Introducing The Lion Guard | For the Kids

Brought to you by Nuffnang and Disney Junior The Channel

I still remember the first time I saw The Lion King. I was 12 years old and Mum took us to the cinemas to see it.  A big part of the motivation for wanting to go on a family outing with the "littlies" (my younger brother and sisters, aged 4, 5 & 7) was the fact that JTT was voicing Simba.

Three {2016 52 week project} | Photography

{Sisters} - On the weekend we did a big clean-up and started to really get the house back in to proper order after Christmas and New Years.  The girls have a really bad habit of pulling every single toy out and never putting a thing away. So now that we've started from scratch we've been making a point of drilling it in to the girls that they must pack away one thing before getting another. 

One of the advantages of having a clean and tidy play room is the fact that they can now jump off the toy chest without landing on random toys and bit of Duplo. Something that makes both girls very happy indeed!

One {2016 52 week project} | Photography

This year I've decided to take on 4 (yes FOUR!) 52 week projects. The first P52 is a photo every week of my cheeky girls together. The second and third projects will see me continue the P52 I undertook in 2015, of a photo a week of each of my girls separately. 

The fourth and final P52 is one I'll be tackling with a bunch of super talented photographers over at Clickin Moms. Every week a new theme is posted, and I'm going to use this P52 as inspiration for more creative images and getting outside of my comfort zone, which week one has certainly done!

Lagoona Matata (Hello 2016!) | Life

2016 has dawned and on the first day of the year we took advantage of the fine weather and headed to Pughs Lagoon in Richmond for some duck feeding. Now it's 5 days in to the New Year and I've been going well with my resolution to take more photos, especially in the documentary style family photography way...
