It’s the summer holidays here in Edinburgh and I think the weather is drunk. Some days we have extreme heat, it’s too hot to venture outside, with 3 under 2 and a stroppy 5 year old. Then other days the wind and thunder storms are so fierce I dare step foot over the doorway for fear that one of my kids will blow away, so we snuggle up on the sofa and pop on disney movies. Before you know it, it’s 10pm, everyones in bed, the house is back to a normal standard of organization and I am exhausted even just thinking about the chaos thats coming the next day.
Inbetween the monotony of motherhood you find little moments of special. Those rare little gems that remind you of what it was like when you were little. How magical the world is and wish the world would just pause for a moment so you could soak it all up.
‘This is what I like about photographs. They’re proof that once, even if just for a heartbeat, everything was perfect.’
