Week 16 of 52


I love the light in our bathroom especially on a sunny evening. I think the frosted glass window softens the light nicely and it always inspires me to get my camera out.

Here are my bathing beauties:



Side note: I really need to sort her fringe out!

Bonus sibling shot:  This is them playing 'Ring a Ring a Roses' on my bed before their bath, look angelic don't they?, don't be fooled- 80% of the time they are shouting at each other.

Week 15 of 52


I follow quite a few mum bloggers and photographers online and whilst I am very aware that the images they upload provide only a carefully edited version of their lives I do find myself being influenced by this idyllic vision of motherhood.  I have found in recent weeks that I have been preoccupied with attempting to recreate visions I have in my mind and not noticing or recording the reality of my experience.

So this week, I thought I would inject some realism!

Haydy: This is what happens when I take his doo doo (pacifier) off him.

Marla: I can't even remember what this was about, these tantrums happen about 13 times a day at the moment

I think it's part of the mama survival instinct (and also the fact that these are my children and I know that they are not in any real distress) that I actually find these images amusing.

Bonus sibling shot: I think there might be some truth to the cliche about the younger sibling being more likely to play the joker

Here are this weeks pics,

Marla: Taken over Abinger Roughs, shortly after both of them sat on molehills and threw mud everywhere

Haydy: I should probably cut that hair soon before it starts bugging him

Week 13 of 52

Hi again,

Marla: I love the evening light in our main bedroom when it's been a sunny day.  Unfortunately this is usually around the kiddos bath time and when they are at their most crazy/fun/volatile but I did manage to capture this split second of calm.


Bonus sibling shot!:  They didn't let me in on the joke
