I’m afraid you’ll have to forgive my very self-indulgent post today as I simply had to share some of these gorgeous photos of Caterpillar with you.
My experience of motherhood so far has mostly been about transitions and stages – it seems the moment you get used to things being a certain way in your family everything changes; a new routine comes in and you’re back on unsteady feet. I spent a long time trying to control that pattern but in recent years have found a lot of happiness in learning to let go and embrace change (more on that next week).
Anyway, the big change we’ve faced this month is Caterpillar starting full-time school and I figured there was no better way to mark that milestone than with some beautiful photographs. So when my friend and incredibly gifted photographer – Michelle Snaith of Willow & Rose – offered to capture Caterpillar’s starting school moment I gave a very easy yes.
Local to Leigh-on-Sea, Willow & Rose offer natural and contemporary photography, specialising in newborn, toddler and family shoots. I hadn’t heard of a “back to school” photo shoot before but I absolutely love the idea. Your child beginning school is a huge step in their lives, and yours as parents too, so why not try to capture that moment.
These are just a few of the incredible shots Michelle produced of my four year old, despite him not always being a particularly cooperative model!
