4 sleeps til my big boy comes home for Christmas. The countdown has been epic in this house, every day the girls asking how many sleeps left until they see their brother. Distance has been tough but it has also made our relationship stronger and I’ve had a chance to reflect. Hindsight really is a MFer. Looking back at the stuff I’ve stressed on whilst in the thick of parenting a teenager I’ve realised a few things. His teenage behavior does not determine what kind of adult he will grow in to. Shit, I was a rogue and I feel I’ve done alright. My mum would have been so bloody proud I just know it. And from our conversations over FaceTime that sometimes go for over an hour I believe he is a good kid. He has strong values and a wicked sense of humour. I’m looking forward to giving him the biggest squeeze and holding him a little too long when I see him ~ to the point where I can hear him saying ‘ok mumsy, settle down’ 🖤
This was my first downtown shoot and i absolutely fell in love!! It has such a different vibe than anything I’ve ever done. These guys were troopers. It was a windy 48 degrees but it sure didn’t slow them down.
Can I tell you something? I love indoor sessions. I love how comfortable they are. Everyone is at peace doing what they love, babies can nap when necessary, and no one has to wear shoes. This little scene is a real one: Mom told me they do this often—Dad will play guitar while she crochets and the littles are all around their feet playing and reading in this little nook. Oh how I want every family to do at least one indoor session as they raise their kiddos. These are scenes that fly away.
