– September 09 – thank you so much!

A while back I attempted a high key photoshoot with Mila (2) and uploaded a colour version. (Delight) I’m not sure about this black and white version, would love to hear some opinions. ( :

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
