My First Ever Photoshoot: Claire

A few weeks ago, in a moment of bravery I offered my local friends and followers on Facebook the opportunity to have a free photoshoot with me on location in Cannock Chase during the gorgeous Autumn months whilst the trees are at their most beautiful and dramatic. I know I can capture my own children on camera pretty well…

Project Love: 43/52

Group hug! I’ve mentioned plenty of times before how much the girls love it when their big sister Sophie comes to visit and we’ve been lucky enough to have her with us for almost the whole of half term. I caught this moment of all four of them having a big cuddle together while we…

Project Love: 42/52

I can’t quite believe that there are only ten more weeks left of Project Love.  As I look back over the images I’ve featured so far that have captured ‘Love’ in some way over the last nine and a half months of 2016, my heart feels happy.  They are all so varied and really that’s what…

Project Love: 41/52

The last couple of weeks have been so busy with various things that I didn’t manage to create the time to do last week’s Project Love post.   And now another week has passed already (!) so I’ll be posting two in quick succession.  I’m giving myself some grace on this because, well, I’m human and…

Project Happy: Days 941-950

A photo a day every day, of the things that bring me joy. It’s been a fairly ‘normal’ time recently. School, work and parenting all continuing to be busy in their own uniquely different, wonderfully challenging and (mostly) rewarding ways.  We’ve been making the most of this gorgeous October sunshine whenever we can, getting out…

Project Love: 40/52

Ella has been in a rather grumpy mood for a couple of weeks now and no matter what we do to try and lighten her mood not much seems to be working.  I can’t work out if it’s tiredness from being back at school, problems with friends at school, or hormones – she’s ten in…

Project Love: 39/52

I’ve mentioned before that I love September. There is something absolutely magical about the light at this time of year. The soft, illuminating glow of the late September sunshine, especially in the early morning and late evening, makes it look like everything is bathed in gold and the elongated shadows stretching across the emerald grass…

Project Happy: Days 931-940

A photo a day, every day, of the things that bring me joy. The final third of the month brought with it some very welcome late September sunshine, so we made the most of it as best we could. Here are my moments of happiness over the last ten days…          …
