So this is us! The Moores love a bit of Christmas and what’s not to like?! Presents, turkey, jumpers, decorations, mince pies, cheesy music, awkward family photos… The list is endless! So I decided to put all of my favourite Yuletide family moments from snazzy jumpers to Christmas cats together in a blog.
Nearly 10 years on we are still doing it and the latest one, above, was our ‘Elves on the Shelves’ photo!
This one above was the first photo which included our cat. Oh, and I always dreamt of Christmas lasers so what better time to feature them.
For 2017, Hayley made us all a stocking each for the fireplace. And of course, we were the presents!
Ah, 2016 was interesting – as you can see Dexter wasn’t too impressed with this tradition he had been born into. Give it time, son, and you will soon embrace it.
This photo was taken a few months after Dexter was born so of course it just HAD to be the nativity scene! Lani was a great donkey but I’m still finding that damn straw in our house years later.
We went with a snow globe theme for 2014. I decided to buy the outfits and spend time editing a globe into the photo after we made absolutely everything for the 2013 effort
This was the most fun to photograph. I got hold of a few boxes and photographed Lani first. I then shot a photo of me before wrapping the same box again with Hayley in it. We laughed all weekend with this shoot and I still smile when I see it.
Our first Christmas with a daughter and a home-made Christmas tank top (those decorations on the tank top can actually be taken off and placed on a real tree as decorations). It was a lot of fun to shoot but if you look closely enough, you can see how tired we are as we hadn’t slept for 4 months!
Our first Christmas photo as a married couple. Thinking about it, I never meant to make this into a series but after this shot, so many people asked me to carry on and do another. Now come October each year I cry thinking about the pressure I’ve put on our family!
When I am not enjoying cheesy Christmas cards, I work for Internet Security company ESET in Bournemouth as a Cyber Security Specialist. Find out more about my real job at my other website www.jakemoore.uk.
