Long overdue. We we there in June! I’m definitely focusing on family photos and creating family albums in the next few months. Baby girl getting ready for her first swim. Is there anything cuter than thumb-sucking in a baby?
Just shy of her first birthday and she still doesn’t even have as much hair as she was born with. Ah, french plaits and pigtails seem so far away.
Ok an entirely made up word to describe the yummy cakes we had to end our lovely picnic meal to celebrate our 6 year anniversary. Food photography is so new to me. There is a surprising amount to learn to take a pretty picture of yummy food. Luckily l have the talented Allison Jacobs of http://www.allisonjacobsphotography.com to help me out with some tips and advice.
Shot through the (closed) window of a moving car. Should have got the hubs to stop. Some people like the picture perfect pretty scenes of Scotland with the lochs, the trees, the heather on the mountains. I like that too but my heart skips when l come across moody scenes like this. The light in Scotland, l just can’t adequately describe it to someone who has never been here. It’s a photographers dream and worst nightmare rolled into one.
It’s quite a feat getting the two of you out and taking the pushchair, changing bag and my camera, but it’s worth it. l need to do it more often because l love capturing these carefree moments.
My daughter found her feet. Now all she wants to do is run. But sometimes, just sometimes, she wants the security of holding onto one of my fingers. It’s so bittersweet.
Life has been so busy lately that l have barely had a chance to pick up my camera, let alone post to this blog. I’ve definitely been missing it. l get withdrawal symptoms when l don’t shoot regularly. l guess it’s my ‘me’ time.
With the weather getting duller and 2 uncooperative models, l have been practicing some food photography. It’s not easy and if l was to pursue doing this, it requires a lot more planning that l currently give it.
We went exploring and had a picnic in the car (it was a bit too windy to sit outside). l think he is wondering where daddy is in this picture.
