Lately I’ve been enjoying a new hobby – photography. I love exploring how different techniques can bring a still to life. I’ve been experimenting with light, texture, angles and filters. And I’ve been obeying the most important rule in photography – get close, and then get closer! My girls are willing subjects for me and so I share with you some moments of time I have captured behind the lens. The challenge for me is taking a great photo without identifying my girls. I assure you I can frame a shot but for the purpose of my blog I crop their faces out! Here area a few of my favourite things:
The beautiful Miss A enjoying the last rays of the afternoon autumn sun. I love how her dress sparkles in these shots – the light was just perfect at the time.
These next few shots were captured in the same natural light but I altered them afterwards with a vintage filter. The dress then becomes a soft dusty pink and I love the reflection of the beads on her arms, with shards of sunlight behind her.
Miss J and Miss H enjoying the beautiful warm weather we’ve had this week.
I just happen to have a very talented mother-in-law and this is stunning quilt she made for Miss A. As you can imagine, this is every little girl’s dream – a Babushka Doll quilt, hand-made by her nanna. A lovely keepsake and something I could NEVER create.
And just to really show off my MIL’s talent, here’s a bunting she also made for Miss A’s room. Lucky girl!
