A wedding and a family photo

Just a lovely family photo we managed to capture at a wedding we were at over the weekend. This was the best shot we had of both kids looking a the camera (although we had a mini photo-bomber in the background).


We don’t have many family photos of all of us in the frame altogether at the same time. The last family photo we took was over five months ago.

Most of the time the photos we snap are of the kids, or with just one of us in the frame. I’m usually the one behind the camera 99% of the time. Not because I’m particularly camera shy, but I’m generally quicker at pulling out the lens to capture a moment before it disappears. Classic blogger attribute I suppose.

Here are some other lovely snapshots from the wedding we attended… the couple had pretty vintage theme for their wedding with flowers in mason jars and bottles, wooden, crates, doilies and various old style bits and pieces.


My parents happened to be in town visiting and were happy to babysit, so we were able to head out to the reception dinner later in the evening for a full-fledge adults only affair. I pulled together an outfit of a green shift dress, a string of pearls and my black & white peep-toe heels.

I snapped this while I was in the ladies at the hotel where the reception dinner was being held. I was just heading out the door when I caught sight of my image in the ginormous mirror they had in the hallway. I don’t have many occasions for getting all dressed up so this seemed to be an image worth capturing.


When was the last family photo you took together? Or the last photo you or someone snapped of you?
Do you sometimes wish you weren’t always the one behind the camera all the time?

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
