Me & Mine - A Family Portrait Project 2015 - February

Has it really been a month already? February is a short month but it really has felt like it has flown by! I am still struggling to find some time for me, and blogging but hopefully that will happen soon.....I hope!

What have we been up to this month? We enjoyed Valentine's Day, Pancake Day, our 13 year anniversary of meeting, as well as half term and all the activities that involved. Wiss went to Pirate School at the South Bank 'Imagine' Festival, and got up on stage with Cowboy Max, learnt some circus skills at Clown School in Suffolk, and got brave at the waterpark going down the flumes by himself! I had a nasty bout of mastitis which knocked me for six and wiped me out for a week. The husband went to the NME awards show and tried not to feel too old! And February was a big month for little Ferne: she started on solid foods, learnt to roll from back to front, celebrated her 6 month 'birthday' and started babbling and saying 'mama'!

This month's photo was taken by a photographer at the water park - we were not expecting to have our picture taken but it's a great memento of a very fun, and noisy day on the last day of half term.

I am loving being part of this family portrait project - not only are there such great pictures being shared each month by all the other participants, but it is making me find the photo opportunities that I wouldn't have done before. It's wonderful to see all 4 of us together!

Do pop over and have a look at the rest of this month's Me & Mine portraits...
dear beautiful


  1. Oh this is such a lovely photo! Sounds like you have been really busy as a family during February but also making the most of it. I also really enjoy doing this photography project because it forces me to look for photo opportunities when it would be so easy to let the month/year pass me by without taking any photos of us. There are still some months where on the last day I realise we haven't taken a photo yet and there's only two of us!

  2. Lovely photo. Looks like you had a fun and very busy month. Hope you are feeling better.

  3. Great photo! Looks like you were all having a lot of fun in the pool as the smiles are very natural! Very unusual to get a shot in the pool, so a nice one to have!

  4. That is such a great photo of your foursome in the pool, and nice to get a photo you wouldn't be able to set up yourself. You sound like you've had a really busy February! x

  7. Thank you for all your comments! There's a lovely community growing around this project too which is wonderful.
    It was so unexpected to see a photographer at the pool and normally we would have steered away from him, thinking that it was a bit strange. But with this project in mind I was really keen for him to take our picture!

  8. Fantastic photograph. What a lovely snapshot of what looks like a fab day. Have a super March #MeandMine

  9. Oh I love this, how awesome you were able to capture a pool shot of you all. Brilliant capture #meandmine
