2014}

This month started with a little holiday, a weekend away in the New Forest and I took the photos whilst we were there. Other than that Dave has been working and I have been preparing for my return to work – in a few days time! A usual month for us but with a lovely little break full of family time.

    1. I only got my camera in December and saw your portrait projects soon after. It was a little unspoken resolution of mine that I would join in with Me&Mine, Me&You and Siblings to force me to take photos that I wouldn’t take otherwise. Halfway through the year and I can truly thank you for helping me take photos of my family 🙂 Thanks Lucy! x

  3. LOVE these photos, you all look so happy! I especially love the swings one – I really want to get an ‘action’ shot for at least one of our Me & Mine pictures, instead of just posing for them 🙂

  4. I really thought you were a regular tripod user! You have such lovely photos of the kids all the time that in my head you’re in the ‘photographer’ blogger group 🙂 x
