Me & Mine in the Marvellous Month of May

This month we took a little trip to Camber Sands.  Although some of the logistics were a little tricky (getting there on the three trains and a bus, for example!), we had a glorious time.  It’s been four months since I returned to work full-time and this trip was the first period of more than three days that we’ve spent together.  It was lovely to just relax, spend time with the people – two-legged and four – that I love the most and be an equally hands-on mother to the twins.

I knew that I wanted to take our Me & Mine photographs for this month at the iconic white beaches of Camber Sands.  We spent so much time walking this beautiful expanse of sand, following Josephine-dog’s footprints as she explored her new playground.  It felt like ‘our’ place.

We decided to take these pictures the day before our last evening so that if the first sunset failed us, there would be a back-up option.  I was a little worried that we would need it because as we ventured onto the beach the most dreadful black cloud descended upon us from the distance and we knew that rain was imminent, if not a full-on storm.  But the sun was setting from the opposite direction entirely and it made for the most gorgeous light, so we decided to act fast in the hope of getting even just one picture and astonishingly, the weather held and after letting us take some incredibly atmospheric pictures, even gave us a rainbow to finish up the session.

Can you believe that rainbow?  It felt like it belonged to us.  We had such a marvellous time.

    These are stunning photos, that black/grey sky is just gorgeous. It makes you look like you are in the set of some sort of fantasy film or something. x

    Oh what breathtakingly beautiful photos! Atmospheric is the word for it isn’t it, and that rainbow is the icing on the cake! The boys are as always utterly beautiful (and I’m pleased you’ve discovered The Bunting Tree – they are my downfall when it comes to Pip and fox leggings!!)

    These are absolutely stunning, all of them, the top one is my favourite, the sky, and the colours you’re wearing. It looks like a movie poster for a new Twilight. Just gorgeous xxx #meandmine
