Stepping out from behind the camera

Recently I was asked for a photo of myself with the boys.  Like many Mums, I’m normally the one behind the camera and while I take a few ‘selfless’ of us all, there are very few ‘proper’ photos of us all together.  I’m also not a huge fan of having my photo taken at the moment, however I realise the importance of having pictures of myself and the boys together while they are young.

Looking through the small (and to be honest, very dodgy) collection of photos of the three of us, it reminded me that I need to make a much bigger effort to have photos taken with both of the boys

I’m now going to be really brave and post some of these stunning photos – this is going to be my inspiration to make sure I get more ‘proper’ photos of the three of us together.

FatMumSlim September Photo a Day Challenge

For the last month I have been participating in the FatMumSlim Photo a Day Challenge.  I’ve tried it a couple of times in the past, but have always given up after a week or two.  I’m proud to say I have not missed a day this month!  I’ve really enjoyed it, some days it’s been a challenge to find a subject for the days’ prompt, however it’s been fun to think creatively (some days anyway) and not just be taking photos of the boys and the dog – although they have appeared in a few photos….  I have just used my iPhone for these photos, as it’s the easiest way to upload to instagram – which I am now addicted to instead of Candy Crush (which is a good thing).

The prompt list for September has now been released – see link.  Who is game to join in?  FAQ’s and further information is available on FatMumSlim’s website & you are welcome to follow me on instagram – laurenm8311 or I will be posting on here as well.

Have fun!
