Something I’ve come to realise as I’ve gone through this project is that even though I take many pictures of the happy moments in my days, and post them here on this blog, there are some moments that I don’t manage to capture on camera:  Lola putting her soft arms around my neck and giving me her biggest and best ‘squeezy cuddle’; Mimi whispering to me that I’m the best Mummy in the world; Ella gently taking my face in her hands and giving me one of her rarely-offered kisses; waking up early while the rest of the house is still asleep and having a blissful five minutes all to myself before getting up to start the day; the moment a client realises the real reason behind their issues and take a step forwards towards letting them go…

At first I beat myself up a bit, feeling that I wasn’t doing well enough at the project – I wasn’t giving my all, I wasn’t good enough to capture every single one.

And then I realised that actually, some moments you don’t need to capture on camera because you’ve captured them in your heart.  And that is far more powerful.

Only three more instalments to go now and I’m beginning to try and figure out what the next project will be.  Any suggestions and ideas will be gratefully received!
