siblings {july}


Right, I'm calling it... officially my new favourite photo of the two of them. Mainly because I think it captures the true nature of their personalities and their relationship. You can just tell there is cheekiness going on by simply looking at them. And that tends to be the story of our days. The biggest smiles always come from a sneaky bit of mischief, and sneaky mischief always happens when they are together.

I snapped these photos after they were having a particularly enthusiastic bed jumping session, which appears to be a new favourite thing for them to do, which is kind of annoying when you've just made the bed... for the fifth time that day. But the conspiratorial giggles and the shared naughty glances totally make up for the crumpled sheets and strewn pillows... just.



We're on that run down to the summer holidays, where we seem to be so so busy, but can see the days free of routines on the horizon and we're just chasing to catch them. I'm looking forward to spending some quiet days with this pair with no preschool, classes or work getting in the way; and I can't wait to spend some exciting days with them too. But right now some lazy days of cuddles and fresh air and hand holding and sunshine seem like a little piece of heaven! We love our routines, our naps, our bed time, our schedule... but the summer holidays are made for bending those rules a bit, and I can't wait.

This month I am sending you to visit the lovely Amber over at Goblin Child where her gorgeous twin boys will no doubt be being adorable. Amber always takes the most beautiful photos of them, that seem to burst with character; you won't be disappointed.

dear beautiful

  7. What beautiful images of your gorgeous two! It's the first time I'm linking up to the #Siblings Project, but I'm hoping to be taking part every month, it's just so lovely. I aspire to your level of gorgeous photography of them. I still have a while to go, but I'm happy I get to document their bond nonetheless.

  8. What IS it with bed jumping?? My two absolutely LOVE it — it's by far their favourite pastime. I'm going to be needing a new mattress at this rate! Love their cheeky smiles — they're so sweet x #Siblings

  13. I love their cheeky faces, you can see so much emotion there it is beautiful. Mine always have the biggest giggles when they are jumping on the bed (or the sofa which is becoming a favourtie too, much to my horror!) it's hard to tell them to stop when I love to hear them laugh! xx

  14. I agree Lucy, I am going with you and saying these are my favorite photos of yours ever! Hard to say that as there is always so many but it really shows their love, their cheekiness, their happiness in in their beautiful smiles. It's such a precious thing to capture and jumping on the bed was always my favorite thing to do with my siblings too. What a great memory to have in your childhood. Thank you ever so much for hosting. Hope you enjoy your wind down to summer relaxing and fun and that the weather stays nice for yall. Missing you from the states. Lots of love.

  16. Lucy these are absolutely gorgeous photos! I'm not surprised they are your new favourites! They do look rather cheeky and I love that you captured them after a bed jumping session! Ethan loves to jump all over our bed and I secretly can't wait to be able to watch him and Logan having fun jumping all over our bed one day! It's just SO much fun to do when you're a child! xx
