Week 11 Round-Up #PerfectAndProud

Welcome back to our weekly round-up with myself, Kim, Sarah and Victoria. We are over-whelmed with how many of you have supported our hashtag, over 5500 photos in just 11 weeks!

As much as we love all of your photos, this week we have particularly enjoyed seeing your outdoor shots and reading all about your adventures with the little ones. It is becoming increasingly difficult to narrow it down each week, but we all agreed that these four were particularly beautiful.

Sarah’s favourite this week, which she chose all the way from sunny Cyprus, was this one from Emily and Indiana. There is nothing nicer than seeing a Mama walking hand in hand with her children, and this one is lovely. I particularly love Emily’s caption, we all have days when we feel fed up, especially when the kids are playing up, so it was lovely to see that we are all in the same boat.

Kim’s favourite was from Mel Farnell who shared the most stunning shot of her daughter at Ellesmere. Mel has the most gorgeous Instagram and her children are utterly adorable!

Victoria’s favourite was from one of my best blogging buddies, Life is Knutts. Gemma is one of the nicest, most supportive and funniest people I have ever met and her Instagram is equally wonderful. This photo is just stunning, and with the most incredible view!

And last but not least, my favourite from the week, another gorgeous shot from Fran Higham. This isn’t the first time that one of Fran’s photos have featured in our round-up, and I’m certain it won’t be the last. She is such a talented photographer and the way in which she captures her children never ceases to amaze me.

So there you have it, another week in pictures, please show some love to all of our favourites, and thank you all so much for joining us. We will be back same time next week with four more of our favourites! Don’t forget to follow myself, Sarah, Kim and Victoria to see if you have been featured.

    While all of these pictures were beautiful, I must say Frans was my favorite! This makes me wish I took my camera to the park with the little ones today. I wont listen to my hubby again when he says leave the camera at home!

    These pics look like they are from some book on princess and fairy tale and dragons and knights for kids.
    I just adore this kind of pics. Tried my hand on a few of my 1.5 year old knight. But these are on another level.
