The girls had their last lesson of the year yesterday ahead of their ballet school's performance of Don Quixote in a fortnight. They had 'open doors' too so we got to see them in action. I love how much joy is on Rosie's face whatever she's doing and how focused Evie is.

I love Halloween! I might be one of my favourite holidays.As a family we have a few little traditions we always do at this time of year and one of the most fun has to be our annual pumpkin carving!
I was shopping for birthday presents for my husband last week and while waiting in the queue I spotted two t-shirts in the sale that were just meant for a photoshoot!
Seeing as we were heading into the 'wild' for the weekend it seemed appropriate to take along their fairy dresses and see if we couldn't manage a mini fairy photoshoot over the course of our trip.Luckily for us the sun was shining, the girls weren't too blueberry stained and there were plenty of pretty places for… Continue reading Forest fairies ~ Children’s photography, Finland and Yorkshire
