Elma Family Kitty Photography Pip The 52 Project

6/52 {The 52 Project}


A portrait of each of my children once every week for 2015.

Space for the Butterflies - an eclectic handmade family life

Kitty: Chief Adventurer. So delighted to be beside the sea once more, even if she wasn’t at all keen about getting her beloved wellies dipped in the sea.  But she was warm and snug with roses in her cheeks and the taste of salt on her tongue.  Only the promise of fish and chips for lunch could persuade her to leave the beach.

Elma: Enthusiastic wearer of food. There’s nothing that she eats that does not end up smeared across cheeks, dropped on the floor or swirled into pretty patterns on the tablecloth.  And it’s when properly sticky that she comes running over for the biggest cuddles.  In looks she becomes more and more like Kitty every day, especially with her hair tied back, but she’s very much her own little independent self. That’s what happens when you have two parents with a fairly strong stubborn streak.

Space for the Butterflies - an eclectic handmade family life

Pip: We’re so often told how tall he is, how very big for only five months old, and it’s true, but it belies the fact that in the grand scale of things he is really so very very little; my happy smiling little boy.  This week he’s not wanted to be apart from me, any kind of putting down has been met with rampant displeasure so he’s been spending a lot of time in the sling.  And though sometimes it feels like I’ll never get anything done ever again I love the feel of him snuggled in and being able to drop kisses on a sleeping head.  The washing up will wait.

      It’s a pair of pyjamas from Little Bird at Mothercare – I may or may not have got all three a matching set!!

      Her yellow coat has definitely turned out to be a good buy in terms of getting gorgeous pictures it’s true!! And thank you, I love it too 🙂

    By the look of Pip’s feet he’s going to be a giant! But yes, he’s just a tiny bub for now x

  • jandi 08/02/2015 at 11:21 am

    just lovely- especially the one of your Kitty! x

  • Brandi 08/02/2015 at 1:37 pm

    Oh my goodness, I can’t believe how big he is getting! He does look so long–and lean! I’ve just noticed with my own how much more sturdy he feels…a bit sad that it is all going so quickly!

  • Claudia 08/02/2015 at 8:06 pm

    cuties! love that first shot

  • Donna 08/02/2015 at 10:22 pm

    How big has Pip got?!?! He is looking so much bigger now! Gorgeous photos this week x

    • Carie 12/02/2015 at 11:03 pm

      I know – he’s so tall!

  • Bex @ The Mummy Adventure 08/02/2015 at 10:45 pm

    Elma looks so grown up and I see Archie in her – maybe it is a middle child thing. Pip is looking big but you are right, even a big 5 month old is a little baby

    • Carie 12/02/2015 at 11:02 pm

      I think there’s definitely a middle child mischief!

  • erica @ that wild road 10/02/2015 at 6:04 am

    lovely portraits! i love the rosy cheeked beachy one.

    • Carie 12/02/2015 at 10:52 pm

      thank you 🙂

    I love the beach photo, it captured the atmosphere perfectly. Popping over from practicing simplicity

    • Carie 12/02/2015 at 10:52 pm

      thank you – I think it’s one of my favourite pictures of her yet!

    I was a bit worried when I saw that first, gorgeous picture that you’d been up in my neck of the woods without me even realising it, but I think from the little snippets on my feed thingy that it was South Devon hopefully! Elma looks very grown up, maybe the hair? And Pip so happy as always.

    • Carie 23/02/2015 at 10:01 pm

      It was South Devon – the north is only for holidays 🙂
