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.
10 years on we are still doing it and the latest one, above, needed some serious tree making skills!
Our ‘Elves on the Shelves’ photo in 2019 was a lot of fun
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.
