It’s hard to get a photo of all three children together and even harder to get one where someone isn’t covered in food, crying or out of focus!
This year I’m joining in with Siblings – a monthly photo challenge to take a photo of them all together once a month.
I set about taking my first Sibling photo today and whilst I didn’t get quite the perfect capture I had hoped for I’ve got a number of pictures I want to share for my post this month. (I realise this might be cheating a little but I couldn’t narrow it my choices down to just one as each picture demonstrates something about their relationship at this stage in time).
So the first photo is a complete set up – I wanted to photograph them all sat on the floor in the playroom (as the lighting is pretty good in there) and I knew I could get Amy to sit on Ben’s knee, I was hoping I might just get them all looking at the camera, a proper posed shot I guess. A photo which captured their gorgeous faces. Obviously this is quite tricky as whilst Ben and Chlo will follow instruction (to a point) Amy isn’t going to listen when I was her to sit still and look at the camera! I took quite a few pictures but these are my favourites:
I’m not sure why Chloe felt the need to put her arms in the air but it made me laugh. In the second shot I had asked Ben to try and put Amy in the middle of them as I kept losing his face behind her head – as you can she was unimpressed and that was the end of our little session right there!
The next set of photos captures more of a moment – Amy is so close to walking but just doesn’t quite have the confidence yet. Watching Ben and Chloe helping her to walk this morning was really special and gave me a little snapshot of the future. I can just imagine them walking about with her in the park in the Spring when she’s really found her feet!
