It's been a pretty quiet month for us
which has been lovely.
However we did have time to squeeze in a professional photoshoot
at Boggio Studios this month
and I can't wait to share the photos with you all.
Family photos have become a bit of an obsession for me this year
and I'm so incredibly proud and happy about the collection we have now.

The ones we have taken this month are really special to me.
Last August, when we were in the last stages of life as a three,
we took a selection of photos of us together at a beautiful location near us
(you can see the post and photos here)
and this month we went back to the same place
and charted the changes our family has seen in a year
by taking some new family portraits.

It's never too late to join in with Me & Mine: a family portrait project,
it will be carrying on in to next year
so you can still get your year's worth of photos.
I think a lot of the people who are taking part
are finding it so valuable that they plan on going beyond the year marker that was originally planned.
If you join us now, I'm pretty sure you'll get addicted to family photos too.


This week I'm sending you to visit Chloe and her boys Sam, Arlo and Rory
I know that she has been recreating old photos too this month
(there must be some nostalgia floating around in the air this time of year)
and they are sure to be beautiful.

If you would like me to tweet your link up out on Twitter
then remember to add the Me and Mine badge to your post.
I will tweet about everyone who is showing off the badge.

dear beautiful

I've shown you me and mine,
now we want to see you and yours . . .

    1. It's definitely been a lovely summer, although part of me is really looking forward to some Autumnal photo shoots now. x

  2. I love that you chose a place special to you for this month's photos. You will definitely treasure them when you look back because they are somewhere that means something to you. I love the last one, BG's face is just so cheeky! You are so lucky to have your Daddy on hand to take lovely photos for you, my tripod just isn't as good interaction as a human. ;) x

    1. It definitely helps to have a person to be behind the camera. The ones he has taken for us are definitely more relaxed.
      I think we'll go back to this place each year to get a shot, it's nice to have a photo each year against the same backdrop to record the changes. x

    1. I think we might have to take them yearly. It's such a gorgeous garden that we'll definitely go at least once each summer. x

    1. Thanks lovely. It's been too fun to not carry it on next year. I can't wait to have a whole 2013's worth of monthly portraits. It's going to be great. x

  7. They're lovely photos, and what a gorgeous location to take pictures. I'm definitely carrying on into next year having initially committed myself to our year of 33 but I'm so loving looking back on just the few we've got that I'm guaranteed to be keeping going - at least until the Pinterest inspiration board runs out...!

    1. I'm the same. I don't think I've ever been involved in a project before, where I so love looking back over the photos I've got. And I think a monthly project is pretty manageable so that helps. So glad you are enjoying it. x

  8. Gorgeous photos and it's super that it's such a special place for you. Also SNAP! MC had her first cinema trip too. Hope the boy enjoyed it just as much as MC. I have a confession to make - my photo was taken this evening. How rubbish! I didn't want to miss it as I love this linky SO much x

    1. Hahaha. It doesn't matter when you took the photo, its the taking part that counts. We loved our first cinema trip, I'm glad MC loved it too. x

    1. Yes, I think I will revisit a couple of the locations for next year, and also do some fresh and new locations too. x

  10. These are lovely pictures, as always. I especially love the first one.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your pro shoot pictures. We are lucky enough to have a few Boggio prints on our walls, and I really need to find an excuse for another shoot!

  14. every month I'm inspired by your ability to take your own family of 4 pics and vow to give more thought to ours and try setting up a tripd. Then before I know it your post is dropping into my reader to herald the passing of another month. Perhaps I'll manage it by Christmas!

    1. We get some help from my Dad taking it for us some months, he's got used to me dragging him and my mum along to some funny places over the last few months. We've for more ambitious over the summer, but I think we'll take more relaxed ones as the colder weather sets in. x

  15. It will be lovely if you can go back to the same place every year and get that photo. I like the one of you on the steps too but then I love all the Me & Mine photos! xx

  16. This looks like such a lovely place. I remember your photos from last year, you should display them side-by-side (especially if you carry on the tradition year on year, that woue awesome!)

    1. I definitely want to carry on the tradition. I like the idea of using a couple of backdrops each year to chart our family as it grows. x

  17. I love all these pictures, so natural and pretty, I am guessing super Daddy has been using his skills again xx
