This week I’m grateful for keepsakes for our girls.
When Baby 1 was born we decided we wanted to do a funny photo of her and Twiggy in front of this horrid, yet very groovy, wallpaper in our now-renovated bathroom. As we had a newborn, he hadn’t shaved for ages so we decided a 70’s theme would be best, complete with handle-bar moustache.
This is the photo.
It was so fun doing the shoot, we decided then and there that for each child we would pick a different theme and do a special photo. It helps Twiggy is a photographer.
Then came Baby 2 and as we’d been living in the Hills for awhile we thought it best to pay homage to the country. This is the photo.
And then, you guessed it, all that fresh country air, we had Baby 3. By this time, we were so tired from not getting any sleep and were nuttier than ever. Bundy become one of Twiggy’s friends, you know one you see every now and then. So, we thought we’d show it some love back. This is the photo.
Every time I look back at these photos I laugh and I know one day the girls will too. It beats the usual baby pictures and will make fantastic keepsakes.
When the girls are a bit older we want to take a “special” photo of them with me. We’re thinking a group shot, but we can’t work out what to do. Any ideas?
* This is part of a blog hop. Head over to Maxabella Loves… sometime and check out her gorgeous blog.
Those snaps are GOLD, just GOLD!
LOL these are priceless keepsakes.
What a unique idea.
Funny shots! Truly memorable ones. I hope I had this idea too. Happy weekend!
That is hysterical! I love the wallpaper shot. You actually LIVED with that wallpaper???
I LOVE this idea and kudos to your husband for totally getting into the spirit of things as well!
Loving them all and that they are a great ‘snapshot’ of your life at the time that each new family member was born.
How fantastic to have as a montage!
Bloody brilliant. A treasure for ever. x
fantastic! what an awesome idea – and an amazingly simple yet unique keepsake…
wow they are awesome photo….
I’m sure when the time comes, something jazzy will just pop into your creative head again! Lovely to see a man holding his babies.
lol what a great idea!
These pics made me laugh so much I had tears in my eyes … What a fun family you are!!
I have some ideas … but it’s kinda tricky cause I dont really know you but what if you did something that is popular at the time, like a Harry potter / twilight theme, or the first woman prime minister, or the Wiggles in coloured skivvies or your fav band???
Good luck in deciding … am sure the pic will be a ripper.
Great photos! 🙂
Love it! Such a great idea.
That’s awesome. I love those photos!!
Maybe when the girls grow up you could do a funny group shot where you are all doing something different!
e.g You could be dolled up while dusting the house. Then someone on the phone, another brushing their hair etc!? (girly stuff)… And lots of pinks and yellows in the background! 😀
Just a thought.
Wow! Brett has amazing sideburns – almost as bushy as Jemaine’s from Flight of the Conchords. He rocks. This made me laugh so much!
Okay, I know it’s not a competition
(well, maybe it is), but I have to say this is one of the more creative blog sites I have visited lately. So punk rock with the 70’s theme! I love it!
That just made my day ! So gorgeous !
Oh wow…how funny! I am here to follow you back…thank you soo much for following me! Happy blogging…looking forward to your posts! 🙂
They are brilliant!
What a great gift for your kids.
Definitely worth being grateful for I say.
Marvellous photos! Perhaps you could set up your girlie group shot like the Baboushkas in your sidebar?
Best baby photos ever! What a wonderful idea – your girls will love them in the future!
I am amused! Great pictures! I love that you did this! Your kids are lucky to grow up with parents with such a great sense of humor!
Thanks for stopping by the Dandelion Wrangler! It was great to meet you! I’ll be popping by a little more often!
Those pics are awesome! So creative, and so fun. xo
Those pictures are too cute!! We really only took goofy pictures with our first child (dressed him in a godzilla costumes and put him around little houses and cars, and a bunny for Easter sitting in an Easter basket).
Wouldn’t it be cute to have a shot where the girls are playing dress up in your clothes, shoes, jewelry, makeup – and you and hubby walk in looking surprised.
LOL Great pics & Fond Memories being made…
Way cool Bianca. I’m loving your creativity and that you take the time to have a laugh. Because life is not meant to be serious! Amy x
Just happened upon these pics Bianca. Nearly spat out my tea.I’d forgotten about the third one but the image is now firmly back!! Have you reflected on the personality of your kids and the appropriateness of each photo? If they match… then Hazel will be a bundle of trouble when she hits 14!!!
Oh Meredith, she is bundle of trouble NOW!!! I need to come up with an idea for me and the girls… got any? xx
