I am SO behind with blogging at the moment (this is a good sign, it means I’m busy taking photos, but I want to have time to share them with you!).
In a few days time I will be taking a hard-earned break, having a couple of weeks off to unwind with my family and friends over the festive season. I hope that you will all be doing the same. I’m a big Christmas fan; the romantic in me just loves the twinkly lights, dark nights, classic films and of course the food and booze! So what better time to have time to relax and take stock before a new year gets under way?
Before I sign off though, I wanted to share a few photos from a recent ‘dear to my heart’ shoot. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but humour me while I wax lyrical about my fab friends. I am incredibly lucky to have a circle of friends who keep me sane. We all have toddlers, which means that while we hang out / drink tea / eat cake, the kids can play together (with a bit of toddler-style bickering thrown in from time to time). Aside from our weekly child orientated get togethers where we compare child-raising notes, we also hang out socially. Ya know, as grown-ups. We’re all lucky to have lovely supportive husbands so we have monthly nights out for wine, chat and general merriment.
When you have a lovely circle of friends, it’s nice to be able to do something for them from time to time. I can’t bake for toffee (or, indeed, cake), so my contribution to our circle of skills has to be photography. This means that I occasionally manage to fit in a little family shoot for them.
A couple of weeks ago I hung out with Sam and her family on a Saturday morning. I was served bacon sandwiches and frothy coffee, and had lots of ‘help’ from the girls as I set the lights up. Then we had some fun getting a few shots for the family album. So, finally I get to the point… a few of my favourites from the Fab Folds Five…
