I understand it has been over 2 months since my last post but sometimes life just gets in the way, right?
In October 2016 I was asked to capture beauty of newborn Ella. At just 1 week old she was already interested in the camera and kept looking around to see what was going on.
This week I was asked to photograph her again. Celebrating just 6 months of life and she is already picking up so many skills! This gorgeous little girl sat so well while I photographed away making precious memories for the whole family.
Yesterday marked the 6 month anniversary of the birth of my little nephew. The thing I love most about babies growing up is the crazy amount of special moments you can get away with celebrating. As an adult you have a birthday every year, you might get a new job every couple of years, buying your first house, having your first child.
As a baby everything deserves a celebration. We celebrate when you are a week old, a month, six months, a year. It definitely doesn’t stop there. We have smiles, laughs, rolling, sitting, crawling, grabbing, eating, walking and the list goes on. All of which happens in the space of one very quick year. In fact more seems to happen in that one little year than it will in the 80 to follow. Isn’t that something to think about?
Saturday’s are supposed to be the regular persons day off. Nothing makes me more excited than having the chance to get out with my camera, especially when it is to photograph the greatest love between two people or the sheer joy that can radiate from a child playing. This year I can only wish for more opportunities to use my Saturday’s off to do the things I love most. Work isn’t work when you love it, right?!
So I just realised by downloading an app I can now blog from my phone! This is exciting for me as it means all those phone shots I take now have a chance of getting online 🙂 It also means I will post alot more often as I don’t have to sit down and plan blog time. It can happen whenever and wherever 😁 Enjoy my new found freedom…
Isn’t new life wonderful? So sweet, innocent and pure. To think that when a baby is born, 9 months before it did not exist. It grew from two single cells, into a living, breathing human being. A very dependant human being but a human nevertheless. To think that something so complex can simply just grow in a matter of just 40 weeks. It still amazes me how life works and if I get too distracted I will probably start writing an essay right here about it rather than showing you these beautiful photographs…
Have you ever wandered what keeps humanity from tearing itself apart? Could it be the innocence of a child, that stops us in our feat to destroy the world. Children have the most beautiful souls. Their eyes remind us of a simpler life, when all that mattered was what colour shoes would look best with that dress, or if your friend had finished dinner yet so you could go out to play. Children stop us from being vultures. We ensure that we behave civilisied whilst in their company. We play their games, read them fantasies, believe in their dreams. Without children, humanity would cease to imagine, cease to believe.
