Only eight weeks left to go until we wrap up 2013, and I’m so happy that I’ve been able to document another year’s worth of memories for our family. I had a couple of ‘blah’ weeks in October, when I simply didn’t feel inspired to take any photos but I pushed on nonetheless and I’m happy to say that I have at least 80% of my mojo back. Honestly, I’m incredibly thankful that doing Project Life ‘forces’ me to take photos of our everyday – I think back to our years together before having children and I truly would love to have some visual record of the everyday during that time. Obviously, I’m not going to dwell on this but I guess it’s just extra motivation for me to persevere with my photography even when I feel lazy about it.

What happened in Week 44?
Time at home with the boys. Lots of watching Bear roll around on the floor – his main method of getting about these days. Rick picked and arranged a beautiful floral arrangement using kangaroo paw from our front garden. (Crazy, right? Talk about unexpected talents!) We discovered a new cafe and had fun taking photos inside the retro cinema next door. I developed an obsession for photographing wild greenery. We all went along to a first birthday party. And I finished writing my letter to Angus for his fifth birthday. Good times all round.
How were the photos taken and processed?
All photos were taken on my iPhone 4S and processed with the VSCO Cam app.
Favourite photo(s) from Week 44?
That bottom photo of Bear on the first page, with his big brown eyes staring up at me as I held him during bedtime. Such a perfect capture of an daily ritual that makes me smile and ache all at once. And that photo of Jamie on the second page, sitting on the red cinema seats all by himself. You probably can’t see the detail, but he has the sweetest smile on his face. I adore it, even if it was the result of his attempt to charm the two old ladies across the room from us.
Number of pages and inserts?
Just the usual two page layout – no inserts!
I really love all the beautiful grey light contrasting with the yellows, greens and reds. I also love how the pops of colour are all similarly bright and rich in their tone.
