The ONE thing I want from every "memorable" occasion is at least one nice photo.
Is that too much to ask?
I've spoken before about how important it is for me (AND YOU!) to get in photos with the kids. It was a journey for me in 2011 but I'm there now and I get a good haul of about 100 decent (made the cut) photos every year.
Isn't that awesome?!
Anyway, so when we went to Ballito to celebrate my 40th birthday, I wanted nice photos against the fabulous grey wall.
At the time I thought the photo session was a disaster.... then again, I always do.... but I got some beautiful photos and some weird ones that I LOVE!
Here is just a small selection of photos from the 4th day and the photo session against that wall!
|Essence - Berry (R24,95 from Clicks) It is my "normal" signature shade.|
|this is actually what it's like trying to take photos with 5-year-olds - ZERO focus|
|unexpected great one!|
Do you consciously get in photos with your kids?
(if not, let's set a goal, just get in 3 photos for the months remaining of 2014, one a month. So this is something I'm willing to do a link-up for. Will you participate? If you're nervous, start with all your feet or hands, and then profile shots, til you get comfortable with a "proper" photo)
PS I have a photo of my mother and I when I was THREE, and I made sure to get one of her now I'm FORTY! Nothing in between except wedding photos.
