The past few days I have been “modelling” vintage clothing (insert 😬🤭 emoji’s from my 12 year old daughter) for our @thriftupvintage auction in an attempt to capture good indoor light during the day (when our regular models are at school)!📚☀️📷 My backdrop is close to a large window, and I have my (very handmade) “tripod” in front of the window. This works amazing for about two hours after lunch, but is too bright in the morning and too dark around 3pm😩😬. I am a total perfectionist, and spent all day today trying to get decent pictures, but only ended up with 5 items photographed🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️. Does anyone have any tips on how to make the “good light” last longer than 2 hours?! I would be forever thankful!!💙🙏🏻💡🙆🏼‍♀️ #indoorphotoshoot #indoorphotography #cellphonephotography #thriftlife

She is water: powerful enough to drown you. Soft enough to cleanse you. 🌊

LIVING for this beach session with the unreasonably beautiful @alannahlux 😍

Which are you more drawn to, color or black & white?

The prettiest pink sunset for this Mama to be. After 3 boys she finally gets some pink in her life. 💞 .

Birthday week
.
A reminder to myself this upcoming b-day, as I often judge myself too harshly
.
Self compassion is
not judging yourself or allowing others to judge you, not blaming yourself, getting to know and accepting yourself, forgiving yourself, helping yourself overcome insecurities, respecting yourself and loving yourself
.
I am compassionate, kind and good hearted, what about you
.
As a celebration and gift to you for following along, I'll be posting a huge special sale in my stories, going up in the shop tmrw so stay tuned ⧊

In her initial inquiry Annie wrote:
"I just gave birth to my second son and would love to get some pictures of him while he’s still super tiny since they grow so fast! I was wondering if you have any availability for a day in the life shoot? Not a typical newborn shoot or anything but something that captures the first real moments of our family going from 3 to 4."
*
Over the phone I found out that their oldest son Lev is only 11 months old, which means that there are technically two babies in the house. Of course, compared to a newborn Theo, Lev all of a sudden seemed so big and mature. When I asked Annie what was her biggest challenge on this journey, she said that being pregnant for, what felt like, almost 2 years straight was really hard. And I bet it was!
*
While there was not a lot of interaction between the boys during the session, I kept thinking how lucky they are to have each other and to be so close in age. Lev won't remember his life without Theo and I am sure very soon they'll become the best buddies and "partners in crime".
*
During our half day Day In The Life Noam's parents came from Germany to visit and meet the baby, which added another set of precious memories to the family's album.

Floor-to-ceiling windows will work to make a room appear grander, more expansives. They work especially well at making even the smallest of corners appear larger.

Hello. I’m a girl, a long way from home. Things are different here. Some are good differences, some aren’t. But being here has changed me in a way that when I do go home, it isn’t quite home anymore. I suppose that’s why I’m here... to find what home means now, and by accepting something that I have always been drawn to, I hope I find home along the way.

Hi Happy Friday Everyone! What are you doing today? I am sewing curtains 🍒🧵 Hope you all have a great weekend 🥰.

Hi Happy Friday Everyone! What are you doing today I am sewing curtains 🍒🧵 Hope you all have a great weekend 🥰.

Yesterday, I had the honor of photographing LT Michael Wells funeral. He was a firefighter with the Lenexa Fire Department, diagnosed with cancer last year. He fought for 11 months, never once complaining or giving up hope. His joy in life was his family, a gorgeous wife Katie and 3 precious children. He also loved and dedicated his life to his career, he was an award winning home brewer and an accomplished athlete in his younger years. He loved helping others, frequently putting others first before his own needs. Michaels smile would light up any room he entered, larger than life. 
It was my honor to be apart of such a beautiful celebration of life and love. His legacy lives on in the stories we share and in the charities he loved. If you’d like to make a donation in his memory, you can do so with Answering the Call or to his children’s scholarship funds. Message me if you’d like to know more about either of those. 
Thank you for living your life as an incredible example for others, Michael. Choose the wrench. #bekindformike

We’ve been on the road for four days now and Charlie has been the BEST 🙌🏻 he definitely hates the car seat now and has wanted to get out more and more as the days have progressed, but overall he has been a champ this whole road trip 💪🏻🏆🥇 We’re two and a half hours away from our end goal!

Little mister Asher wanted to stay awake for his shoot. He knew it was his first big day in front of the camera & he didn’t want to miss it! After some milk, cuddles (&, of course, peeing a bit on his photographer), he finally passed out & let me capture his fresh sweetness. Worth the wait :)

It’s Harvest Season! 🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎 We learnt a good tip to plucking those apples, turn it upside down instead of pulling it off the branches. This prevent other apples from coming off because of the pull force. This may seems like common sense to communities with access to fruit picking. But for city folks, such knowledge is not in our textbooks.. Cherishing every opportunity to learn.

it's finally fall so I can really start dressing

Catching their breath, just kidding - I was the one out of breath they were totally fine, after walking up 600+ stairs.

