Project 10 – June 2013 | Abu Dhabi Lifestyle Photographer

Project 10 time again – 10 photos throughout one day day…

I’ve been totally inspired by a project some of my photographer friends have been doing called “Kids were here” (See Summer and Ginger‘s take on this). It’s a project that documents the little ways our kids make their presence felt – I think we Mums can all relate – one day after the girls had gone to school I wandered around our apartment and photographed the little pieces of them they’d left behind… the dirty towels, the lined up toys, the love notes, the stickers on walls they shouldn’t be… the little things can can drive us crazy, or we can see them expressing themselves and becoming the little people we love to see blossom…. here’s a small collection of the things I found on just that one day…

Evidence of the previous days paintingHome made ant curtain clipA whole new land to have adventures in…. A yoyo, a cup, lipbalm, a pencil sharpener and the TV remote – doesn’t everyone have these things lined up handy on the arm of their sofa? The current reading list…One single sticker and shadows (living room wall!)Piano playing hedgehoglined up waiting for her returnThe poor boy fairy needed a rest – slap bang in the middle of their bedroom floor!

These are such little treasures – sure, when I say “tidy your animals” I don’t mean put them in a line across your bed, but these are the little things my kids do – the little things that show they were here, that show their creativity and them expressing themselves 😀

Next time I think I’ll document the series of mini-messes the kids leave over a month, not just a day…  Now head on over to see my friend Nancy of Nancy Lary Studios and see what they’ve been up to this month… until next time, Kirsty xx

I'm Kirsty Hello There!


Hi, I'm Kirsty, a lifestyle photographer and photography educator who lives in India. My approach to photography is to capture real life – with a little sparkle on top fueled by my obsession with pretty light. I want to treasure the moments that need to be remembered.

Grab a cup of tea and have a roam around my blog to see my photography style and ideas. (Check out the Details section up there on the menu bar, and the FAQ's for lots of info too). I post pictures on here from recent photo sessions, as well as some personal photo projects and some ramblings about life in general. Leave some love, check my page out over on Facebook to stay up to date, and come back again soon,

Kirsty xx
