Hurrah for Gin EventHurrah for Gin Event

 

Katie Kirby graced us Twickenham/St.Margarets folk with her presence wit and humour tonight at the amazing event @hurrahforgin that was held at The Turks Head Pub. Congratulations also goes to to the team @we_got_this_tw for hosting a hugely successful launch event. I’m told that there are more amazing nights 'out out' for you parents to follow with the likes of @scummymummies in the diary so make sure you follow these lovely ladies  @we_got_this_tw  to be the first to hear about them.

I think I speak for all the Mums (and a couple of Dads!) who attended last night when I say that it was really refreshing to know that Katie is just as light hearted, down to earth, and naturally funny as she comes across in her books! #thedailystrugglesofarchieadams and #hurrahforgin 

In a very frank, honest and genuinely funny interview, Katie talked us through the reasons for starting her blog about the funny side to parenting which then led on to writing her infamous book Hurrah for Gin and now the just as funny if not more so sequel The Daily Struggles of Archie Adams aged 2 1/4. A Q&A session followed where the audience were able to ask Katie questions such as how she manages to juggle the work life balance with a family, how to go about starting a blog and more importantly did she have any cures for a hangover? Which she did, rather oddly Monster Munch crisps... Who knew! :) 

Throughout the night I spoke with lots of fabulous mummy's who all commented on how extremely well the event had been put together, not forgetting and appropriately so the Gin was in steady flow. Here are the photos to show how the event unfolded.

Family Lifestyle PhotographyFamily Lifestyle PhotographyFamily Lifestyle Photography. competition, hurrah for gin, katie kirby, we got this tw, february, 2018

 

Sometimes I wonder if I have the best job in the world. I know that sounds cliche right? But consider this, I’m entrusted into the privacy of people’s homes, which for me I consider to be sacred space. I’m allowed into their world to capture memorable moments for both the parents, their children and their children’s children to cherish for years to come. That alone I consider as a gift, that’s priceless. 

The best part though is that I get to meet so many kindred spirits and some unbelievably cute children and witness the beautiful and undeniable connections within their family. 

I’ll always be grateful for that. So as my way of giving something back I am running a competition exclusively for all the parents attending the @hurrahforgin event on February 6th 2018  at The Turks Head Pub hosted by @we_got_this_tw.

I've posted a little blog about this on my instagram page @lovemiss_d in which I shamefully admit to being the only mother in the world to have not been introduced to the hilariously funny book about the trials and tribulations of being a parent Hurrah for Gin written by Katie Kirby, who by the way has also written an equally hilarious follow up Hurrah for Gin: The Daily Struggles of Archie Adams (Aged 2 ¼).


So to be entered for your chance to win simply look out for the vouchers on the night with a special promo code to use. Good Luck ☘️ and see you all there!

‘We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone’ Katie Thurmes 

 

Part of the Daddy & Me series 


Daddy and Me

January 08, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I must look like a weirdo sitting here gooey eyed with a grin even a Cheshire cat would be envious of. These two, thick as thieves. I can see it now, plotting together - plenty of practical jokes for Mumma in the future. Lots more fake spiders in the bathroom hidden underneath the shower gel and fake spiders hidden underneath my pillow 😨  These two, they’re trouble in the making. As they happily play away mini man on his favourite, the swing, Daddy pulling goofey faces, I grab my camera just in time to capture this shot. ‘We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone’. I ponder on that for awhile. It’s true motherhood can sometimes seem like it’s passing by WAY too quickly! Am I alone in thinking this way? So I take photos to help me remember moments and the love and connection within our mini family.


That’s why I love my job, being a photographer I’m able to gift so many family’s with memories of their own. Who doesn’t love trawling through old photos! The way I see it when we are gone from this earth we leave behind a legacy but what about the memories for our children and our children’s children. By which time our mini man will have a million and one (and then some) photos to trawl through, which he may or may not be pleased about but I’m hoping the later 🙏🏼 I hope these photos bring him years worth of memorable moments and plenty of smiles.


Happy New Year 2018 and Why I love This Photo

January 05, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

 

As the shutter clicked and the sensor in camera did it's thing I knew in an instant this would be the one I used as my first 'Why I love this photo' post for 2018.

I don't think there's a need for an explanation with this one. But escaping the obvious, a. unbearably cute smile and b. the unbearably cute fact that he's in the midst of a melt down in stitches, I wanted a photo that pretty much summed up how my 2018 began and how it will continue.

Why I love this photo?...

For start it makes me grin alongside him like a cheshire cat and every time I look at it I burst with pride as a proud Mumma of such a beautiful soul. It makes me realise how lucky I am for the opportunity of being a mum and the gift of personal growth that comes with it. 2017 may have been a whirlwind of a year but through it all there has always been one constant in my life and I am always grateful for that.

Happy New Year all I hope your's started with a smile and hopefully a giggle or two.
