I’ve been a little quiet on here lately but there’s LOTS going on over on the facebook page! So why not pop over and hit the ‘like’ button so you are getting all the new updates? I would louuuuuuuuve you for it;)
Did you see this one?? It’s the beautiful Fliss and Steve and there’s a little preview album on facebook here. x
its week 21 and its getting pretty hard to keep finding new ways of photographing the boy! (but guess that’s the whole point – so that i push my self to find new ways to photograph!)
In week 21 the boy decided to act his age – ie. join the ‘terrible twos’! There has been many arguments this week and lots of wanting to shout and scream at him…but then i called my mum instead;) “just keep strong, keep showing him you are the boss” and by the end of the week it was much better… i may have won the battle, but im sure the war is not over yet.
So this week I tried to have a few activities inbetween where we could calm down and do something he really enjoys – like water play in the sink:)
We also started potty training (on the happy days!) and so far its ok…. i’ve only taken his nappy of when at home and not pushing him too much as he’s still not totally aware when things are happening but im easing him into it.
Sunday afternoon, though, I just needed to get him out of the house(!) so we met with a couple of friends in the park for a walk and cake – good finish to the week:)
This week it’s been week1 of our epic 2 week Orlando holiday. I’ve never been before – used to live in the US so been lots of other places, but never Orlando. We’ve done 7 parks in as many days and it’s SO HOT here -my Scandinavian genes can’t cope:)
(but still very happy to be avoiding the rubbish current British weather!)
But the boy is LOVING it. He’s so much like his dad. Fast rides and lots of water play! It’s great that he’s tall for his age, as it’s taking him just over the minimum hight restrictions for the kiddie rides:)
He’s seen his favourite Disney characters, seen the killer whales, been riding roller coasters, sung with Barney (what an annoying dude!!) and been on water slides “all on my own mummy!”.
Not sure how much he’ll remember after but right here, right now, he’s having a great time!
as we are off on holiday on Saturday I’m trying to round things up and make sure everything is double backed up – including my personal pictures!
I love taking photos on my iphone4 – and now with Instagram, its even better! I’ve always got my phone on me so its very easy to snap those little moments that would have been lost if you had to wait and get out the big camera:)
When looking at these pictures i feel proud. He’s such a lovely little man. He’s good at lots of things, and he takes pride in what he does. He loves his friends and he loves playing with his toys. He’s got a fantastic imagination and he’s just strait up handsome! Dont get me wrong – he can make me wanna rip my hair out and just sit down and cry, but its all part of it all right? But most of the time I just wanna hold on to him till he says “mummy im stuck!”
Here’s a little round up of April with a few of the shots from the past 4 weeks… stay tuned for the holiday pictures! As Tobias says “we’re going to America on a BIG airplane to see Mickey Mouse – he lives in a castle! and we are gonna see whales, and penguins and cars in a pond (not sure about the last one..!)
This was my first wedding of 2012. And it was a beauty! Amazing people, amazing church, amazing venue. The only thing that was not amazing; was the weather! Hard core rain all. day. long. But Ali and Ben was great and not afraid of getting the wellies and umbrellas out:)
We started with the girls getting ready at a relative’s house in Clifton, Bristol. It was a relaxed morning with the most calm bride I’ve ever seen, and the wonderful Ellie Jones (cardiff) did the girls hair while they got ready.
We then got off to the grand Woodlands Church in Clifton where Ben was waiting. It was a lovely and funny ceremony by Pastor Nigel Savage.
After a few shots at the church it was off across the Somerset country side to the beautiful Coombe Lodge in Bagdon.
We managed a few rainy shots outside but had to make a run for it when turned torrential!
It was such a beautiful day and I’m so grateful for Ali and Ben to have chosen me as their photographer.
I know they’ll have a wonderful life together:)
Here’s a few of the photos from the day while i finish of the rest for them. Hope you’ll like them:)
