Last week Sir commented on my plans, telling me to have a relaxing time with my children. I nearly fell off of my seat! I adore my children, and have missed them while they were away with their dad, but they are far from calming small people. “High energy” is the term I would use- magically wonderful but constantly “on”- I’m not sure where they get that from?! And then there is the small matter of me being rubbish at taking the down time I need. Still, I appreciated his optimism and was incredibly surprised when the unexpected happened…
I took them camping, a field on a farm found through a new (to me) site called pitch up. On the first night, with them tucked up in their sleeping bags, I had only the campfire, stars and a solitary owl for company. Damping down the fire and crawling into my cosy cocoon, I marvelled that I was indeed unwinding. As the days unfolded I achieved what I had previously thought of as impossible.
Tomorrow I’m off again, this time with them and my mum. I wonder if I will have a relaxing time with her being there too? Well, Sir has faith so I should too!
I’m so lucky to work with some great photographers. A relaxing time for sir image is one of many wonderful from a pre-summer shoot. If you are interested in working with me please do get in touch.
