Sometimes you want to take photos of people and not share them with the whole world. If you blog then you have to be a bit creative with it. I came up with a few ideas over a weekend away with my best girlfriends from Uni, they are amazing, beautiful women, but not all keen to be all over the internet. I totally respect that, being mysterious has its allure as you will see.
This was an incredible weekend, I would go so far as to say a retreat, we met at a cottage in Cambridgeshire, with amazing food, drink and company and we didn’t leave once, it was an amazing catch up – we talked and listened, we laughed, cried, hugged, celebrated births and birthdays, commiserated over losses, danced, shared tips, set goals, we put the the world to rights.
I returned a new woman, but more on that in another post, and more of the cottage itself in another post, instead I want to focus on Katch Up. It’s a way to share photos without the whole world seeing. It’s simple to join, it creates a pretty timeline, which I love as it is really Pinteresty. We stayed in a beautiful cottage which wouldn’t look out of place on Pinterest!
There are all my arty shots, but below that are all my portraits of my stunning friends which I can look back on in years to come. We’ve been friends for nearly 20 years and meeting yearly like this for at least five.
I love that I managed to capture them making Pimms with a tea cup measure!
Now I can add simply add their emails in Katch Up from my email account and easily share all the shots with them. Katch Up is also a really nice way to keep an online scrapbook of my memories. It’s so easy and intuitive to use. So I think even my Dad will like it. More on using it to share my Brother’s wedding shots in another post.
I love the arty shots, I love the glimpses, but I want to see my friends smiley faces too, which is where Katch Up comes in. We have already shared a few pics in our What’s App group, another great way to stay connected, but I think my huge collection of over 100 snaps would take too long to share on What’s App!
I will leave you with some more shots which I think will make you wish you could see more, of this amazing house and our amazing weekend.
The first thing I saw when I woke up in my perfect cottage bedroom, after a cup of tea and putting the world to rights with my roomy A, was more of the girls having breakfast in the sun.
Later I spied these two chatting from another tea lit window…
And I woke up from my post Pimms and afternoon tea Saturday siesta to hear giggling and people gathering for a BBQ under the trees.
It’s nice to have managed to share some memories really quickly and easily. And for the recipients to know they can keep going back to them on Katch Up.
Some little windows into my weekend. This is the first time we have got together in the school summer holidays, it made a world of difference to me. Hope you are having a lovely holiday and managing a bit of me time.
