I couldn’t start this blog off without sharing some of my favourite images taken recently by our friend Robyn Rose. Bobs has been photographing our family since the kids were tiny, and we even had a maternity shoot when Ben was still in my tummy. She just gets us, and I couldn’t be more in love with these latest pics.
It’s so funny though, how self critical we can be, and how we tend to scan each image for every wrinkle or double chin. We think everyone else looks wonderful, but we hone in on our own imperfections, instead of focusing on how happy we look in an image, or how loved. So I had to talk myself out of this mindset. After all, it’s a privilege denied to many, the gift of ageing. So I’m trying to see each smile line as proof that I have lived, and loved, and laughed.
