It’s Sunday, which means that it is time for the #rememberingthesedays for photographs that capture the special moments in family life round up with myself and Clare from Mudpie Fridays .
After a bit of a break for Christmas (and a little holiday for me out to Langkawi) we are now nearly 6 months into #rememberingthesedays. I *think* we are twenty five weeks in, but however long we have been running one thing hasn’t changed – we continue to be blown away by the incredible images, the beautiful memories shared and the real community feel that is starting to develop. Instagram is my happy place, and I love that you all share these precious moments with us at #rememberingthesedays.
And with that said, we would love you all to keep joining in next week, we love seeing those precious family moments from the ordinary moments to the extraordinary, because let’s face it, when you have children even the ordinary moments become special. Simply tag any photos of your memories #rememberingthesedays for a chance to feature.
Every week when I look through the photos I look for a theme that jumps out at me. This week I was loving the light, bright winter sunshine beaming through the photos. Leaping out of the screen. I love the way that light can envelope a photo, the beams just enhancing the effect. This week for me has been about the light…

Jump in the waves
Just before Christmas we were able to take some time out and travel together for a last minute family holiday to Langkawi, Malaysia. I am always moaning at my husband that I’m never in the photos, so whilst I was chasing after the pair of them on the beach instead of enjoying the relaxing sundowner I was meant to be drinking he captured this shot of the 3 of us. I adore it!
And just like that our holiday is over, what a wonderful and relaxing week we have had. We’ve swam in the pool, built sandcastles on the beach and danced in the waves. Now it’s time to head back home ready for Santa to come, for turkey to be (defrosted eep) roasted and to enjoy the magic of Christmas. . But first? 17 hours travel to contend with…..
One of the hardest things I’ve found as my boys get bigger is to take photos of them together, they like to run in different directions. I adore this photo of Monkey and Kipper – such a beautiful shot to cherish.
Christmas is a time when I try to put social media down. Although I am sure I will be popping into instagram the rest of my social media channels will be very quiet for the next week or so. Therefore I want wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a wonderful end to 2016. Thank you to the lovely @samphirephotography for this gorgeous photo of the boys
We’d love to see your #rememberingthesedays photos, please do tag us over on Instagram.
