Normally my blog posts are clients (unless I can persuade the family to model!) however at the start of 2014 I was lucky to join a photographers' group - My love, My life - where the aim is for us to take some time out and to shoot images of our own children to capture our own memories :), exactly as we love to for our clients.
As you all know life flies by and it gets even quicker when you have children, with hardly a moment to think! As a photographer, I have a camera in my hand a lot of the time and I am afraid our children are very camera aware because of it! so it's harder to capture them relaxed and unawares which is my preferred style.
My husband and I have three children, a 14 yr old boy, 5 yr old girl and 3 yr old boy so quite different. The youngest has looked so much like his older brother since very young so seeing them together with 10 years' difference brings home just how much time has passed already. As for our daughter she makes her presence known! :)
Planning time to photograph them for this initial post has already made me think about other ideas and I am looking forward to capturing images for their childhood albums (they each have an album to put images in from birth to 18!).
So to this initial post - it was half-term and we had a quiet week at home, these images are some of the things the kids did, painting a doll's house, puzzles and of course the computer! However some of my favourites are those at the park - a beautiful sunny day (if cold!). I hope you enjoy and then please do look to a fellow photographer and her blog entry about her family as well - Lucy Lou Photography
