Loving photography

It seems that I am getting the dates a little wrong when it comes to some of the topics.Oh well. I meant to do a post on photography this week. Now I realise that that was the topic of a few days ago. Since the topics are optional, I decided to post on this topic anyway today.

I always loved taking pictures from a certain age, There is something about it that interests and fascinates me. I love looking at beautiful pictures too. At some time in my life I decided to work in a photo studio. I would sell photo products, book photo and video sessions for parties, handle orders and take pictures in the studio too. I also was in training for video and photo work at parties.
It was actually very exciting and I learned a lot from it but at a certain time I changed jobs to help someone out and then moved abroad.

I always wanted to do a photography course to learn to take better pictures but unfortunately all I did was order an online course and then never taking it because I was too busy. I still hope to do a course one day.

I love taking pictures at weddings and sometimes I think that I would love to be a freelance photographer. I have a lot of learning to do though.

Lately, I mostly photograph my girls. Unfortunately I don't even have a normal camera now (just one on my old phone ) so the pictures I take are nothing much but I just love to have a record of some things that have happened. Just creating a record of some memories. 
I love my pictures.  They mean so much to me. Losing pictures through broken or stolen phones, broken memory cards, broken or stolen laptops or pc's really hits me hard. It really breaks my heart and it takes some time before I am over it.
Even though I must say that I have too many pictures that I have never printed out or did anything with and I think I should at least do more with some of them This would help me to be able to keep them too.

So that is my plan, to that one day. To look through my thousands of pictures and pick the most special ones out and/or put them online somewhere,

Today I wanted to share some of my favourite pictures. I have not tried hard to find them. I remember an email I sent someone two years ago in which I attached some of my favourite pictures that I recently had taken of my kids. So I decided to share some of those. Most of them were taken with a camera. Only the one from Nevaeh in the car, I took with my phone.

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Mummy, I need your 'pookie'

It’s World Breastfeeding Week from August 1st to August 7th 2013 and this year’s theme is Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers. You can read more about it on The focus is on community support, particularly in the form of peer-to-peer support.
To show support for World Breastfeeding Week, the Irish Parenting Bloggers group is holding a blog march about varied breastfeeding experiences, including experiences with breastfeeding support in Ireland. This inspired me to write a post about breastfeeding as well.

My breast feeding journey
When I was pregnant with my first child, I decided that it would be a great idea to combine breast- and bottle feeding. But in the hospital they convinced me how healthy and important it was to breastfeed exclusively and then I decided to go that road. I got a breast pump to express milk so my baby could get a bottle with breast milk when I was out and about or for the scarce times that I would leave her in the care of h…
