So where have I been? Just here, balancing the mummy and photographer thing as best as I can
August is a crazy month around here. We’ve had so many birthday parties (seriously FIVE the past weekend), plus Amelia’s dedication. There’s been school things on, everyone’s been sick so I had to be a mum first again, and updates here got put to the back of the to-do list. Anyway, we still have a few more birthday parties to get to over the next two weeks, but it’s all fun, fun, fun.
These will go in our bedroom. I get to lay my eyes on my gorgeous kiddos first thing every morning. Reminds me how lucky I am every day – awwww.
Miss Millie’s own little gallery in her bedroom. I love this one, and just ordered the frames today so can’t wait for them to arrive.
And this last one is still waiting of photos to put in it. I have ideas, I just need Melbourne’s weather to co-operate with me now.
About a month ago I visited Angus at his home to photograph him as an almost-one-year-old. This past weekend I had the pleasure of photographing his first birthday party. His mum Nicole did such a fantastic job with all the little details. It was a fun afternoon, I’m sure he had a ball. He was totally exhausted by the end. Here is the start of his sneak peeks – there will be more to follow over the next few days.
Way back in January, and I think on the other (family) blog I did a photo a day challenge, adding a photo every day for the whole month. Well that was the aim, but a certain little miss and her very early arrival caused a bit of a hickup half way through the month and that was that. I loved that way of documenting our lives though, so thought I’d share a little of our family life over at this blog… a little peep inside our home. Here are a few little moments that made up our rainy, wet Friday. (This one’s a bit Amelia heavy, but I’ll do some more with the boys soon).
[who's bed is it anyway?]
She does this adorable little thing… sucking her two fingers, and then holding that hand in her mouth with the other hand. It makes me giggle.
She’s teething and a bit unwell, so she was just not a happy girl today. She just would not crack a smile for me…
… but then Ethan walked in and she just lit up for him.
I enjoyed doing this, so I hope you enjoy seeing them too as there will be more.
Happy, happy, smiley boy! About 10 mins later those balloons were up up and away Lucky he was still happy with his truck. He’s just the spunkiest little man, and I just adore the way Cath dressed him! No wonder he’s a spunky little monkey, his mummy is over here Lots of yummy stuff.
