Me and Mine Project | January 2016

I am totally in love with this idea and I am all aboard the Me and Mine bandwagon this year.

I keep seeing these fly around and I read a few roundup posts of 2015 and pledged to the husband that we will join in. So a photo of the 5 (or 6.. got to include the pooch in some, right!) every month. They don't need to be fancy, there doesn't need to be loads, But 1 good photo of us as a family every single month this year. At the end of the year we should have at least 12 awesome photos of us all and we can see how much we have all changed over the year. Be it hair styles, tans and height! 

I'm so excited already for December to look back on our year with hopefully a whole load of memories and stories to tell.

So here is our first month! January 2016. My tribe! I was so excited as I ordered a remote trigger to help us out. 10 seconds to click and run to the right position was quite frankly a pain in the arse. Also means we can take multiple at one time. Ohh technology, how I love thee.

January, although terribly long, seemed to whizz by. I have said it before and I'll say it again, I'm not a January fan and welcoming February sure is a good thing in our house. As much as I love the crisp mornings, I get a bit bored of them by about the 3rd day of it. A true sun worshipper through and through I long for the summer months at this point every year. We had scheduled in to take these this weekend as Joe has been working 7 days a week and today was his first day off since the beginning of Jan. Obviously, it is pouring it down outside and not camera weather at all. Slightly gutted, we decided to improvise and take some at home. After all, we do love days at home so it does seem fitting to take them in the comfort of our lounge.

Tripod set, remote set up and I added my flash too as our lounge is quite dark especially when its so over cast outside.

We did get carried away... Out takes at the end ;)

Our Me and Mine photos of January 2016.

And of course... The out takes... ;)

The Me and Mine Project


  1. These photos are totally ACE, and I love the outtakes too. You all look gorgeous and so relaxed and happy at home, such a lovely photo to start The Me and Mine Project with. I'll look forward to seeing your collection of photos grow this year, it's such a fun and meaningful little project to have as a family. x

    1. Ahh thank you Lucy! I can't wait to do some more this month! Hopefully we can get outside for them this time x

  2. Oh I just ABSOLUTELY love these!!! One of the best I've seen this month, I LOVE that your dog is in it AND looking at the camera! :D Awesome! xx

    1. Ahh thank you so much Alex, he is such a charmer (the dog!! lol) and seems to know when I'm taking pictures, i'm sure he is way more aware than I think ;) x
