1march10lastday9lastday16lastday5Effie – So much passing through her mind, I feel she often feels overwhelmed right now. These times will pass, it’s all part of the journey.

Josceline - Absolutely stubborn, refuses to stand still for a photo and tells me just one second.

Violet – A pony tail at long last. The kid is super proud. My feelings a split, which way will the hair go.

Abigail – If looks could kill this kid would be locked up by lunch time.

Mini Models

Yesterday I took the kids to the botanic gardens. Their energy levels were going through the roof and they were driving me insane and I wanted to scope out some new locations for my photography clients. Everybody loves the beach, I love the beach but seriously..I just need to step away from the beach for one or two shoots to expand my mind, just a little. The little kids were far too busy running around to stop for photos so I bribed Effie and convinced her to be my model. My model choose her own clothes and did not require any creative direction, she even threw in a bit of teenage attitude towards the end because that’s just what models do!lastday7lastday4lastday6lastday17lastday19

I kicked the kids outside today and moments later we were hit by a massive storm. I love that instead of running back inside afraid of a bit of bad weather my kids did the total opposite and embraced the storm. After all, it was almost dinner time and they were due for a shower so timing was just about perfect. Despite the fact that I am still in deep, deep denial about Abigail turning one I just love the way our wild child is interacting with the big girls and isn’t afraid to go after what she wants. These kids are certainly one crazy bunch.rain2rain1rain7rain12rain8rain13rain16rain17rain10rain6rain4rain5

I feel scattered this week. I have been pushing my own buttons and just going about things in the wrong way. I fear my brain is totally broken. Clarity only comes in the form of my camera and an adventure out of the house. A breath of fresh air is good for the soul.

Effie – growing faster by the day. When did this happen? How is she standing in front of me more a young women then a young girl, wasn’t she just born yesterday
Josceline – Always seeking out creativity. As much as the mess drives me batty it is lovely to see.
Violet – Never standing still, living life in the fast lane..over and over again.
Abigail – Your need to be forever entertained just astounds me. How can somebody so cranky be so darn cute.
and a bonus **
Danielle – crazy haired woman, dragging her four children to the beach. She must be nuts.
