the siblings project {january}


It's January, and the start of another year of monthly sibling photos of this little crew. This little crew who will grow in so many ways this year; in age, in height, and in number.

I absolutely love taking and sharing these photos every single month; documenting the bond between these three and how their relationships grow and change. And it's always exciting to be starting a new year, a new collection of photos lies ahead, and I can't wait to see where it takes us. But there is something ridiculously exciting about knowing that this line up is due a big change later in the year. It makes these photos - and the ones over the next few months - all the more precious, as they record the last days of a three that will become four.

the siblings project {december}


Could anything be more perfect for a December photo of my little trio, than snow and festive hats and matching coats? Well I don't think so. It screams Christmas and winter and feels like the perfect way to round off another year.

It's been a busy old year for these three, and a year that has just brought them all closer. We moved, we went on holiday, Everly joined Dylan at school, and we announced that they'd be getting a fourth and final team mate in the Spring. The relationship between these three, the laughter they share, their similarities and their differences, and the way they learn from one another, and love one another; just makes me so excited to see them with their new baby brother or sister next year. What a year 2018 will be for my little crew of siblings.

tree traditions


For me, Christmas is all about traditions. Looking back at my own childhood, it was those things we did year after year that stand out in my memory; those things which made our Christmases ours. And I think it's only natural that so many of those get carried over when you become a parent and get to start your own traditions.
