Our Portrait Pictures for 2014 … Finally …

_MG_3550-1Ok so we finally got round to doing our portaits this year … and just in time to get them done before my 28 BEFORE 28 challenge ends in a couple weeks … it was just one of those items on the list that really shouldn’t have been that hard … but we always ended up postponing it when other things got in the way or by the time we came to do it we had run out of steam and didn’t have the energy to move furniture and set up the lights … anyway this last weekend we finally put rest to all the excuses and got on with it first thing in the morning before heading out for the day …

 _MG_3557-1 _MG_3556-1 _MG_3554-2 _MG_3529-2We started with just a few pictures of the two of us to make sure everything was lined up properly … then came the challenging part … getting photos with the boys … they were a lot younger and smaller (7months old) last time we did THIS

_MG_3520-1 _MG_3484-1They were so fidgity and unimpressed with the whole process the above two pictures were the best we could get of the four of us … below some of the best photos of us individually with the boys … First up Perry …

We tried somewhat successfully to use their toys as a way to keep their attention and faces looking towards the camera … this would explain the look of concentration on Hugo’s face above …

_MG_3494-2 _MG_3497-1Hugo was being all wriggly by the time I got to him …

_MG_3504-1I’m pretty sure I have exactly the same picture from last time with Derek … love his little surprised look …

_MG_3501-2We also had to have a few goofy silly photos thrown in for good measure …

_MG_3539-1 _MG_3535-1 _MG_3560-2 _MG_3538-2 _MG_3491-1 _MG_3490-1In the end I’m really happy we finally made time to take these pictures … it was good fun and we laughed a lot doing it … something we really need to make more of an effort to do regularly …

Anyway that is it for this post …

Thank you for stopping by …

Till next time …
