Yesterday was my daughters first day at school.  She looked adorable and I took pictures of her getting dressed and ready.

She started off not so thrilled, but at the end of the day I got this one!  I think she enjoyed it!  Horray!


Love you, baby!

So, after lots of planning, we finally came to organise two days where everyone could make a session. Then it was a matter of having the right weather. Basel didn’t dissapoint us. The scenery was perfect for our winter shoots last Sunday and it looks like it has stuck around enough that this Sunday will also work out well too. Here are a couple of my little one – I’ve decided to give her a session too, in the hope that I might take a few more pictures of her this year!

Pretty in pink:

Here is a pretty montage of images from the other sessions from that weekend! It was such fun playing with you all in the snow. More to come from the next session!

I’m ashamed to say that I don’t take enough pictures of my own little one. It’s partly that when I see her, it’s when I am not working and I just want to spend as much quality time with her as I can. It’s also partly down to her not really liking me taking photos (clearly not my biggest fan – I hope she appreciates it more when she is older). Either that, or she decides she wants to take the photos and I’m not really keen to put 5,000CHF worth of equipment in her hands just yet!

It was her birthday this last weekend and we did make a weekend of it. Grandparents flew over, we had a party (which I didn’t take photos at) and then on her actual birthday we went pony riding with her two best friends – more on that in another post. I love it when all the poppies come out. In fact, one of the last shoots I had with my little one was last year when the poppies were out. There are pics on my facebook fan page. Before the rain ruined them or they all got cut down we headed up to the fields for a few shots. It wasn’t until we were nearly finished did I realise that the field also had beans in – good job the farmer didn’t see us. At that point we heading quite quickly back home. I only wish looking at these pics, that I had brought a hair brush with me.

My amazing four year old:

And the giggles, I love how her whole being lights up when she is happy:

For all of those wondering, this dress is from the Bellefiore shop, by Albetta:

And just as quickly back to contemplative:

I love you baby xxx
