I like to take photos of things. Mostly peoples. Mostly pretty peoples, if I'm honest. But sometimes toys, or dogs, or maybe a tree. Y'know, interesting stuff.
I shoot a few burlesque shows, but that's just to kill time between photoshoots with models, where I can control the light and the pose and the magic.
My photos will have the tag "my photo". Otherwise, it's stolen from the vast wilderness that is the internet. I usually source pics from Model Mayhem, Flickr or We <3 it.
You wanna look me up elsewhere?
Today, we went on an adventure to Rozelle / Alloway for an adventure feeding the ducks / touching metal mice!
Soph liked to remind each duck that they were lucky as she threw the bread to them. She then said “Don’t shout at me!” and refused to give bread to one of the ducks.
We went for a mini wander into the woods, but saw neither a Gruffalo nor a Totoro. Sake.
There’s a reason we never enter Sophie into baby beauty contents ; it would just be plain unfair to the other kids! #toddler #dadblr #sophie #parenting #cute
I know it’s a million years “ahead of schedule” but Sophie wanted to put the Christmas tree up, and decorate it. So we did.
Here she is dressed as one of Santa’s elves / little helpers and she managed to hang a grand total of 2 decorations ( one of which fell down 30 seconds later ) before she got bored and wanted to watch Peppa Pig instead.
Still, you can’t deny she looks cute as fuck thou.

For those poor unfortunate souls who don’t have me on Facebook ( and thus can’t see all the wedding photos ) here’s another wee handful for you!
Sneak peek at my wedding photos.
For those who don’t know my face, I’m the one with the glasses and the beard, usually standing next to the chick in the wedding dress.

So, here’s what’s been happening in my life:
Sophie being adorable;
I got the Splinter Cell Super Made of Liquid Sex Special Edition that comes with a watch that lights up in the style of Sam Fisher’s NVGs.
And Soph was wearing a Firefly tshirt today ( Soph, Katie and myself all own the same tshirt in our respective sizes…Today, Katie and Soph had the same shirt on, but mine was in the wash :( So we didn’t all match )
For a halloween party at playgroup, Katie dressed as a cat, and Sophie dressed as a dinosaur.
I didn’t get to dress up, because I was stuck at work.
When my mum started watching Sophie on Mondays while Katie and I were at work, I taught her how to use Instagram.
And it’s been so worthwhile! I can sneak onto Instagram on my phone, during my working day and see photos like:
And I feel better for seeing her…like, I know what she’s doing and that makes me miss her just a fraction less.
But Tuesdays……Tuesdays she’s at nursery. And, I would just love it if the nursery had a live video feed, or an instagram or a facebook where they could routinely post photos…but, obviously, uploading a load of photos of toddlers onto a website, is kinda frowned upon. Quite rightly.
But I just miss her, and can’t help but wonder what games she’s playing or if she’s painting or even just, is she happy at nursery?
Because she cries every time we drop her off. Every time.
But when we pick her up, she always tells us all the fun things she did during the day.
