TOI: just being cute next to a bowl of oranges one summer afternoon

AOI: after a picnic in the garden her giggles echoed in the air as she run onto her swing on her belly. 

AOI and TOI: sleeping and staged by mummy. I love to capture the cuteness of my sleeping children.

Our Everyday Life: Positively Busy

Week 37 was super busy. Not wasting time busy but making lot with our time busy. AMI was busy busy preparing lessons and being exams supervisor. This busyness meant that I had to take care of the house chores all by myself. But over the weekend I was able to take some precious hours for myself. I went to the first workshop of the writing season. It was hosted by my writers’ group. I believe Bicycle Race by Queen

Also I can't believe week 37 started freezing cold. We had to harvest our veggies before the frost killed them. On Monday AOI didn’t nap, she went to preschool, three times during the week and the teacher told me that AOI told she was tired. Once back home after a while she told me that a boy in her class pushed her because he didn't want her to stand up. I told her that if that happens again, she should tell the boy to use his words instead of pushing her. And then she should tell her teacher if anyone does something to her she doesn't like.

I pray hard nobody bullies her.

One evening during this week, I believe on Tuesday, I did the bedtime routine and my heart jumped a little when I lifted daughter to find out that she was getting all grown up, too fast, too fast. I was a little sad because I worried that too soon I'll be too feeble to lift her in my arms to rock her. This knowledge tears me apart. But on the other hand I love to see her grown into this clever and beautiful little human being.

I like to see my toddler pretend being a baby. Deep inside I’m happy she wants to keep her baby side alive but, as fun as it's to see her on the floor with her brother, I don't like the dirt she picks up.

WEEKEND
Friday evening one of my artist friends asked me if I could take some pictures for her during her first art exhibition. To kick off the art/writing season my writers’ group fourth workshop tutored by a world YA bestselling author took place in our city on Saturday. It was a SOLD OUT event with ten people on the waiting list. The workshop fuelled all of the participates. Since then I’m making writing SOLID in my life.

Sunday I was the ‘official’ photographer for the Sunday School scavenger hunt. Toddler had a two hours nap and in the afternoon daddy took her to a sport shop to buy her a soccer ball.

So we all went into the park to try the new football.

So, this is a little something I’ve been doing since last August – not the belly – photography business. A very small business at that. I’m still testing the waters to see what comes out of this passion.

Photography and I go a long way back but I never really considered using my passion. Just towards the end of last year I began to look at it differently and as soon as I bought my Canon 6D I offered to shoot some portraits for my friends. Still I wasn’t confident enough to take a bigger step. But last month, I sent out emails to friends offering my photography service, for FREE for a couple of months. They came in many, to my surprise and honour, I’m so happy to have such wonderful people who are willing to spare some time for me to practice.

I’ve been shooting about two portraits a week – which is very good for a beginner. I can shoot and edit with turn around of two weeks and nearly three, I’m figuring out how I could do this professionally.

back to school 3

I’ve created a Facebook page to start organising my portfolio. It would be so nice if you can stop by to like it. It’s still a work in progress.

Thank you for following along
