There was a time when I would do photoshoots of my family twice a year at least. It seems to be getting harder to do these days as the kids grow up, even more so because I’m their mother and I get stressed dealing with their demands whilst concentrating on being the photographer at the same time.
I certainly do not feel like this when photographing other families; I feel much more calm and in control.
My husband who was sitting in the living room next door to my studio could vouch just how stressful this photoshoot had been.
We had been going for hours and by around half six in the evening, my husband got up and cooked dinner lest we starve and face an even grumpier evening.
But I am delighted at the results; it was worth the effort and the stress. I also thought it’s worth a blog too given it’s probably been two years since I’ve done a personal blog!
I had primed the girls about the shoot prior and they were bubbling with excitement when the outfits arrived. These gorgeous tutu pettiskirts, ruffle tops and matching hair accessories are from Candy Bows. They go up to size 12 for these pettiskirts. The lovely ladies at Candy Bows are offering a discount for your first online order. Just type in the code lilysawyer at checkout for 20% off your entire order and it’s free shipping for orders over £50.
The kids are growing up faster than I can take pictures of them. I will try harder especially with my boy who agreed to be my assistant and hairdryer-holder for the girls’ shoot but kept running away! He is well overdue one!
