Had a lovely family day out a couple of weekends ago for Mother’s Day.  We took Steve’s parents with us and with big beautiful tropical butterflies to look at, my camera had to come along for the ride as well!  My eldest son was a bit freaked out by the size of the butterflies fluttering about in the greenhouse room but my middle son actually wanted to hold one!  Luckily just before we went home one came and landed on him and he was chuffed to bits.  As well as the butterflies there is a room with some parakeets and other birds in.  Watch out in there in summer wearing sandals as there are a couple that quite fancied pecking my feet!!  Apart from that there’s a little park area for the children and a few small animals likes guinea pigs and rabbits, an owl or two, some reptiles and a couple of miniature donkeys!  Quite a quirky little place really, I enjoyed it anyway – not sure the kids want to go back any time soon – perhaps I took too many photos or something?! 😉  After a nice cuppa back at Steve’s mum & dad’s we stopped once more on the way home for a sunset photo… I was one happy and am one VERY lucky Mum 🙂

What happens when the snow doesn’t come to us – we go to the snow of course!  This is what happened last weekend when the boys woke up and saw we’d had rain and not snow over night.  They were so convinced there would be enough so we’d be able to go and play in our park the next morning, they even had the sledges out ready!  (OK this was slightly spurred on by Mum & Dad’s excitement too…)  So after much persuading from me to Steve we packed up the car and drove to where he grew up in Hindhead.  We passed a bit of snow in Goodwood on the way but nothing compared to what awaited us in Surrey.  I had forgotton how beautiful the land & trees look under a heavy layer of the white fluffy stuff.  Like a beautifully iced cake 🙂  We had such fun I wanted to share a few photos…

Every once in a while I purposefully take my lot out to do a mini shoot (usually in time for Christmas as prints make nice gifts for grandparents!) but believe me it’s never as easy as it looks with your own children.  When I’m Nicki the photographer I take charge and 9 times out of 10 children who don’t belong to me listen and giggle along with me, but when I’m MUM with my own children?  Ha ha – you have to be kidding?!  No way josé, they were having none of it.  SO… these next few snaps were the best of a really funny bunch, might show the outtakes one day!  But for now here are my utterly adorable but incredibly hard work gorgeous bunch of kids and dogs!  I’m a lucky mum 🙂

If you’d like a family shoot I promise not to get stressed and will happily try and get your little ones to smile or I’ll run around after them snapping away!  Just give me a shout on 01243 587517 or email enquiries@nfelthamphotography.co.uk

For the last 4 or 5 years (I lose count!) I have been totally blessed with having one of the best neighbours in the world.  Ever!  Sveta & I giggle so much together, we love all things Twilight (and various other vampire related programmes & films!), we diet together when Sveta hasn’t just baked an amazing cake or delicious Latvian dish for me to try (although she does NOT need to diet anyway!), we drink a lot of coffee together (that’s Sveta’s fault, I never liked it much before!) she takes my boys to the park sometimes and helps me so much with my children when I have a shoot or a meeting mid week and my other half Steve isn’t about.  Her daughter Anna keeps my boys in line from time to time too!  We have become such close friends over the years and I really don’t know what I’d do without her 🙂  I’m always thinking I don’t do enough for my friends for all the help they give me so when Sveta’s Mum & brother came to stay from Latvia back in the summer I offered to do a little family shoot for them so they all had some nice photos of the 4 of them together.  So this is Sveta and her family –

Я люблю тебя !!

Work it girl!!  🙂 🙂 xx

Last weekend we drove up to London to visit one of my dearest school friends and her gorgeous family.  Zoe and I go back a long way (eeek we’re getting old!) and she’s one of those amazing friends that’s always there for me no matter what and if we don’t manage to speak to eachother for long periods of time (which is more than often the way!) we can still pick up where we left off.  We had a great giggle and she cooked a scrummy lunch for us all (talk about super mum!) and then we all went for a lovely walk.  They’ve actually booked me for a family photoshoot later this year in the glorious goodwood sculpture park – can’t wait!  So this was a kind of warm up / snap shot session with my kids there too!  5 boys between us – how on earth?!  Thanks for having us Zoe and Charlie – see you all soon! xx
