Family Snaps

Trying to pose a 14 month old child for a photo is virtually impossible!  I must take thousands of photos and hope to catch that perfect shot...every now and again I get it right.

Easter Sunday The Mr, Master Jack, my Mum, my Sister and I headed out for a picnic to a the Peter Faust Dam in Proserpine.

There's plenty of picnic tables and BBQ's, great open spaces for the kids to run (although it is by the water so you need to keep an eye on them) and areas to pop in your boat or jet ski.  We have none of those water toys so we had to make fun with our picnic and bubble blowing.  I take bubbles everywhere because they are always engaging to kidlets.

Below you will see pictures of the beauty of the location, and it is breathtaking and well worth a look if visiting the Whitsundays or Proserpine area.

However, it's the photo I snapped of Master Jack and his Nana (my Mum) that is my dearest.  Two of my favourite people in the world.

Do you have a favourite family happy snap that makes your heart sing?


  1. Don't we all! Photos are worth 1,000 words!

  2. I'll say Melissa. I'm a happy snapper myself, but every now and again there's a photo that definitely stands out! Thanks for commenting :)

  3. Cool pics, shot with Mothers Love! Thanks for sharing. Love the old "polaroid" looking pics. How'd you achieve that look/style of shot?


  4. Hi Lina, thank you! I used an application called "Instagram". It's an iPhone application.

    I took the pic using my normal camera and then transferred it over to my iPhone from my computer and changed it using Instagram. I have included the link for you :) I think you can use it just on a PC too.

    Let me know how you go, but it's lots of fun!

  5. Cool, thanks Belinda. Pretty clever!
