Family Photoshoot - The Good, The Bad & The Ugly


Back in October of 2015 the four of us trotted on through to Edinburgh to have a little family photoshoot and I thought it's about time I shared some photos of our day. We'd never had professional photos taken of Harlow and I really wanted some that I could put up around the house. There were loads of lovely photos of Logan but poor Harlow was being left out as lazy Mummy hadn't printed and framed any, whoops! A family photoshoot sounded perfect though but boy what a stressful experience it was.

On the morning of the photoshoot we set off quite happily and on the way through I was explaining to Logan what we were doing, where it was and what would sort of happen when we got there. Logan seemed completely fine with everything I was telling him but the poor soul went into autistic meltdown when we got there. It all started with harassing his baby sister as soon as the lady on reception handed us a book to look through to see if there were any images that stood out for us. Logan just wouldn't leave Harlow alone, pushing her over and flicking paper in her face. I knew it was going to be hard from the way he was acting. When we got into the room the poor photographer must have wished he'd stayed at home that day as Logan's main goal was to make his sister cry. Oh the stress!

Anyway to cut a long story short it was a complete nightmare and I'm surprised the photographer got any good shots at all but thankfully he did, hurrah. Here's some of the good the bad and the ugly ha ha!

Aww thanks. I know, right? Never a dull moment. I'm sure we wouldn't have it any other way though ;)

We had a family photo shoot just before Christmas - bloody nightmare! The toddler refused to look at the camera and had her fingers in her mouth the whole time! We got one shot - one! But I'm amazed we got even that!!! Glad you got so many great shots. #wickedwednesday

Lol, it's so hard isn't it. The older they get the less cooperation you get from them! Thank goodness you got one shot at least. Yeah I'm glad we managed to get a few shots, worth it in the end.

Thank goodness we did, I was starting to wonder why we'd even bothered going along and who's idea was it anyway (it was mine haha)!

I love that photo, one to show them when they're older :)

The one with the phone is amazing! We did a shoot with my girl when she was just over one. By the end of it all of us were crying. There was one nice shot. ONE! Thanks so much for linking up to #wickedwednesdays and I can't wait to see what you have for me next week x

You're welcome, I'll need to keep a diary note to join in next week :) x

What lovely photographs! We've never ever done anything like this as a family. I imagine it being very stressful. I'd love some family pictures though, so maybe I should be brave!

Thanks Rebecca. It is very stressful, not so much with our baby girl but with Logan as he wasn't sure what was going on poor lamb. It was worth it in the end though and it's so good to have some family photos where everyone's looking :)
