#Living Arrows – Too Busy Living To Point And Shoot

Welcome to another week of #LivingArrows. I have barely taken any pictures of the kids this week, go ahead and slap my wrist as I must obviously be a terrible Mother far too self consumed to concentrate on her children, that or I’ve been far too busy actually spending time entertaining my munchkins rather than spending time taking snap shots. Take your pick, I know for sure which the answer is.

I am therefore resorting to ‘pinching pictures’ from the hubbys phone for this weeks #LivingArrows contribution. I am actually fairly impressed by these photos given that they were taken with a phone, a phone that hasn’t got a piece of fruit engraved onto the back that is! Perhaps the World isn’t all about Apple after all?

    I think I’ve said it before, you have such a lovely garden!! I’m with you this week, having far too much fun to pick up the camera. I managed a couple of out of focus shots yesterday…. We have the pool out, I’d much rather be splashing about with the little ones than on the sidelines. Fab photos given its from hubbies phone! Enjoy half term lovely!!

      This garden is actually my inlaws, our garden is great too thankfully. We are lucky with our gardens thanks x

    Great photos. Love the family shot – jealous that you get them – we still don’t have one apart from one i photobombed that I was taking of the 2 of them!

    (I’m a Samsung phone lover – great photos on those – better than Apple imo)

    Lovely photos, and I agree I really love your garden! 🙂 I think sometimes photo photos are best for family shots as they tend to be more instant don’t they x

      I think spontanous photos are actually the best x

    Family life is awesome isn’t it! Photos are great, regardless of what took the, I take a lot on my phone too – also not an iphone! Thanks for sharing!

    Lol Rachel! I love your photos or should I say your husband’s photos this week. The family selfie on the beach is ace x #livingarrows

    I think it’s great that you’ve been too busy having fun to take photos! I’ve had times like that and they’re always the times I wish I’d captured though but you can’t be in them and take them at the same time can you? I think I need a photographer to just follow me around and photograph my life! Great pictures, you can tell how much fun you’ve all been having and that’s the most important thing!

    A blessing in disguise I think, these are lovely photos! Especially the family selfie, we’ve tried a couple of times but it always ends up all double chins and squinting!!

    I’m with you there! I seem to have taken so few photos of the kids recently. I’d rather be focusing on them 🙂

      exactly, focus on what actually matters x

    That family photo is gorgeous and I can completely forgive you for not taking photos – better to be in the moment than taking photos of it! x
