Sunday Mornings

It’s been so long since I’ve written here and so many things have happened in the past twelve months. Many moments have passed by but the little things still stand out.
How she’s grown & now loves the same things as her brother & sisters. Minecraft.
The way she giggles.
How her fringe falls in her face.
Her long lashes attached to those big brown eyes.
Her love of Skye from Paw Patrol and Grover.
The way she jumps on me every morning & gives me the biggest hug followed by “I love you mum”
in the most matter-of-fact way.

Lucas:   Every time I cut your hair I try to give you a 1D cut but you won’t have it.

Soph:   I remember a time when this didn’t come some easily.

Evie:   Pure joy.

Charli:   Sometimes I’m reminded how little you are. It doesn’t come so easily for you. Tired.

I hate using the word ‘busy’. I have an aversion to it. It’s an adjective that really doesn’t say much & it often feels like an excuse for not getting stuff done. But I feel exhausted. I’ve been cramming a fair bit of photography in over the last couple of weeks – a wedding, a christening, a newborn session… on top of the every day stuff – you know – the kid kind.

So yesterday I took two of my kids to a private lesson with me to be models for my student. Gosh it was nice to just play with my camera. To share some knowledge & enjoy the moment. The kids picked flowers (& fought a little) & loved the sun. Win. Win.

It’s such an amazing feeling to be part of a wedding. I can’t wait to share some of the photographs from Naomi & Ryan’s special day on my website. Keep an eye out for a blog post within the next couple of weeks.

Soph:   Always the lady in the dress Nanny made for you.
Evie:  This is you ‘posing’.
Charli:   Your favourite pastime is picking flowers everywhere you go.

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2014.”

Lucas:   Entranced by Barbie’s Mermaidia.  Shhhhh don’t tell anyone.

Soph:   Staring at the television on a rainy day with bath crayons as face paint. Resourceful.

Evie:   In her singlet ready for bed.

Charli:   The side of you that people rarely see but happens oh so often.

Photography: Boston at 10 days {newborns}

Boston was a delight to photograph. Content and sleepy. His parents were just as lovely (and probably just a little sleepy too as we all are when there is a newborn around).

Happily cradled in his mum & dad’s arms, he was no trouble at all. He reminded me of my son who was always happily snuggling, sleeping & growing in those first months of life. Such a precious time.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, especially those of you who have little ones experiencing the joy for the first time.
