I always find writing is such a long process for me which is why my personal blog posts always take me sooo long to put into words, and why I’m posting my selection of June moments in August! June was a much better month for us after the beating we were given in May with our teething toddlers. Both boys had made it through the worst and were a lot happier and more playful especially with each other.
I looked back on my pictures from June and while I have the more structured images shared elsewhere, its the completely candid blooper shots that have made me giggle, and the ones I have chosen to share in this post. I can’t pose my boys. The twins don’t follow instructions and they definitely won’t stand still in pretty light unless I get really lucky. My eldest is marginally more co-operative. So I am pretty much shooting by the seat of my pants with them and always looking for a moment that brings it all together. The in between moments are the ones I truly love though.
I gave my husband my big camera to try and get a picture of me with the boys and its a cracker. Talk about capturing a moment, I think he nailed it though!! Dad then went away for a week to Nashville which we all managed to cope with, but we were so, so glad to have him home. I knew I wanted to get a shot of the boys greeting him at the front door and I was all on track with getting the boys fed and dressed. All I needed to do was remove the bazillion pairs of shoes we seem to have at the front door and get my camera settings ready. Well Dad pulled into the driveway before I could get my camera settings ready so I was shooting and adjusting during the fast flurry of excitement at the door and squeals of ‘Daddy! Daddy! Daddy!’ and hoping to heaven my shots weren’t under or overexposed. It was all over within seconds it seemed, a quick check and I sighed a sigh of relief, I got them!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope some of these make you smile!