Catching their breath, just kidding - I was the one out of breath they were totally fine, after walking up 600+ stairs.

This is why I do what I do. This is why I’m not all about the stand there and say cheese. I want those REAL smiles! I want you to look back and remember scrunched noses, little hands, and the feeling of how little he was sitting next to you.

La trilogía más linda que alguien te pueda contar. Cada uno con su historia. La de ellos que ya fue escrita y la de el que esta escribiéndose. .

Me conecto tanto con esto que no me cabe en el pecho todo el amor que puedo llegar a sentir por una sola foto. Esta de aquí en particular, me tiene pensando desde hace mucho tiempo lo que podría llegar a ser y aquí está el resultado de lo que es.

Esta de aquí en particular, me tiene pensando desde hace mucho tiempo lo que podría llegar a ser y aquí está el resultado de lo que es. . . . #cameramama #candidmoments #candidchildhood #childrenseemagic #childhoodmemories #childhoodunplugged #magicofchildhood #magicofmotherhood #childofig #thelifestylecollective #featurememozi #click_vision #clickmagazine #beyondwanderlust #oph #nikonasia #iamnikon #pixel_kids

H U R R A H ▪️for the weekend because this week has been somewhat testing. Just had tomorrow’s shoot postponed due to poorly children. I don’t mind. It happens. I have two snotty nosed children myself who would not photograph very well this weekend either (They’ve not cracked a smile all week!). And do you know what - I’m self employed so I am going to give myself a weekend off shooting! I am very much hoping to carve out five minutes of peace over the next day or two. I’ll let you know how that one goes. I might have to lock myself in the garage (no one dares enter for the enormous spiders! I can live with that 🤣). What are you lovely lot up to over the weekend? .

On se souvient les interminables repas de Noël, les parties de cache-cache avec les cousins dans le jardin, l’odeur des meubles cirés et de la soupe, le fauteuil de Papy où jamais on n’oserait s’asseoir, la grande rampe d’escalier sur laquelle on glissait en cachette, les chaussures de grand-maman que l’on mettait en essayant de ne pas tomber, la porcelaine « du dimanche » et les nappes tellement lourdes qu’elle ne mettait jamais…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tous ces moments font parties de leur vie, de votre vie… et de ce lieu qu’ils s’apprêtent bientôt à quitter !⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
N’est-il pas urgent, lorsque ce moment est venu, d’en garder une trace et de coucher ces souvenirs sur le papier pour qu’ils traversent les années !⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I used to be all things pumpkin spice and everything nice, but over the years I have been less and less of a fan. Anyone else?? Maybe its because everything pumpkin spice flavored is extremely sweet now.... 🤷‍♀️🤔 There is something different for sure! 
Oh well, main point of this is that I found this DIVINE dairy free coffee creamer that is Pumpkin Spice flavored! And get this.... It has ACTUAL pumpkin puree in it! 😍 Which after typing this out, sound pretty gross. But seriously so SO GOOD! 😅 It tastes like pumpkin pie for cryin out loud!!! 😍🥧😍🥧😍 I have way to many cups of coffee a day now because of this glorious creamer.... So yeah, I'll be looking like a thick piece of pumpkin pie by the end of the season. 😂

Anywho..... That's all. Carry on with your day. 🙈 •

You would never guess this breathtaking momma was glowing for the 4th time. Just wow! Simply stunning. After 3 boys, she will finally get to meet her princess 💗

Such a fun night with this amazing family! We drove home from Vegas yesterday, I grabbed a snack and ran back out the door to meet them! So much personality in all those cute little people you see. I can’t wait to show you more!

Oh Blighty it’s been far too long! After two years since my last visit, it feels so good to be back in England with all the familiar smells, sights and (unfamiliar) sunshine! Having started my on-off love affair with the UK at boarding school aged 11, it always feels like home and it definitely helps when the sun keeps shining. It’s hard to beat the UK in the sun! Spending the past week traveling around various cities seeing family and friends and having some time disconnected has felt glorious! Excuse me while I spam you with London life, family fun and an upcoming wedding in Salcombe. England you beauty, you never looked so good! 🇬🇧✈️

Sometimes I wonder if others get lost in an image the way that I do. The expressions that are so telling. The posture that hints to so much of their personality. Timid on the surface, but so much magic behind those eyes. The way her hands are fidgeting a little because she’s feeling a bit unsure of this stranger snapping pictures. But the sweet smile that bubbles to the surface in spite of feeling hesitant. Mix all that with the timelessness of a black and white...and I’m a big sappy pile of mush. Envisioning this little lady as a granny in a rocking chair with a gaggle of grandkids surrounding her. They’re looking at these pictures and imagining what kind of a toddler she was, but they don’t have to guess much because these are so telling. And I’m sure they’ll be thinking “Our Granny was a sweetheart right from the start.” 💕

