Take a family photo this weekend



While Isabelle is enjoying Paris this weekend me and my family are at our home in Skåne, Sweden. It has started to get a lot chillier and I really like it. We started this morning with a family photo out in the field next to our house.  And that is my weekend tip for you all: Go out and take a photo of yourself with your family. The group photo is really underestimated I think.  And it does NOT have to look like the ordinary family photo that you take at the local photography studio. No, no. Make it more fun. Use your cellphone, a photo booth or your camera on a tripod (like we did). And go to a place that makes you feel good. Put on your favorite dress or lipstick if that makes you feel nice about yourself. It does not take long and seriously: how many pictures do you have of the whole family together? Not many I bet!

(If you’re not with family this weekend consider it your self-portrait challenge).

Go for it and if you do I would love to see the results. Just email me!

    such a fun idea!

    I’m visiting one brother and his family an hour away tomorrow – so I’ll take a photo and post it or send it to you!

    THANKS for the motivation! challenge accepted.

    WHERE did that pretty, bright couch come from that you’re sitting on in the photo?

    Sunny: That sounds great! The sofa used to be my grandfathers. We love it. It is a fold-out bed. Viola uses it a lot when she is playing house. She uses it as a building blocks to. here it is again http://dosfamily.com/?p=1073

    Här är vårt försök (ett av många, alla ungefär lika bra…): http://sofia.pulp.se/post/182857750/dosfamily-challange-the-whole-family-in-one-photo. Vi tog oss inte ut utan tog kortet i hela familjens favorittillhåll – soffan!
