We love having a blog, the friends we have met through blogging are some of the funniest, most interesting people we know *though we do have some very cool non blogging friends*. The opportunities that have arisen through blogging continue to amaze and surprise us each day, we really don’t take anything for granted and are so grateful for any thing that comes our way.
Blogging about our family is something we hold quite dear to our hearts. We want to open the doors to same-sex families and show that we are just two parents in love raising a child that we adore. One of our favourite linkys we join in with is Me and Mine, run by the lovely Lucy from Dear Beautiful. We love sharing our family shot each month and making sure all three of us get in front of the camera. I am conscious of that fact we choose the exact moment we share with you. I edit it until I am pleased it is up to the standard I want to share and I make sure I pick a picture that portrays the message I wish to portray that month. So you all get to see exactly what we want you to see.
Well this weekend a lovely friend of ours called Hayley who takes the odd photo and blogs too. captured a family moment behind the scenes. I didn’t set up the camera, I didn’t snap the exact moment I wanted to and I didn’t get to edit the image my way. The lovely Hayley held all the cards. She snapped away at us being a family, sharing an intimate moment, laughing with each other, smiling at something one of us has said and I adore the photos. They are us, they capture us completely. Yes we have bad days, no we don’t always smile and yes sometimes we would rather all not be in a picture together. But the day Hayley took our photos was a day we enjoyed so much.
The photos weren’t taken as part of a shoot, we were just a family feeding apples to some Ponies. So I wanted to show you them, just to share our regular family.
