Siblings: January 2017

19 January, 2017 4 Comments

I have long been an admirer of the Siblings Project, a monthly portrait of siblings together. What’s not to like about having a series of photos documenting your children? While I have long been taking part in Living Arrows for precisely that reason, I am finding it increasingly more difficult to get photos of Betsy and Arthur together. To take part in Siblings every month would mean taking pictures with more intention, actively seeking out moments of these two together, and that is no bad thing.

These pictures from this month are far from the quality that I would like. Taken last weekend while on a break from decorating, I took the kiddos to the supermarket (we know how to have fun!) and we popped into Krispy Kreme for a treat (It may have been a bribe to get the children out of the house while Dave finished off and knocked out the wardrobe. I’m brilliant at parenting!). While covered in sugar and sprinkles, I took a couple of shots of Boo on her own when all of a sudden, Arthur walked round, popped his arm around her and shouted “CHEEEESE” at me. A first time for that and a photo opportunity not to be missed. Shame about the bright outdoors behind them, but the memory kept far more important.

    Aah this is lovely! And you’re right about the background β€” it’s the captured memory that’s important. One day, in years to come, that background will remind you where you were that day πŸ˜‰ Caro x #SiblingsProject

    Hi Charlotte, I have very few photos of my children as they were growing up, had I of had a blog back then I am sure that would not have been the case. By the look on your children’s faces, they know you know how to have a good time… I so want to go to a proper doughnut shop like Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’ Donut, I am a bit of a fan of a decent doughnut.

    Thank you for linking up with #MMBC.
