This morning, Brian and I were desperately trying to get the kiddies to have a nap before Brian had to leave for his boys weekend away (some people have all the luck!) and as you may have probably guessed, they weren’t playing along. We have a rule when it comes to sleep time that if they don’t fall asleep within 20 minutes then they probably aren’t going to so just get them up and try again later. We opened the shutters, I grabbed my camera and we waited to see what would happen.

We are staying in the granny-flat that my parents have and my 15 year old sister has made it into a teenage-retreat so a lot of her stuff is in the room. HannahΒ began opening drawers and soon found something interesting for her and BlakeΒ to play with…

  1. Now that’s the way – when they refuse to sleep just do a gorgeous photoshoot like this one! πŸ˜›
    Love all the images. How can you go wrong with two cute kids, a piggy bank and a massive collection of coins!

  2. Oh, both of your children are like dolls, they are just so perfectly edible in their beauty. Having said that, my very favourite shot is the high 5 πŸ™‚ What a cool moment beautifully captured. x

  3. Andrea, these photos are amazing!
    Your children look so content playing together. I love it. Also, how well does that green wall make them pop out. Gorgeous!
    I especially loved the coins between the toes shot. Little ones are so very inventive, it’s brilliant!

  4. gorgeous, impossible to choose just one, i agree!!! love the hi-5 and the toe coins too! and the shot when they are both so seriously putting the money in. such cuties!

  5. Wow these are gorgeous photos and I love the colours. Your perspective and different angles are just amazing. Such a wonderful collection.

  6. Those green walls and red sheets make for a great background. Great shots as usual. Glad to hear you’re feeling better too. Drink some cranberry juice πŸ™‚ xxx

    • Oh Nicole, what a wonderful comment, thank you so much! I am actually not very happy that I didn’t nail the focus in a few of the shots but I guess when you’re photographing kids the same moment doesn’t happen twice!

I love to hear your thoughts, feel free to leave a comment :)
