Smile For The Camera – My Captured Moment

It was fancy dress day at the girls’ nursery and pre-school a couple of months ago, so as any mummy (or daddy!) would naturally assume, letting your kids get all dressed up in pretty fancy dress as fairies and princess would be a whole lot of fun!

Well, it was at first, but again as a mummy, I unsurprisingly wanted to capture the happy and fun moment with a picture or two for prosperity and to indulge them with one day as we sit together as adults reminiscing over old photos.

Not sure the girls were as enthused about the photo shoot as I was though.

Just look at those faces of sheer boredom and disdain!! Trying to get them to smile for the camera was futile!

I gave up after that one.

But I still love the shot!

    Ha ha Steph I know those faces!! I get them so much too. “No more pictures mum”. Love their costumes, they both look so cute – if a little annoyed. Thank you so much for linking up to #MyCapturedMoment
