Muddy Puddles & rainbow wellies!

It’s been months and months since I picked up my camera. Winter does that too you don’t you think?  But on a family walk I decided to bring out my faithful camera and try to get some shots of how quickly Rufus has grown since the last time I photographed him. He is such a dude, and pulled lots of funny faces at me when ever I asked for a smile. So I had to be a ninja photographer and get the secret smiles of pure muddy puddle joy, that he just couldn’t hide!

Hello :) It’s been yonks!

Hello :) Sorry its been ages. I have always been rather sporadic when it comes to blogging anyway, let’s face it.

So what did I get up to in my time away?

1. I passed my driving test! Woahhhh major achievement right there!

2. I got a job!

3. I quit that job :/

4. I did our annual Autumn photos. Nothing major and posy this year, just a lovely walk in the park with my beautiful boys. And the freedom that objectivity can give you.

I hope you like them. I had rather missed my camera and it felt good to shoot again, I had been a bit rusty and frustrated last time I got her out.

Hope you’re all having a wonderful October and enjoying the changing of the seasons. Ekkkk! Christmas soon.  Actually shh, I didn’t mention that ;) xxx

We are family, I got all my sisters with me!

Yes, ahem. Introducing my fabulous sister, Genine Delahaye! This awesome little lady got her designs featured on the blog Print & Pattern, and I couldn’t be more excited, happy and proud for her. This is her vocation, she wanted to be a designer and I wanted to be a brain surgeon.  At least one of us got our dream ;)

You can keep track of her new work on Facebook or take a gander at her portfolio of work on her blog.

And yes, she kindly gave me permission to use her bear design on my blog, how lucky am I!

A special little pudding pie

Ho-ray for the sun.

A few days ago I managed to get out into the country side with my sister, and take portraits of my beautiful niece.

Today we visited my in-laws up at the farm. I took some time and went to the meadow where we got married to paint all the different types of grass. It felt good to be looking after myself. I must find time to do it again soon :)

Bluebells: Part 2

Be Careful not to squash them little bear!

Yay, I have finally finished the photos from the bluebell walk.  loved this place and keep thinking of it. I can’t wait to get back there.

I did just want to also mention, that I do worry about trampling the bluebells. We have a nature loving, sensitive little boy, but also a curious one. He wandered into them a few times at the beginning so I grabbed a couple of shots like a ninja before reminding him not to walk on them. He also picked two when I wasn’t looking. We respected our surroundings, like we always do in the countryside :)

Also, note the killer steady hand I managed to keep on the 3rd picture. That was shot at 1.8 aperture on a nifty 50mm 1.8. The field of focus was teeny.

Bluebells: Part 1

We visited some new woods today. We found a meadow of bluebells in a beautiful clearing. I have never seen such a thing, there was lot’s of wild heather as well, so I will be returning throughout the seasons to that wonderful spot :)
