Project Love: 52/52

It seemed fitting to end this year-long personal photography project with a photo of my little tribe.  I try and get a shot of everyone together each time Sophie comes to stay – usually at least once a month, though we’re hoping to see her more often in 2017. I took this one when she…

Project Love: 51/52

Christmas Day. All of us together (just one missing – Sophie spends Christmas itself with her Mum and then comes to us for a mini-Christmas visit a few days later). Blurry because it’s a phone photo in terrible lighting but I really don’t care because this is us in all of our messy, quirky glory…

Project Love: 50/52

I took this yesterday after we got home from our visit to Santa.  My festive three posing for a photo even though they were hungry and really not in the mood.  I love them for that. I also love them for being completely and utterly unique and feisty and wilful and high-spirited and silly and…

Another late post (see my previous Project Happy post for the reason why!), but I figured it was better late than never. We had Sophie at the weekend as part of the final celebrations for Ella’s week-long birthday.  We put up the Christmas decorations, wrote Christmas cards, went out for dinner, made chocolate orange brownies…

Project Love: 48/52

When your birthday falls in the middle of the week the celebrations tend to get stretched a weekend either side, especially when it’s an important birthday such as turning ten. The fun started on Saturday when I took all three girls plus Ella’s best friend to see ‘Moana’ at the cinema (brilliant film with an…

I can’t believe there are only a few more weeks left of this year and therefore only a small number of #projectlove posts still to come.  I’ve absolutely loved capturing all of these moments of love each week, and looking back over them all there really is quite a variety of images. Some weeks have felt…

I love this photo. The relationship between these two can be so tempestuous – one minute they’re playing happily and giggling together and the next minute they’re fighting like cat and dog, saying mean things to each other and slamming doors. It’s pretty exhausting trying to keep up with where they are with each other…

I love this photo of my tribe.  My husband and our four girls, snuggled blissfully on the sofa together posing for a photo. Looking at it brings back memories from Sunday (which is when this #projectlove post *should* have been published, but we’ll just gloss over that because…life).  The lead-up to this happy, smiley moment…

Project Love: 44/52

On the first day back at school after half term, I woke the girls up at 7am as usual and left them to get dressed while I pottered about making packed lunches and sorting out some washing.  A few minutes later Mimi came over to me saying that she didn’t feel very well and then…

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…
