Photographer’s kids are the worst at this posing gig… 🙂
Archer refused to open his eyes for the first ten minutes & Hamish just looked cranky.
Oh & Jude has just learned to kiss. It’s pretty damn CUTE!
You may recognise the lady in these images as photographer, Lisa Nolan 🙂 Lisa HATES having her photo taken perhaps even more than me. I am certain though that in 50 years from now when her beautiful daughters look through these frames they’ll be so glad she went to the “other side”. We’re often so self-critical we forget that for our children it is the memory we are capturing & not how good or bad our hair looked that day.
The weather was not ideal but we had already been delayed a number of times & the Herbert gang were happy enough to dance around in the rain. And we did see rain, as well as lots of wind, a cute puppy & some crazy kids up a tree in our brief time on Sawtell beach.
Thanks for being such good sports guys,
Emma & Joel are such beautiful parents & little Indy is desperate to follow in their footsteps. Although she is currently a little too keen to cuddle, kiss, SQUEEZE, & “help” with little sister Lola, it is lovely to see that she cares so much. Our own boys were quite indifferent about their siblings when they first arrived & were much more excited once they could do “stuff”. They are now the best of friends.
It was so nice to catch up again & talk about how everybody was adjusting to the new family dynamic now that their hearts & home had grown to fit one more.
In my opinion nobody looked tired enough for there to be a newborn in the house!! 🙂
Visiting my long time friend in Sydney is kind of like being at home with the exception that all the little people are wearing dresses & are not wrestling each other on the floor 🙂 Aleesha & I have known each other since we were toddlers & we had our children not too far apart & with similar age gaps between each. Despite the fact that her lot have a penchant for tutus & mine for Lego there is surprisingly not a great many other differences. Kids are kids, siblings are siblings. They have their own little dynamic: somebody is the leader, somebody is a bit of a perfectionist, somebody is a slob, somebody is affectionate, somebody is a tad nutty, somebody has no fear for their personal safety & somebody is generally without clothes most of the time. This is what makes shooting families, especially siblings so fun!!
My kids love to hang at the beach & to help to mow the lawn whilst Aleesha’s tribe loves their local park & Paddo shops. BUT when they are together they’re just kids being kids. Country Mice & City Mice: equally adorable & equally quirky little folk!
P.S I would be remiss if I did not mention Jazzy, the world’s most tolerant pooch.
