My Hooligans Captured Perfectly...

Warning: This post has photo overload & is more intended for my mother & others who love seeing pics of Noal & Pip...


Y'all can tell I'm obsessed with photos, or more so, taking photos of my little hooligans...Craig jokes that they are the "most documented children ever" & thinks I have a serious problem...Maybe I do, Maybe I don't- But in the end it brings me joy trying to capture the joy they bring me...So be it...


If I'm honest, I've always been quite jealous of photographers...I wish I had even half the gift they do- the creative insight, the technique, the passion & most of all the raw talent to see something & beautifully capture it...


That all being said when Amy Lenhart Photography offered to snap some shots of my hooligans & I of course, jumped on it...


Once again what I imagined in my head was nothing like what actually happened...I pictured something like you see of a family off Pinterest- Lovely outfits, mum looking perfectly made-up, kids behaved, smiling at the camera- Everyone seemingly wanting to be doing that exact thing...


In reality our experience couldn't have been farther from it-
But, in true photographer talent turning chaos into precious shots, is just what Amy did...


Not only did we show up late, Noal freaking out because he hated the buttons on his shirt, me rushed & putting on blush in the van - But Noal wanted to be anywhere other than sitting in one spot looking in a camera...









Amy thankfully just snapped away as I chased after him, played hide & seek, calmed down temper tantrums & swirled him away from mosquitos...Bloody hell if I would have known I'd be chasing after a run-a-way like that, I would have most definitely worn something else...




And big note to self here; since I don't normally wear earrings on a day-to-day basis, I shouldn't have been surprised that all Noal wanted to do was yank, pull & try to get at them...



At one point I was sitting on a cute little crate with Pip in my lap and Noal behind me, hoping against all odds, for a cute pic of a hug or such...Instead he pulled my hair & earring so hard I literally dropped Pip & the poor little peach flipped off my lap, bum over head onto the grass- Mum of the year over here...





So maybe my life isn't what those "perfect" families on Pinterest portray- Or maybe those families sedated their children beforehand...Either way I'm so very happy with how Amy captured my little family just as we are...






Thank you once again Amy for your kindness, talent & most of all 
patience...

  1. Lovely pictures. Kudos for the models and the photographers.

    It had been a while since I realized there's not such thing as perfect life. Life is beautiful, but nobody said it was going to be easy, simple or fair. Life is what we do with it.

    It is very hard to find something imperfect in those pictures with those awesome laughs captured there.

    Take care :)
