May portraits


So it's been a little while since I've posted over on here, I think I've been so busy trying to get my photography website (GO see it here though!) in order that any spare time to sit at the computer has been consumed by that. But it's done and I desperately want to get back to blogging a little more regularly. I share photos over on Instagram still daily, but I find it so hard narrowing it down and just picking one. I often have so many favourites from a 'shoot' so sharing them here is a great way of making sure they all get some love! 

So here are some portraits from May. It was a good month.

A couple of weeks spent recovering. It was only two weeks of hospital, but it feels like it's taken this whole month to readjust. I guess the shock of suddenly being in, of the tiredness and travelling to and fro really threw me, not to mention coming to terms with it all emotionally. But we're so glad to be home and our weeks and weekends are generally spent close to home, exploring and settling into new routines and of course welcoming Spring.

It's hard to know exactly when I took each of these photos as the last few weeks has just disappeared into a blur of hospital and not much else. I had my camera for some of those moments but the strain of being present in hospital and rushing between children becomes too much to record and archive it here.

So here marks the last few weeks, of being in, then getting home from hospital. Healing walks to try and appreciate the right now, rejuvenating afternoons at home playing and of course sweet moments of brother embraces to make all the bits in between more bearable.

I have no idea if I'm up to date, have skipped ahead or am behind in weeks, but that sort of sums up this time really. All over the place and trying to find our feet.

A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2016

So these two weeks have been eventful, a trip to Devon, a stay in hospital, a lost tooth and a different sink to bathe in. It's the start of half term and I think we could all do with a break and a rest. Things rarely go as planned and these few weeks have been a true example of that. I'm hoping that with the passing of the weeks and the arrival of Spring we can start to clear those winter cobwebs, start afresh and embrace the change.

A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2017

Last week was spent hibernating inside with a sick baby, trying our hardest to keep the feeds down and recover from this latest horrible cold. Theo spent the week building up to his birthday in a state of excitement that may have verged on too much a few times!

A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2017


A double once again, but hopefully I'm all caught up and back on schedule. These past two weeks have flown by, but have seen us take a little trip to the seaside and wonder at the beauty of the beach in winter time. We've mainly just been spending time at home too, which is something to tell the truth I've never been very good at, always needing to be busy and off out somewhere, but for once I feel content to stay at home and just be. That includes enjoying the quiet moments of a bath in the sink, the early morning pink glow on a face peeping through the curtains and a just woken up baby face in bed.

Oh and in the spirit of trying to include ourselves in the frame a little more, here's my favourite sibling, father and mother portraits too.

June portraits



Whoops, so it's been a busy month or so and once again I've neglected this little blog. We've done a little bit more travelling now with Rohan, and we're feeling more confident with his care now that he's off the oxygen in the day. Over June we visited my sister, had half term and of course have been busy with various hospital appointments, and to be honest my camera hasn't been picked up a whole lot. I gave up with the idea of doing a portrait a week pretty much in January when Rohan was born, as our time and attention was obviously elsewhere, but I do love still love the idea of capturing them and looking back over the year. So instead I've been at least trying to collect together a few of my favourite portraits from the past month, every month, which hopefully will still show how they've changed and grown over the year. These are just a few of my favourite moments, the boys playing on the bed after a bath together, Theo in his element out in the fields and with a puppy and of course quiet moments at home. I hope as well as capturing each individual changing I can document and look back on the relationship developing between these two boys. Oh I do love them so!
