Life and Photography

Wow what a busy month it's been. The Porter household has returned to a fully functioning transport system for our two children.

Me and Claire are both back at work full time, which has meant the kids are back into the routine of grandparents and child minder child care while we're doing our 'day jobs'. 

Family Meal

I just wanted to share a few photos of Ethan following a family meal we had today. We were out celebrating Ethan's Granddad's birthday. 

Ethan was on good form as usual, providing some great expressions, including a new one, the sticking out his tongue. We were lucky enough to be sat in a great location within the pub, lovely window light and a great lamp behind Ethan providing a lovely rim light. 

I particularly love the final image where Ethan just wanted to relax, resting his head on his hand.

Ethan Smash The Cake

Ethan celebrated his first birthday with a smash the cake photo shoot taken by his daddy.

It was a slow start with Ethan choosing to pick the chocolate balls off the top of the cake instead of digging in, but once he'd been shown the way (by his chocolate loving mummy of course), he really enjoyed some yummy chocolate cake! The shades really topped things off.

Ethan loves to laugh and smile and he duly entertained us during this photo shoot. 

Of course a bath was needed straight after, but as Ethan loves his baths, I think this was close to being Ethan's perfect day!

It's amazing how quickly a year goes, Ethan has transformed in front of our eyes into a wonderful little boy, who brings us joy each and every day. 

Here's hoping that the next year will see even more fun, laughter and happiness with our little boy.
