Yes, so I am sort of predictable with the family portraits this month, but I don't care. Holidays are those kind of moments when most families (the ones who don't get obsessive compulsive about getting monthly family photos) would normally remember to get a snap together. Holidays are about those big moment and special memories, the kind of thing that makes you really want to get the camera out and capture it all.

They aren't technically perfect; the Mickey ones were taken by a kind cast member in Walt Disney Studios so I had to just trust he'd get them focused up okay, and the castle ones were taken on a timer using the buggy as a tripod which made it impossible to get us four and the full height of the castle in. But do you know what? I love them. Of all the Me and Mine photos we have taken over the last few years I know that these are without a shadow of a doubt our happiest ones, full of magic and memories. And that is everything!


This month I am sending you to visit the lovely Fritha and her husband Tom and son Wilf over at Tigerlilly Quinn. They are sure to have adorable family photo portraits to share... because they always do. Her blog is one of my favourites, with a real mix of family, fashion, home and lots of gorgeous photos with lovely pops of colour, so do have a look around while you're there.

Don't forget that by linking up a Me and Mine photo with us you are automatically in with a chance of winning a collage photo cushion with PhotoBox. So if the joy of having a new family photo wasn't incentive enough, there is a possible prize in it for you too.


dear beautiful

  3. HOORAY for Disney magic!!! I am bookmarking all your posts to send to my Mum and sister so we can pick up some tips. I LOVE that you are in Disney clothes too, totally giving your children the most incredible experience, and look at their little faces! I remember going as a child and can't wait to share that with the boys. Lovely photos xxxx

    1. I think you kind of have to embrace the whole thing, and wearing Disney clothes is part of it. Even Rich got involved and brought himself a t-shirt while we were there, you just can't really help yourself but get swept up in it. You guys are going to have so much fun! x

    1. Well that is certainly very true. Would have loved to have my tripod so I could have framed it up better, but couldn't face carrying it around the parks all day, and I figured that it doesn't matter in the scheme of things, but our memories do! x

  9. omg how amazing are these photos! This is such an wonderful thing to do with your family, I've never been but I remember the longing as a child and even watching disney movies with Wilf the magic is still there. I'd love to take W sometime and thanks for your lovely words! xx

    1. Thats exactly it I think, the films get woven into our childhoods, and it makes it impossible not to get swept away in the magic when you are surrounded by it. We had such an amazing time, even more amazing than I'd expected. x

  36. I'm soooooo sorry I am so late with my comment this month. I had to post my link and run and I haven't stopped the last couple of week - also now fighting off chicken pox in the house that is in danger of ruining our Disney holiday when I REALLY need a holiday so I can take a break.
    What wonderful photos and I'm so glad you had a fantastic time at Disney… you can't beat it! xx

    ReplyDelete
  37. There is nothing better that photos at Disney, you post away. I'm glad you loved your time there, I always worry about Disneyland Paris because I have been spoilt by Florida and I went for my 30th when 33 weeks pregnant. Not the best thing do to. It hasn't stopped me booking for next year though x
