Family photos mean a lot to me,
to us actually.
And I think anyone who has ever taken part in Me and Mine knows why;
there is something addictive about having yourselves recorded as a family.
Something about the beauty of seeing your family as the world sees you,
the embodiment of what love means.
I see photos of us as a four
and I just feel such overwhelming pride,
that that happy, smiling family I see is mine.
I love taking our family photos each month,
the challenge and the fun of bringing the shot together.
But sometimes it's nice to hand over the reigns to somebody else for a change,
so that I can focus on having fun with my family,
while someone else is worrying about the camera.
I could never get these totally natural moments of me just being me with my babies,
and that, for me, is totally priceless.
These lovely photos were taken by the talented Natalie of Erin May Photography.
Natalie took some gorgeous family photos for us last year (you can see those here),
and I was keen to book her again this year to take some more,
this time in a place which is so special for us.
We had so much fun doing this shoot,
relaxed, happy and having fun,
and I think that really shows.
