Before we go any further, if you are my husband STOP READING NOW. And if by any chance you know my husband you must solemnly swear you won’t tell him about this post. Are we done? Ok cool! I am honestly so excited to share this post with you. My husband is the worst person in the whole world for buying gifts for, he’s totally non-materialistic which is cool, but err…. a mare to buy for. So, given a bit of a prod from Truprint I thought I’d come up with something a bit more personal and make a special Father’s Day photo for him from the kids. I waited until we had a (slightly more photogenic than my home) day out at Mersea Island with the kids and with the stealth skills of a ninja with an iPhone, sent him off to get chips while I got the kids to pose.
What you need:
The only prep I did for this was to cut out some letters to spell We Love Dad. You will also need a large photo frame to put your finished pictures in.
How I did it:
So, you may have noticed that there’s an awful lot more pictures of my son in this than there is of my daughter. There’s no favouritism here, what actually happened was that she really liked the letters and she’s one so she wanted to play with them and tear them up. Less than awesome. My son could be trusted to hold them and by some miracle didn’t pull a daft face in every single picture. I got as many pictures with my daughter as possible but if you do try this with your kids you might want to make extra letters up just in case they get over excited and tear some. Also, as always, I’m advising that you prep in advance, your kids will not want to watch you cut out letters and frankly it’s going to dig into your stealth ninja photography time.
All my photos were printed out at Truprint before being popped into a frame.
