That’s a slight misconception as my husband is in the background of this siblings photo but getting snaps of all three of my boys are far and few between so it was this or nothing! I love this shot as it captures their personalities perfectly; Teenager’s ‘whatever / too cool for school’ Tween’s cheekiness and Baby R’s ‘I’m doing what ever they’re doing’ attitude. All looking at me as I shout “smile” for the umpteenth time on a weekend away.
These guys get so fed up with me and my constant request for photos but then love looking back on old ones so I pay no attention to their half baked “not another photo” moans, as I know it’s just part of the photo pose routine now. Plus, as a photography loving mum, I have no intention of putting the camera down unless it falls into one of my golden rules of blogging.
It’s photos like these which remind me I must get in front of the camera more. I’m much happier behind the lens but in a recent review which I write for clothing boutique, Milk & Mummy I needed to get some action shots which just weren’t happening with my vain attempts at mirror selfies. And anyone else’s shots (both Tween & Daz had a go) couldn’t make it past my critical, technical eye.
So my challenge for the next couple of weeks is to get a full set siblings plus mum Melfie just so I can look back and prove I’m not always the face behind the lens, mum was there too.
