Me and Mine: A Family Portrait in July


I can’t quite believe that it’s been a whole month since our last Me and Mine post, but the calendar says it has, so it must be true! We’re definitely settling into life as a family of four now and getting into the swing of things a bit more, even if the days are passing by in a bit of a blur!

Our photos this month were taken on my birthday, when we decided to mark the occasion by taking a trip to Mayfield Lavender (you can read the full post here). It was a bit of a fail as far as family photos go – call it baby brain, but I seem to have lost the ‘foot’ which attaches the camera to the tripod. A fact I only realised as we started to set it up! So we had to balance the camera rather precariously on top of the tripod – thankfully it was all fine! And then after we’d taken just a couple it started to rain, so we didn’t get as many chances as we might have liked, and Ben pretty much slept through it all, but still – I’m happy with how they turned out.




Linking up to Dear Beautiful for the #MeAndMineProject


  • Aaah lavender! So gorgeous. We’re hoping to go soon but our closest one is almost two hours away! x

    • Oh boo! I’d definitely say a two hour drive is worth it! I’m considering trying out Hitchin Lavender next year which is much further away from us

  • Laura @dearbearandbeany

    They are gorgeous Katy and Max’s beaming smile is still there. I love the lavender fields, we’ve not made it yet. When do they start to go a bit brown, am I too late? x

    • No, there’s plenty of time left still! Let me know if you fancy it – I’d be up for another trip and we could do a little photo swap so we can get some of us actually in the photos!

  • These are beautiful, despite your struggles with the camera, that is completely the type of thing I would do too by the way. xx

  • Lovely photos in amongst the lavender. It’s fun having to balance the camera on a tripod without the foot – I did the same one time when I’d planned family photos too! So glad that you are all settling in well to life as a four even if it does feel like it is all a bit of a blur at the moment. Hope you had a lovely birthday x #meandmineproject

    • I’m so glad it’s not just me! I usually just keep it attached to the camera so it’s ready, so I was a bit surprised when it wasn’t there!

  • So beautiful this month in the lavendar. It’s such a stunning back drop isn’t it? I wish we lived closer to it to visit one day. Fab to hear life as four is going smoothly. It goes so fast with two in tow. Happy belated birthday. #meandmineproject
