  • Letter No. 3 » Sara Tegman Photography Blog - […] Please click through our blog circle of Letters To Our Daughters. Next up, the very talented and lovely Kirsty Larmour | Abu Dhabi Photographer. […]

  • Ginger Unzueta - always love following your group and the heart of love you all share ….I adore that picture third down. your girls are just amazingly cute and always so full of love and life! xo

  • Sarah c - Oh gosh sweety these photos are a little bit of Heaven!!! I love how real they are! So much joy!!!! You have the most beautiful daughters!! I love that you all travel so much! Your girls are so blessed to see so much of the world and I can only imagine how grateful they will be to have been able to do that when they are older! You have such a special family and I just love following your adventures!!!

  • amy grace - kirsty, there is just so much joy in the eyes of your kids. there is no hint of a drop of anything phony or desired or manufactured. the happiness is pure as their beauty. the many layers of your life must be such an adventure, but must need an anchor too…and that is so obviously you, their mama. all of these layers which you navigate so naturally, with such a positive attitude, open to change, to new things, to love in all forms, is such a gift to your girls. so many of us get stuck, become afraid, live timidly. i get this strong and beautiful feeling that they are going to hold on to this joy and openness. i love this set of images. they could light up the world. i hope your christmas with them was wonderful and inspired new memories and traditions. xoxo

  • Tamar - Kirsty, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I love following these ‘letters to my daughters’ series. What a great gift to them and how wonderful to be able to put down your words on paper. Moments are always fleeting and giving ourselves the gift of writing them down is beautiful. take care. Tamar :)

  • Sara T - Could your little loves be any cuter? They seem so excited to see snow! I love that you cherish all those traditions from different families and friends and make them your own. I love their laughter and fun-loving ways….they seem so close willing to do just about anything adventurous. Your youngest looks like she is just about making a heart with throwing snow. Looks like the perfect Christmas!

  • rowe - merry christmas to you, my dear friend! i love that you all live this nomadic life… every time i stop in and see photos of the girls in the desert or some peaceful island beach it makes me long to travel too! what an amazing adventurous life your girls live that im sure will make the open and accepting as adults… such a blessing! i cant wait for our adventures to begin… keep sharing the way you do x

  • Sarah Clayton - Such beautiful heartfelt words as always Kirsty. Love your letters project and think I may do this myself in 2013. Look forward to reading your next installment!

  • julia - These amazing images are so full of joy and excitement – they make me want to join in the fun!! I love this letter, Kirsty – how incredible that your daughters are getting to taste so much of all life has to offer. What a gift to them.

  • Kati - Hello Lovely. I love looking back with you. Saffy still has her front teeth. :) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! xxx

  • Debbie Wibowo - Love all your images, Kirsty..full of fun and really shows what a fun childhood. Your daughters are so lucky to be able to experience Christmas in different ways and countries, with different people. That’s sure a wealth of experience!

  • Kate - Kirsty, this is just so you – holding them together – giving them those bonds and giving certainty to those beautiful girls in an uncertain world – Happy New Year xx

This all started when my daughter, Saffy became totally obsessed with the film The Wizard of Oz. It was topped off when early last year she saw some ruby red shoes and asked then (around March time) if she could have them for Christmas – she never wavered on what she wanted and the idea […]

  • Letters to Our Daughters | November » Emma Wood Photography - […] through this blog circle of amazing women, starting with one of the loveliest and talented women Kirsty Larmour  The images she takes of her girls always blow me away and her letters are […]

  • Emma Wood - Kirsty your images never fail to amaze me, and it’s not beccause of your stunning location, it’s because you are a beutifiul connected photographer who sees thing that others miss. Another lovely blog post to your sweet girls. <3

  • Debbie Wibowo - Oh Kristy..what an awesome location and the pics where they stood on the roof of the car is super awesome! As a mom, I think of all us can definitely relate to more TV/movie time and I always feel guilty about it. I love reading the part how you spend the quality time with your daughters..cuddling and sharing stories. They sure are memorable.

  • amy grace - kirsty, your images are always so incredibly striking, so perfect. the places you find, that surround you seem to match your spirit. your daughters will know their mother as a force of nature, as someone who models the drive and hope and optimism that will get them where they dream of going. life gets busy, and sometimes in those times, we find our strength, resourcefulness and independence. they are finding their way with you as their loving guide, showing them their deep beauty. the quiet times in between that you describe are ever the more precious. it is your perfect. keep basking in that stunning light you find. you inspire me xoxo

  • Ginger Unzueta - Love your letter so much. I adore all of your work really!! I sometimes feel that guilt, of saying just a minute to much at times. But our love is what holds us through it all. Lovely !!!

  • Sarah Cornish - Oh Kirsty I so admire your honesty and I can relate a million percent! Your words really resonate with me and I know they are going to mean the world to your girls! I think this is one thing all of us mamas can relate to so well! Your images as always are absolutely breath taking. Those little ladies of yours couldn’t be any more gorgeous!!

