A baby in the womb is in its purest form. Nothing from the outside has influenced it yet. It’s so amazing to think about. A new little life, a clean slate to write a new story. I am so excited to take part in documenting this amazing little life’s story. His big sister, Isla has been waiting for her “Hunny-Boo” for so long and now he is finally here.
I am photographing this beautiful little family tomorrow, and before I do, I just needed to blog the photos of them awaiting his arrival.
I have met so many people in my life. Some of them were good friends. Friends that share an interest, and maybe someone who can have a good conversation or is fun to hang out with. While we were together it was great. Then there are those friends that stays with you and that you always think of you when you are not around anymore. They are heart friends. Friends that move into you heart and even if you do not see each other for more than a couple of times a year, they are still in your heart. This Forkert family is that to me. I’ve met them six and a half years ago when we had our babies together and we have been friends through thick and thin. She was my training buddy and my mummy buddy and my crafty buddy, but most of all, she is my soul buddy. The nights we chatted on the beach through wind and rain, the advice she gives me about being a good mum, and the way she remembers my family on important dates. She is one in a million and I am so lucky to be the one who capture the special bond that she has with her kids and husband.
We are back in the swimming pool. The two kids took off from where they left off last summer and they enjoyed doing all their tricks. A few new rules apply this year, which include, not diving sideways through the pool. They are so much taller this year and they may actually jump over the pool 😳 it is a lap pool so it is quite skinny. Hailey, our baby leans over the side off the pool splashing the water but in with her dad, she did not took her eyes off me. The two of us is joined to the him. Never separated. She sleeps on my face and she hangs on my leg while I do my kick fit 🥊 boxing. She calms me, and she melts my heart. Especially when she reach out for me when the distance gets too far.
Since Hailey was born, and she started school, time for just me and Hannah is hard to find. Afternoons are full of tired siblings, cooking dinner, bath time, stories and homework. Bradley has put himself to bed at 4:30 pm on Sunday evening after a full weekend, and Hannah and I took the opportunity to go and walk the little track around the light house that she’s been asking to go on, every time we drive past. There are steep cliff edges involved so I did not want to take her while I have two other kids too. She ran part, carefully slide down on her bottom in other parts and climbed rocks until we finally played in the sand until it was almost dark. It was the perfect afternoon. She has told me so many things. She showed me meditation. She told me secrets and creative inspirations. She took some photos of me and I took some photos of her. Here she is. My rainbow child. My hippie child. My free spirit and wild heart. I hope you enjoy our afternoon results.
