By your side | Artifact Motherhood, December 2023

I wanted to share something meaningful to wrap the year up. Maybe a post about our scary experiences being stuck in the Himalayas this summer. Or something about the joy of long train journeys. Possibly a reflection of how you’re growing up into remarkable young ladies – but I’m your Mama, of course I’d say that….

But time ran away, as it so often does when we’re living life to it’s fullest, yet also leaning into the necessary quiet moments and allowing ourselves stillness. This time of year in particular, with Diwali and travels, and Christmas and weddings, and parties, and socialising and school stuff – we love it, but it’s full. Oh and work too, there’s always that! And I love seeing you both embracing the opportunities life throws at you, and knowing how blessed you are to have them. And how in this turbulent world not everyone has this kind of privilege, nor the safety and security we have.

So I’ll stop that rambling now. I just want you both to know that through all those ups and downs, the scary moments and the exuberantly joyful ones it’s the biggest privilege of my life to be by your side.

I love you my girlies, Mama xxxx

This post is part of Artifact Motherhood, a collaboration of artists/mothers from around the world. Sharing stories of the joys and struggles of our journey. Our hopes and dreams for our children. With little nuggets of wisdom or reflections on life here and there. These are more than photographs with dates written on the back. These are the artifacts we are leaving behind for our children and the generations to come.

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,
