It almost feels painful to be sharing these family photos full of sunshine, when February is coming to a super cold conclusion. But anyone who has followed our adventures over on Instagram, or who caught our holiday snaps for The Siblings Project earlier in the month, will be in no way surprised to see that this month's version of The Me + Mine Project is a Dubai edition. 

It really was the perfect, sunshiny holiday. A break we called our baby moon; one last big adventure as a five before we become six in the Spring. It was lovely to catch up with my brother and his fiancee, and to explore the city we barely scratched the surface of last year. We still love our family photos from our Dubai trip last year, and I love that we have more beautiful ones to add to our collection. 

I love our photos this month, and I have my brother to thank for all of them. There is definitely something lovely about being able to step back from camera duty and have some slightly more candid photos of us together. But I have to say that my favourite is that top one; the only posed one... because just look how happy we all look. Now isn't that what family adventures and holidays are all about? 

I can't wait to see your lovely family portraits shared, so please do add your links below. And if you are sharing your photos on Instagram too then, please make sure you're following me and use #meandmineproject as I will be sharing some of my favourites.

The Me + Mine Project - Dear Beautiful


  1. I can feel the sunshine just radiating out of your pictures - it’s a real treat on a very cold and snowy morning! You all look so happy and relaxed, I’m glad your last adventure as a Five was such a hit!

  2. So I don't like you ever so slightly, BUT if I had just been on holiday in Dubai my Me & Mine picture would definitely be just like yours! ;-)
