Making the most of my loan of a 50mm lens before I made myself return it to its rightful owner (lest I run off to Paris with it!!). I had a hankering to capture some 'straight' portraits of my trio, trying to peer a little further into their adorable souls and capturing their essence.
Well, I tried. They find it hard not to smile, heehee!
My fave? Those flyaway whispy bits...
Now, that's a look. A rare moment of still and serious.
The 'ooh' face.
A face, a stage, a sound I never want to forget.
Whenever anything of interest captures him (or just when he wants to insert himself into the conversation) he pipes up with a little 'Ooh!' accompanied by the cutest face in the universe :)
Just being cute, kicking back after dinner, rockin' the backwards cap :)
Project 52: A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.
More highlights from the week that was....
|The 'what's up, Mum?' face.I get it a lot. He is so expressive. Did I mention I seriously love this kid?? Gotta blog|
pics of his first birthday bash.... it's in the line up, promise! (So behind, too much real life getting in the way, haha)
|It's always a blessing to make a new friend, especially when it's a fellow mum who inspires you in her parenting ways!|
I recently met Kate of An Everyday Story (seriously, click and be amazed!), a homeschooling, creative and super lovely
lady with two gorgeous kiddos. We went over for a playdate and
|The sights and sounds of rolling marbles was so pretty. Miles was determined to get|
as many in his mouth as possible - eek!
|Just a little chilled out play under the shady trees on a summers day. Little Sarah and Jack generously share and show their creative explorations. I am seriously wanting to ask Kate if I can send my kids to her place to be homeschooled ;)|
|The amazing magnetic tiles. (And he not helping, he destroying!)|
|Little hands working together....|
|Spaghetti dinners are a 'whole body' experience ;)|
|The new 'tongue out' funny face.|
|An 'ooh' to the left...|
|Blue Steel got nothin' on these piercing eyes.|
|... and this is the look I get when he realises I am there. 'Mum, you're really cramping my style here, ok?' Sorry, son!! ;)|
|Trashing the joint. Picks out toys one by one and tosses them. So cheeky!!|
|His face. I just love it.|
|If you are looking for a super healthy and SUPER delicious nut-free muesli bar for the kids' school lunches, try this one from Well Nourished. It's Bake Free too, crazy fast and easy and SO YUM I wanted to eat the whole tray and the kids|
were begging me for more. Freezes great too. And did I mention yum? And healthy? MAKE IT! Oh, if you do, my tips to make it even easier - toast the seeds in a frypan then just throw the butter/honey in there to all melt together and done! I also used some puffed rice and chia seeds. Gluten free etc too!
|A little pile of uniforms, name labels freshly ironed on! (Not the actual uniforms ironed, I'm not crazy!!)|
