Portraits of my Children | 39/52

This week’s photos have definitely got that autumnal feel about them and I couldn’t be happier about it. In fact bring me more, I want crisp autumn mornings, I want jumper and woolly hat weather as I’m a sucker for a kid in a novelty winter hat! Both photos this week were taken during a walk through the park on one of the few really sunny days we’ve had recently.

Lyra’s photo is my new favourite picture of her. I know that i say that a lot but I love her expression, I love the fallen leaves around her and I even love her dirty hands and grubby face! This a picture of a girl who was having a really fun day and nothing makes me happier than seeing her happy.

Athena’s as usual is much more serious. It’s getting ridiculous now, she is such a smiley baby but as soon as I get out a camera I get this expression. Well joke is on you Athena because I happen to love this expression, it really emphasises her cheeks!

Linking up with What the Redhead Said and her Living Arrows. You can catch up on previous weeks here.
