#MummyShot Week #21

3 June 2017

Dear friends,

Welcome to #MummyShot Roundup, hosted by myself and the amazing MacKenzie Granville.I always seem to end up walking behind the boys playing catch up as they are running along in front of me, chatting away. A few years ago I snapped a shot of my boys walking at the beach. I loved this shot as for me it captured their relationship, hand in hand, mirrored walking steps, little man turned towards his brother... I read the phrase hand in hand together we can make it and my mummy shot was born. I've been recreating this shot even since.

Photography is about capturing souls not smiles.   Dragan Tapshanov.

Thank you very much for sharing these beautiful shots. They all gave me a real taste of summer and I adored that perfect bump shot! I couldn't resist an extra post this week too as I simply loved this amazing capture from Claire @ladybirdsadventures. It is getting more and more difficult to choose just 4 every week.

My favourite post from Mackenzie this week:

Today she caught the school bus for the first time as she's gone to a friends house to study after school. It felt strange driving out of the school gates without her. I miss her, I think it's knowing she is growing up and becoming more independent. It's of course what I want for her, growing independent and spreading her wings, but sometimes I think 'wow I have a teenage daughter!!!' And that freaks me out!!! Some days I just want my baby back. . . . #livingfearlesslyauthentic #mummyshot #littleandbrave #littlestoriesofmylife #letthembelittle #littlefierceones #mydaughterismyworld #growingup #teenagers #teenagegirl #dearphotographer #stayclassymama #coolmumclub #highlightsofhappy #myhappycapture #pointshoot #kcaols #pinklinker #perfectandproud #mumsofinstagram #cameramama #momswithcameras #littleloves #thisparentlife #littleandfierce #lifecloseup #rememberingthesedays #reflectionsfromme #mackenzieglanville #kingcharlescavalier
