GIVEAWAY – 40x50cm Canvas From Canvas Factory **ENTRIES NOW CLOSED**

Most people know that I love taking photos.
Most people know that I love taking photos of family.
When I was asked to host a giveaway for a canvas I was given the opportunity to order one too.
Do you think I could find a decent family photo to print??
So we had to take some!
This can sometimes be a painful process
There will always be someone who doesn’t want to.
Someone not in the mood for standing/sitting
Someone not in the mood for listening
Someone not in the mood for cooperating
You get the picture
Chances are you have probably been in the same situation!
I’ve learnt a few things too…
Don’t let it bother you,
Let everyone do what they do
Just let the camera click click click.
I ended up with some very cool photos
And one that was perfect for printing up as a canvas.
The whole ordering process was less pain than the actual snapping of the photo!
The photo I chose was one that tells a story
One that showcases us, as a family.
Now for the even harder task
Of finding a place for it to hang!!
So how would you like your own 40x50cm canvas, including free delivery???
All you have to do is leave a comment, on this post, telling me your dream location for a family photo shoot.
Be creative, be fun!

    I know for a fact that I would deffinantly love to have a family photo on the moon or mars. While on the moon I would be sitting on a unicorn, while the family petted the unicorn. In the back drop you would see earth and heaps of Stars.

  12. My absolute dream location for a family photo would be in England when its snowing as my mum lives there and its always years between when we get to see each other. It would be the most incredible experience ever and the snow would look so pretty in the photos :)

  13. Dream location for my partners family photo would be having 4 generations standing in a field of tulips as they are Dutch ..
    Thank you for the chance xx

  14. My ideal photoshoot is a grafitti'd back street... Doesn't sound like much, and I would never have given this answer a month ago, but since we got a family photo shoot done with our 13 week old son, couldn't imagine having it anywhere else! The colours are amazing, and I can't wait to get enlargements or a canvas from the shoot :)

  16. dream location.... in a big flower field under a stunning rainbow

    So many awesome ideas already listed. I would have to choose our own home, it is where all our memories worth remembering are made -

  18. Dream location would be the beach.. the kids could have fun and the adults romantic, wind whistling in our ears, sun beaming on our backs.. Relaxation and fun, creates gorgeous natural photos..

    My dream family photoshoot would be in an exotic island location, amongst the natural ambience and landscapes.

  20. We have have 5 kids ranging from 16 to 6 months and we are a Brady bunch would love to get a family shoot done collating them together to look like the Brady bunch. :)

    They say a photo stops a moment from running away - so I'd love to capture my boys at their favourite place - the beach, with my husband and I, having a family hug.
