I’m a mum to three boys. My eldest is 5 and my youngest are twins and they have just turned 2 years old. I’m only beginning to understand what having a busy life means. August was a juggle between caring for my family and running my lifestyle photography business. Someone once said to me that life isn’t either/or anymore, it’s as well. So we fit more and more into what feel like shorter and shorter days. Time doesn’t slow down for us. I reflected on what was important for me and realised that there is a limit to how much I can do if I want to be present for my family and the best me I can possibly be, doing the things that I love to do. Life really is too short, but being too busy to enjoy it isn’t the answer, for me anyway. My passions in life are my family and my photography business. They force me to look for happiness and joy in little things. The gestures and moments that could otherwise go un-noticed, missed in the blink of an eye. Everyday happenings barely long enough to become a memory and so quickly forgotten. I won’t photograph all of them but these little pieces make up our life and we won’t remember a lot of them, but we will at least have something with these pictures to take us back to them.
Thanks for stopping by!
