I just adore photos! I love having the house filled with prints of special times and funny moments.
(I'm also a photo hoarder - my phone memory is constantly clogged with far too many photos, as are my hard drives. And I have book cases and boxes filled with albums).
Since our children were born, we've pretty much managed to have professional family photos taken every year and I absolutely love looking back on these photos!
We had the opportunity to have some photos taken by My Family Photo, in Brisbane, and were very pleased with the results.
They specialise in providing affordable family portrait sessions.
(And when I say affordable, I'm talking $165 for a mini session that includes 15 high-res edited images that you can go off and print, or do whatever you please with! How good is that!).
As most families with toddlers and energetic pre-schoolers and a grade schoolers can understand, we had our work cut out for us in trying to keep our wriggly worms to stay still for photos and to all be looking at the camera (or smiling, or...at least not obscuring each others' faces) at the same time.
Our lovely photographer and assistant were very patient and managed to snap a couple of gorgeous pics we'll treasure for ever.
I have included some of our favourites in this blog post.
|Aaaah... big brothers. Say no more ;-)|
Our shoot took place in a park in Brisbane and it was a fairly cool and windy day - so the photographers did very well!The mini-sessions are 30 minute sessions for up to six people – perfect for families with little ones who can’t sit still for too long.
At the end of our shoot, the lovely photographers even suggested hubby and I get a couple of shots together - just the two of us - which was a lovely thought as hadn't really had any professional pics taken - of just the two of us - since our wedding day nine years ago.

It's definitely time for mum and dad (and grandparents) to step away from behind the camera, and get IN the picture.
How often do you have photos taken together as a family?
