Family Holiday Photography – Wales

Recently we ventured out with our friends and their kids to North Wales for a relaxing beach holiday getaway. I went armed with my Canon DSLR and we had the best weather and the BEST light for our family holiday photography. I was beaming and couldn’t stop shooting – I took thousands of shots and have had so much fun looking through them and picking my favourites.

If you’ve followed this blog or my instagram, you’ll know I’m really into photography, particularly shooting people and particularly lifestyle photography (i.e.. capturing moments and nothing too posed).

Second and Third Trimester Antenatal Appointments

I remember when I was pregnant, there didn’t feel like there were many mummy blogs out there that offered insight to how the whole process worked, including the antenatal appointments. So I’ve been reflecting back on my pregnancy and have already shared my initial appointments and scans which usually takes you up to about week 20 of your pregnancy. But thought I’d share details of the rest of the antenatal appointments we had at weeks 25 and then into the third trimester of pregnancy…

Once you’ve had your initial antenatal appointments and the excitement of the 20-week scan, it seems a while until you get to meet your baby again. In fact, in the UK, most couples’ next appointment with the midwife or GP will be at 25 weeks pregnant…Continue reading