It's a beautiful Friday morning and even though life is pretty crazy right now, I am so grateful and excited for all that is about to come. Baby Key (my niece) will be here any moment now and then in just one week my dear friend of 20 years will be saying "I do". Bring on the waterworks🥰😭

Hey everyone! I’m Kathleen with @faithboundtravel and I’m so excited to be hanging out with you all today! On July 8th of this year my husband and three kiddos ages 9, 3, and 1, decided to leave the Arizona desert and take off in a 300 square foot RV to adventure throughout the US! I can’t wait to share more and see more of your amazing adventures with your kids. So tell me, where are some of your favorite places you have ever been? ✨

He loves his wife dearly and can’t stop smiling when he’s around her. He seriously couldn’t take his eyes off of her our entire time together! Before I could even greet these two, Jim was sharing with me how long they have been married, beaming wholeheartedly with every bit of his being.

Every now and again I get to have two people who have loved each other for over half a century!
.
This summer during an extended family session, meeting Jim and Emilie was a highlight of the day for me. Family legacy and heirlooms fill my heart to the fullest and Jim reminded me so much of my own grandfather (also named Jim!). It’s beautiful to witness a love that strong after 63 years together.

I have a feeling that the 2020 JFC lineup will consist of a lot more celebrations of lifetime love ❤

Fave Powder Brushes.
___________________________________________
The Real Techniques Powder Brush (R250) - this award-winning brush is so soft and fluffy! There's no scratchy feeling and I have not experienced any shedding with this brush (granted I've only had it for a year). The top of the bristles taper slightly so the application of powder products is easy and precise. Seriously, this brush does an excellent job at blending setting powder seamlessly onto the skin.
___________________________________________
The BH Cosmetics V1 Vegan Large Powder Brush (around $4) is also a lovely powder brush. The shape is a little different to the RT one - rounded instead of tapered. I prefer using this brush when I don't need to apply powder in a precise manner. I also enjoy using this brush for applying bronzer if I don't want to be precise with it. Also, I have not experienced any shedding with this brush.
___________________________________________
To be honest, I use these brushes interchangeably since they're pretty similar so I can't really say which one is better than the other. It's worth noting that the BH Cosmetics brush is cheaper (yet less accessible for South Africans) while the Real Techniques brush is pricier yet easily accessible. I purchased the BH Cosmetics brush from Beauty Bay.

Various Empties Part 25.
___________________________________________
Skinoren Gel (R270 at Clicks or local pharmacies) - I don't really like using the term 'miracle-worker' when it comes to skincare products but that's the only way to describe this product. Thanks to the azelaic acid in it, this cream is the most effective acne treatment I've ever used. It is super effective in healing cystic acne and other acneic inflammation and it leaves a velvet matte finish on the skin. Repurchase? Already have! In fact, I've already used about 3 tubes of this in 2019.
___________________________________________
The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream - this was a disappointment. The formula is lightweight and creamy so this eye cream applies well and absorbs pretty fast. But it wasn't moisturizing or hydrating enough for my dry undereyes. Also, I didn't notice any other skincare benefits with using this product. Repurchase? Nope.

Do you have any recent product empties? Comment down below!

This past week has been exhausting and emotionally taxing. But I will get back to posting beauty reviews soon. That being said, I don't want to take away from the severity of what's currently happening in South Africa. So I will try to be consistent with spreading awareness and posting updates regarding upcoming protests.

How are you all doing?

That being said, I don't want to take away from the severity of what's currently happening in South Africa. So I will try to be consistent with spreading awareness and posting updates regarding upcoming protests. How are you all doing

Devinah Cosmetics Haul.

I purchased 3 matte eyeshadows and 1 multichrome eyeshadow. 'Esme' is a gorgeous periwinkle-lavender, 'Courtney' is a grungy mustard-green, 'Patina' is a medium green and Pavonine is a blue-purple-green-red multichrome. The matte eyeshadows have a formula that's unlike anything I've ever used. They're ridiculously pigmented and smooth and the consistency is a little thick and so creamy that the eyeshadows are almost sticky. In addition, the mattes blend really well but it's best to slowly build up the pigmentation. They are powdery so there's some kick-up in the pan (but no fallout when applied to the lid). On top of a good, tacky primer, the matte eyeshadows last the entire day.

Pavonine is also pigmented, smooth and creamy. But it's best applied with a finger and there's zero kick-up or fallout. Because it's a multichrome, this eyeshadow is either blue-purple, green or red (depending on the angle and lighting) and it looks so stunning on the lids. Because of the thicker formula, this eyeshadow does transfer above the crease after around 4 hours of wear. That being said, the intensity of this eyeshadow does not fade.

I really like these eyeshadows and I think Devinah Cosmetics is a brand worth keeping an eye out for.
