December 2017 – Home Life Project

I did it, I finally managed to capture my Home Life Project photos on the actual day I planned to. I was desperate to capture the memories of putting our Christmas decorations up for the 2nd Christmas at our home. We decided to build up our Christmas decoration collection over the years and have managed to add some really lovely items to our home this year. One of  my most favourite things we have added this year are outdoor lights. We have never owned outdoor Christmas lights, so it was quite a special…continue reading →

November 2017 – Home Life Project

At the start of the year I promised myself I would try hard to join in with Clare's Home Life Project every month. Life has been busy this year and both C and I have had various things take up our time. I became a Beaver leader in April which takes up quite a bit of time and is something I love and Clara has been poorly with various bugs and infections for the last few months. All this meant we very rarely had much time in the home to capture our day…continue reading →

June 2017 – Home Life Project

This month's Home Life Project photos were taken in between moments of downtime for our little man. We've had several bugs pass though the household the last few weeks and this weekend M managed to catch one. I really can't believe we are in June already and am actually writing this whilst over a week in June has passed. We had a really busy May, with June and July looking even busier. Our weekend didn't plan on being busy, so I knew I'd be able to snap some photos at home, hoping I'd…continue reading →

May 2017 – Home Life Project

This month our home life has had a big change and I love that it coincided with the weekend I take our Home Life Project photos. I cheated a little this weekend as I have captured images on both days as I wanted the memories of our first two days with our new puppy Beau to be captured in full. On the Saturday we decided to go see a puppy locally that was looking for a new home. We had no idea that 30 minutes after meeting we would be heading home with…continue reading →

April 2017 – Home Life Project

Another month is over which means this weekend was in our calendars to document for our Home Life Project. Last year our Home Life Project got cut short at the end of Feb, so I have no comparison for what we were up to at home last year. But I know it was full of boxes and packing as we prepared to move out of our house and back in with family. This year it couldn't have been more different. I chose to document Sunday as I knew it would be more relaxed…continue reading →

March 2017 – Home Life Project

This month I was worried about missing the weekend for capturing our monthly Home Life Project moments. We were away in someone else's home in Arrecife, where I considered snapping my shots, but decided I wanted a full year of our home. I knew we had quite a laid back weekend planned and knew Saturday was out of the question as Clara was taking M out all day to buy my birthday presents, so Sunday it was. Sunday started  out very relaxed with M joining us in bed to watch his iPad to…continue reading →

February 2017 – Home Life Project

It's crazy to be writing up our second Home Life Project of the year already! That means we've been in our new home for over 2 months now and to be honest it still hasn't sunk in that we are homeowners. We've settled into our weekday routines very well, but still struggle just relaxing at home on the weekends as we are so used to filling them out activities outside the house. This weekend our plans were to be in the house as much as possible with a couple of fun things scattered…continue reading →

January 2017 – Home Life Project

Last year the very lovely Clare from Maybush Studio created the Home Life Project. It was a project I was keen to join in with and was looking forward to documenting a year in our house. But unfortunately I only posted 3 months worth of Home Life Project posts (Jan, Feb, December) due to us having to leave our rented accommodation as the homeowner decided to sell the house. December's post saw us settling into our new home, which meant I was really pleased when Clare said she was continuing the project this…continue reading →

December 2016 – Home Life Project

At the start of the year a fab lady we know created Home Life Project. A lovely photography project designed to get you to capture life in your home for one specific day in the month.  I loved the idea and joined in in January and February, before we were suddenly told we wouldn't have a house at the end of April. For those months I was quite sad about capturing somewhere that wasn't really our home to capture, so I put the project to one side. But all that changed at the…continue reading →

February 2016 – Home Life Project

This weekend I was all ready to join in with Clare from Maybush Studio's Home Life Project again, to the point where I made sure my camera battery was charged and my memory card was clear. I was a little late on my post last month, so I wanted to make sure I got my post live on time. Having these photos to look back on at the end of the year is great. So many of our weekends end up being captured at the beach or the woods, so it's nice to…continue reading →
