Living Arrows 34/52

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran.

Every Monday for the rest of this year I will share with you two photo’s of my children that celebrate their childhood.


I’m so happy that I finally have a photo of Jake not only sitting still but smiling too. Usually when I ask him to pose or smile for a photo he screws his face up and closes his eyes making it almost impossible to get a portrait shot. I find myself running around after him trying to get a good shot.

One of the things I love most about blogging and taking part in a link like this is that it encourages me to take lots of photo’s. I’m so glad I get to capture all these childhood moments.


Do you ever look at your children and wish you could see the world through their eyes ? Imagine seeing the wonders of the world for the first time through fresh eyes. Daisy always wants to know what certain flowers, plants and trees are called when we are out and about. Her curiosity knows no bounds and her imagination is wild and wonderful.

By the end of this year she will be six and as much as she’s excited to be a bigger girl I do wish time would slow a little.

    I often wish I could see the wonders for the first time too. Must be amazing! Also, Jake has the most lovely eyes! #LivingArrows

    Oh that’s a lovely photo of Jake! And I love being out and about with my children, and seeing how excited they are about things that are pretty mundane when you’re a grown up, it makes things like bus rides into town much more fun! x #LivingArrows

    Jake sounds very much like my son. I have very few posed pictures of him as he will always screw up his face or look off to the side. It’s a rare treat to get a still portrait. You’ve captured a lovely one! I also know what you mean about wanting things to slow down. I have a nearly six year old too!

    Your photos are so happy and serene this week. And high fives for getting such a happy, smiley picture of J! x
