Welcome to Spring all you yummy mummies!
My first real photoshoot! Not the selfie-and-instagram-filter type, but one with a real photographer, beautiful location and poses that would make any supermodel die with envy.
That was me last Sunday. Although it didn’t start out so well. The thought of leaving the house at eight on a Sunday morning, with all three our kids in tow while also running around in heels, filled me with dread the moment Lesley and I came up with the crazy idea. But it was high time for a few quality snaps to finally put a face to my brand. More importantly, I knew you, my readers, needed to know who it is you are connecting with, and that was enough motivation for me to go through with it all.
Surprisingly the kids were very helpful throughout, and enjoyed helping both model (Mom) and photographer (dad) get the job done. I have learned in my more than six years as a mother that the secret to avoid fussy kids while out and about, is to keep any activity short and sweet, so that’s exactly what we did – we got a few shots we were happy with, quickly wrapped it up and then spent the rest of the morning relaxing at one of our favourite restaurants (review to follow), which happens to also have a kids play park. All this in under three hours. It’s safe to say we make a really mean team, in more ways than one 🙂
Take a look!
