I'm following two lists - one with my Clickin Moms group and the other with our own private group on Facebook. Some weeks I've had two photos, others I have just chosen one week to roll with - so enjoy :)
Week 12 - Autumn
I can honestly say Autumn is my favourite time of year. I love the leaves turning red, I love the cooler mornings but generally nicer days, plus its the time hubby and I got married and had Ash so to me its just an awesome time of year. After a long hot summer Autumn came late this year, and with this theme falling as early as it did I didn't think I could actually fulfill the request. However, one afternoon driving along Waikoukou Valley Road I came across some lovely trees opposite Matua Vineyard, which surprisingly had the familiar red leaves to show the time of year. I was stoked to be able to capture them!
Week 13 - Blue
This weeks theme was hard for me as I was short on time and luckily my mother in law came to rescue. Snoopy our now nine year old cat has always acted like a kitten when it comes to wool so what better but to give him some blue wool to play with?
Week 14: Golden Hour
I LOVE shooting at golden hour. Light at this time is just amazing, and one of my biggest struggles as a mum of two is actually taking advantage of this time. Unfortunately mornings are usually spent cuddling in bed, and afternoons is mayhem between dinner, grizzling, feeding and staying under control. This Sunday afternoon however was quite calm in our household, and Ash and Harry had a little play in the sandpit before dinner. I love this photo as my two boys are starting to really interact and build a little friendship. Its wonderful to watch it!
Week 15: Reflection
This week hubby and I attended a wedding in Melbourne - childless! We have never left the boys for a long time before so it was a little daunting for us but enjoyable. We decided seeing we could never do it while the kids are young to take a tour bus up Great Ocean Road and visited the 12 Apostles. This coastline is awesome (although never as beautiful as NZ) so it was worth the investment.
(Please note hubby is wearing my sunglasses - he's not into diamantes...)
Week 16: Animals
Our furry friend Benson has been with us for nearly nine years and often the subject of my photos. He seemed the perfect fit for this weeks theme (although is in a desperate need of a haircut!)
Week 17 - From a High Angle
This weeks theme was easy for me - I love capturing the kids from different angles. This shot of Harry I adore - he has had Hand Foot and Mouth and been generally miserable with high temperatures. In this particular shot he was super grumpy, and just couldn't understand why I was standing above him to get the shot. I love the expression on his face - one of annoyance but still intrigued - this little guy just absorbs so much, its so nice to watch him learning about the world.
