Me and Mine - January

It's that time again. I normally leave our family pictures to the last minute, I need to be more organised but this month I had a plan. Well, I had half a plan. Marks birthday is January 24th so I thought that would be the perfect day to capture our family on his 30th birthday.

It was all going well until we all got caught up in the moment which is lovely when you are the ones caught up but no so lovely when you forget to do something. Luckily my phone was right there so I grabbed it and took a few pictures right as Mark was blowing his candles out.




Because my arms aren't long enough, even though I do have strangely long arms, I managed to cut off my head quite a lot but oh well. If you look behind us Millie is also sat at the window. A very happy accident!

A true family moment captured at just the right time.

  14. I love these pics, I often find the more natural unplanned ones are just as good as the perfectly setup pics! Happy bday Mark! x

  15. Awww, I think these are fab, and so fun. I love that you got caught up in the moment and then quickly thought to grab a camera and capture it. And definitely a happy accident to get the cat in the background, I keep saying we need to get one with the two cats in, but not sure how I'd keep two cats and two kids in one place long enough. Thanks so much for linking up with Me and Mine. x
