Friday Night Lights {Documentary Style Family Photography} | Life

Every once in a while, about every 5-6 weeks, we get a real Friday night. What do I mean by a real Friday night? It's a Friday night where Dave has actually finished work that morning, making the rest of Friday his Friday night. Because of his rotating shift work his Friday night doesn't always fall on an actual Friday,

Seven {2016 52 week project} | Photography

{Sisters} I was really sick last week. Like, really sick. Shocking head cold. I spent most of the days lying on the lounge with one or the other girls lying on top of me.

So it was with great joy that Dave tamed the backyard jungle meaning these kids could get outside to play again! There were smiles all round, especially when Daddy cleaned off and set up their awesome play equipment we got from the lovely Denyse a while ago.

The days are long, but the years are short.

{Sisters}  Being in the garden, especially at their Grandma or Nana's house is hands down one of their favourite things.
