I recently bumped into an acquaintance/colleague who has a small baby a few months younger than Sebastian. We were talking about the joys of parenthood and he recounted a story about making a sandwich for dinner and saving half for later, only to return to the fridge in the evening to find not the second half of his sandwich but a dirty nappy.
Why am I telling you this?
Because as I write this blog today, I should be working on a project. It's a big project which more than likely is one of the best opportunities that an emerging artist such as myself could be offered, but my brain is so fried from lack of sleep that all I could do was stare at the screen for 40 minutes trying to figure out where to start and then pretty much give up.
And that has been my life for the last 4 weeks.
I think but can't quite recall that my last post was about how wonderful life has been since I got fired and started focusing on my own work, well it has been. It has been so amazing, I have been presented with many opportunities to work on art projects, commercial work and events, for which I am so grateful.
We have also moved, had my Mum come to stay, Sebastian turned 1 (I decided to have an undersea theme party and handmade all the decorations???) and since his birthday he's been sick and teething.
So I'm a little bit tired.
To celebrate this fantastically busy month, and especially Sebastians first birthday, I'm going to share with you some photos from a series I started with Sebastian before things got quite so hectic. I wasn't sure where I was going to go with these images, but the reason behind them was to give me something to focus on each day while me and Seabass were together every day for 8 hours straight, so that we didn't drive each other crazy!
Another reason I started taking them is because, as a lot of mums would know, we are usually the one behind the camera so we often get left out of family pictures, and it can seem sometimes that we were never even part of the story.
This one is for all the Mums :)
Thanks for reading,
