We’ve all seen those cringe-worthy awkward family photos that do the rounds on Facebook and email (read on to see some of my faves). Well today we had our own family photo shoot… That’s something I never thought I’d say.
I always looked at other people’s posed photos and quietly sniggered at the staged snaps, fake smiles and matching outfits. However after having our own shoot I realised what a special opportunity it is to capture the precious memories of life with a newborn.
This shoot was a gift from my sister and after much debate I agreed that my husband and I would also appear in some of the photos. I was quite reluctant at first and wanted it to just focus on our daughter. It was awkward enough smiling and posing for our wedding photos. I wasn’t overly keen to go through that again.
Then in strolled in our photographer and so began a most wonderful day.

While waiting for instructions on how to stand, sit or smile, I was pleasantly surprised when our photographer (Renee Robertson Make-Up, Tanning and Photography) simply started clicking away, capturing the splendid banality of our everyday life while chatting about our home and what’s been happening since we last saw each other.
