The Me and Mine Project is all about capturing your whole family together in a photograph. I feel really passionate about the importance of photographs of family, and not just photographs of children. Our children will want to see us present in their childhoods when they're older. So we shouldn't wait until the perfect day or until we lose a little weight, or until we get better at photography. What really matters in that we photograph all the memories, and that means all of us being in them.

So each month we take a whole family photo, and then on the final day of each month we share the photos we got and a little bit about what our family has been up to that month. Simple as that. I would absolutely LOVE to have you join in too and share your family with us each month. So there is a linky at the end of my post, so that you add your family photos.

The Me and Mine Project

We have a lovely little community over on The Me and Mine Project's facebook page, for those that don't blog and also for those that do. Or you can join in over on Instagram by following @meandmineproject and using #meandmineproject, where we can inspire each other all month long with lots of lovely family portraits. Here are some of the recent shares...


So stop making excuses... get in front of that camera with your loved ones!

And if you need anymore convincing, look at the little collection of family photos that my little family have now... I couldn't be prouder. Of the fact that we have all these photos and memories. And of the people who are in them.

    1. You simply post your own photo on your blog, copy the web address for that post. Then at the bottom of my post will be a "linky" and you add your blog post into the list. It will then automatically show on all the cohosting blogs and other people who are joining in with the project can find you can stop by to say hi. x

  10. I love this idea and I do make excuses not to be in photos. Don't know if I will be brave enough to post on blog but definitely want to take monthly family photos. I may be brave enough to post Octobers in Halloween costumes with me in full mask lol x
