Old movies... plus Tamborine Maternity session and Gleneagle Newborn Session (+ behind the scenes photos)
At the moment, we're having a relatively low-key school holidays, and I'm totally fine with that. Last weekend we went away for the night with friends, so this week I just wanted to have a few "home days" to get some things accomplished.
The kids aren't totally thrilled with home days though, so I tempted them with a couple of old movies that they've wanted to watch for ages... the dreaded MUSICAL!
Hubby hates musicals so he just rolled his eyes when I mentioned them. In fact, he walked in while one of them was playing, and promptly turned around and walked back out again!
So this week I've treated the kids to three all-time classics:
The Sound of Music
I have not watched Annie since I was about 10, so that was a bit of a trip down memory lane!! I love Mary Poppins too, but I was curious to see how they would cope with The Sound of Music... given how long it is and how a lot of the plot points would go over their heads... well they loved it! Master 6 was quite fidgety towards the end (but it IS a pretty long movie) and Miss 8 cringes whenever there is a kissing scene, but overall it was a great success!
And much to hubby's disgust, we've all been walking around the house singing musical songs all week :)
I loved hanging out with Shayne, Nick and Alyssia for their maternity/family session with Shayne's gorgeous bump! Miss Alyssia is the sweetest little thing and those shy smiles were just so priceless. We were treated to some stunning afternoon light too - check out these favourites!
And then beautiful newborn Amelia arrived and it was time for her newborn session! We held this session in the comfort of their own home, which meant Alyssia could play with her toys and do her own thing when she wasn't needed. Newborn Amelia was quite alert and wasn't keen on sleeping unless she was very firmly wrapped, but we were still able to get plenty of variety in her session and lots of family combinations too!
Shayne's kind words:
"Hilary done our maternity and newborn photos. The photos were just amazing!
She was very patient and made us feel very comfortable. My husband liked the fact Hilary was quick with the photos. I could not recommend Hilary enough for any photos that your wanting done."
Thanks so much to Shayne for capturing these "behind the scenes" photos of me at work with little Amelia!