  • Sara T - Oh WOW. Those of your girls on the top of the car and your eldest under the tree, the two of them hugging, my favs. I love that you “love them higher than the highest mountain and down again”. It is the best to hear how we express our love in a way they can comprehend. I think it is so lovely to hear about putting your “busies” into perspective and time of year. It is okay that we do have them watching more movies than we would like. And beans and toast? I want that recipe. I’ll bet it’s a good one :) Beautiful, Kirsty.

  • Lena - I love your letters to the girls! And while I know how busy this time of year is for you (I myself had to resort to the TV more than i care to admit), you are such a wonderful Mom and your girls will have so amazing fond memories of their childhood. And toast and beans for dinner sounds pretty yummy to me! :)

  • shalonda - oooohhhh kirsty! i feel ya mama its def a pretty crazy time of the year…BUT…i love your outlook on it! WHen i quit my “real job” to be a mom i always heard that little ugly voice in my brain saying “but what will your daughters think of you, just staying home?!” then my life took this path and i found photography and i realized just how much they will learn from me and me “just staying home” :) wonderfully said and beautifully finished…as YES THERE IS ALWAYS TIME FOR SNUGGLES. xoxo sweet friend

  • Val Spring - Oh Kirsty, you have no idea how identify I feel with this letter! It’s been the same way around here. You know you are not the only one. But what you said is so true. it’s good for them to see how hard you work to help have the lifestyle that you have and it’s ok for them to have to wait or to hear a “not today” every now and then. And as you said, there’s ALWAYS time for some snuggles. :) I just love reading your letters and looking at the gorgeous photos of your sweet girls. Your life is so fun to watch from this side of the world! Thanks for sharing it :)

  • Rashmi - Now I want beans on toast… reminds me of my childhood. :)
    I love what you wrote Kirsty.. this season is like that for all of us isn’t it? I am going to remember what you said.. that it is GOOD for the girls to see a hard working mum… that sometimes that is okay and they can fend for themselves a little more than usual. Just reading that I let go of a little bit of mom guilt I was feeling myself. I can’t wait to meet you someday.. i feel like we are kindred spirits. xo

  • Project 10 December 2012 | Abu Dhabi Lifestyle Photographer » Kirsty Larmour Photography – Abu Dhabi Lifestyle Photography - […] as I mentioned in my last Letter to the girls this time of year get crayzeeeeee! And I totally ran out of time for my Project 10 – but […]

  • rowe - i adore these images of the girls! what beautiful, honest, heartfelt words too… this time of year is such a busy time… mummy guilt is so tough cause its a constant struggle trying to get the balance just right but you are an amazing mum and your girls are so lucky to have a mum who will inspire them to reach for the stars! if you work hard, anything is possible! i really love this project! rowe x

I loved hanging out at he beach late one sunny afternoon with these three – while they were still a threesome….We sang, and danced, and played peekabo and swang and made sandcastles More of the new addition when he arrived coming soon Until then…. Kirsty

  • shalonda - “believe that life is good, because it IS” what an incredibly powerful bundle of lessons all summed up into one. and what a beautiful way to celebrate LIFE sweet friend xoxo

  • amy grace - oh kirsty, in these few paragraphs, and these other-worldly beautiful pictures, i feel like i just got a tiny glimpse into the warm light of your soul. tears are flowing and love is sent to you, and your brave soul. your openness and kindness is infused in every word. you are so lucky to be matched together. i feel it an honor to read what you’ve shared.

  • Sarah c - Oh sweet love!!! I’m in tears!! This is amazing sweety! The sentiments, the photos. What a treasure for your girls! I am so sorry for your loss!! :( life’s lessons can be devastatingly hard! :(

  • Debbie Wibowo - Kristy…your letter is just wonderful. As I am reading your letter, I can’t stop nodding my head, agreeing to what you wrote. Your photography is also beautiful with all the different angles and pov. I can’t wait to see your next post.

  • jaime lackey - oh my goodness. such a sad letter with such a beautiful lesson. one that everyone she hear. i am so sorry for your loss but so thankful for what it has made you and will make your girls! xoxoxo

  • Amy Lucy Lockheart - Oh Kirsty, I think this might be my favorite letter of yours…I can just feel the emotion in every word you wrote. You, my friend, are someone who lives life to the fullest and I see you instilling that important lesson in your girls everyday. Your words ring so true and are a great reminder of how life should be treasured. Your images are stunning. xoxo

  • Sara T - I love your wisdom and that you marked the occasion of this letter with a sad and tragic memory and anniversary. That is okay to mourn and through the mourning, remembering and sadness life is SO MUCH clearer, sharp and succinct. I love your teachings and “life lessons”. I don’t think we learn how to dream enough. You are a true worldly inspiration and no doubt your babes will learn so much from you. Beautiful imagery, as always.

  • Kati - With tears in my eyes you said it best hon. Cheers to living life full speed ahead. xx

I loved this session – loved how excited they were about baby’s impending arrival… not to mention loved how amazing Mum-to-be looked and how she was game for so many ideas for her maternity shoot.
