The snow has been and gone, as fast as it came.  A week ago we had clouds of snow & sledging and shooting (I do everywhere I can) was part of our Sunday.  My version of a snow angel, otherwise how can I get away with making a child lie in the snow..

Looking back

We live a life that is constantly rushing and striving forward.  We have the world at our fingertips with the technology that we can access in a second.  That’s great but I often think that it comes at a cost.  I don’t think we stop often enough and just exist.  This week has been a draining one & I’ve found comfort in looking backwards to last summer.  The days were long and we spend so much in my sisters garden.  The kids were unplugged from iPads and played, as my sister and I had as children.  There is so much more pleasure to me in being outside, soaking up the light, instead of absorbing it from a blue screen.  My nephews remind me of the fun of being little.  Something that I’m holding onto right now.

So this is what happens when you are photographing more than one child on a shoot.  The others find the body paint pens & draw on each other!  Still going in a different direction sometimes has my favourite results.  Followed by a very deep bath!

the places you’ll go

Being little means you’ll grow up. Dr Seuss explains this path best in one of my favourite books. Finn is getting older by the photograph… he’s going to be visiting those places very soon. It feels like yesterday he was a baby but his future is so exciting too!
