I've been talking to friends recently about going clothes shopping... for me - not the kids! Its been a while and I have a few things on my list. But the realisation dawned on me yesterday that despite having a wardrobe full of clothes, I consistently wear the same things, week after week! And the things on my list to buy, are simply newer versions of things I already own!
I pretty much have my own "mum-uniform" - jeans, long sleeve t-shirt, and the same jacket each and every day. I must have about a dozen pair of jeans, sometimes I might change it up by wearing a different kind of top, but essentially its the SAME...OLD...THING.
Do you do this too?
So this morning I challenged myself to come up with an outfit that was different to my standard mum-uniform. I had thought of wearing a summer dress with tights, but my eye was drawn to a long skirt which I've rarely ever worn - so I thought "Stuff it!" and put it on. Added some ankle boots, a denim jacket (also rarely worn) and the outfit was done. I must say, I feel quite self-conscious, but in a good way! I'm going to keep challenging myself to stay away from jeans this week, and see what else I can come up with!
Alexis, Jayk & Kaia came for their maternity/family session at Tamborine earlier this year - we were blessed with beautiful, stunning afternoon light for this gorgeous family as they eagerly awaited the arrival of their little man!
Here are a few of our favourites from this session:
Soon after, their sweet little man Luca arrived! Our session in the studio was just perfect - big sister Kaia was amazing and so photogenic - just look at those eyes!
Luca, just 9 days old on the day of his session, was a newborn superstar and did everything I asked of him, and more! From that button nose to those cute little toes... he was a joy to photograph!
"Hilary did such an amazing job capturing our family in both a maternity and newborn photo shoot. She was so patient and kind with both kids and really took her time to get the perfect shots! Every single photo was beautiful, we can’t recommend her enough"
Thank you Plotkin family for allowing me to capture these precious memories for you!
