I’ve never done a proper family photoshoot before. I guess because in my mind they are always awful. No offence if you like those dreadful staged photos on a cheesy background, where you’re all lying on your fronts with your heads resting in your hands, they’re just not my thing.
We’re going to be moving house soon, (once the vendor finds her stupid gas safety certificate and we can finally set a date), and looking around the house where we are now I’ve realised that all of our family photos are at least five years old.
On the one had this is fine – I looked much younger and thinner then, and the girls had cute chubby cheeks – but it’s starting to feel a bit weird, like perhaps the last few years haven’t actually been real?
I decided that a new house should mean a new start photo wise, and so reluctantly I have been taking down the photos of Belle dressed as an Easter bunny, ready to put up more recent ones.
But what to do about a shoot that wouldn’t mean us looking like this??
(Apologies if this is you and your family but seriously, what were you thinking with those baubles and Dad casually holding a gift?!)
Cue Liam from Life is Crawsome and his super cool drone.
Nothing could be further from the Christmas bauble awfulness than spending the afternoon in the middle of a forest, lying on the floor while a drone hovers above you taking pictures.
