Living Arrows

I am taking part in Donna from What the Redhead Said‘s Living Arrows – which is a celebration of childhood!

We could all do with a little more celebration in our lives!

To quote Donna, “The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and every Monday we share a moment from our week and invite others to do the same as part of this linky.”





Week 22/52 Living Arrows

Photo Shoot

In the run-up to RLT’s first birthday, I decided to book him in for a photoshoot to photo document exactly how he was at that time so I would always have lovely photos to remember him at one.

Luckily the amazing children’s photographer Amy Thor lives locally, so I was able to get some amazing shots. It is his Grandma’s birthday soon, too so I could justify the cost that way also!

In 25 minutes Amy had 330 photographs of RLT. She had such a good rapport with him; it was all very natural. I got contact sheets of around 90 images and selected 10 to keep. We were so happy with the final outcomes!
