Well, I'm clearly off to a bad start with making a better effort to keep this blog up! I could come up with plenty of excuses, but won't bore you with them. Suffice to say I've been pretty busy with photography, scrapbooking and generally being a mum to 2 small boys. And a perfect wife to my husband, obviouslly!

Things are starting to pick up a bit with the child photography. I've done a couple of newborn shoots recently and have several more babies and toddlers lined up over the next few weeks. Plenty to keep me busy, and keep Michael happy that one of these days he'll be married to a top notch photographer and can retire, ha ha! I have had my first paying customer but I'm guessing that it will be a long time before any of us can retire round here. If you know of anyone in my general vicinity with kids who would like to take part in a portfolio building offer, please direct them here. The more practice I get the better.

And on the scrapbooking front, my exciting news is that my layout is going to be on the cover of the next Scrapbook Magazine! Now I know that this is not very exciting news for the majority of people I know, but I know enough people who care to share this news! Hurray!!

I'm posting a few recent photos just in case anyone has been missing the boys! And there are a few new pics in the portfolio album if you fancy a look.

The first few of these were taken yesterday at Mountstewart. The boys and I went for a walk and a picnic snack. And I pestered the boys with my camera trying to practice!



Do you think Patrick was fed up with me taking photographs of him?


Look how cute these two are! All hot and bothered but still not able to leave each other alone!


This is a new face Conor has come up with all by himself! Don't tell me this boy isn't going to be trouble!
