A Whimsical Birthday Walk


These longer photo shoots are becoming fewer and far between lately thanks to the wet Autumn weather and so on Lily's birthday I was incredibly pleased to wake to a rare crisp and clear morning instead of the usual dull grey and it seemed fate was giving us the perfect chance to dig out the camera, let the kids run around and snap away.

Both kids were adorned with crowns and wands, Lily as the birthday princess (obviously) and Archer as her trusty (ish) sidekick. 


Both crowns are from Meri Meri, one of my favourite places to go for party decorations and accessories. Archers mustard yellow wand is from Scandi Born and Lily's purple wand from Home Bargains! Also for anyone wondering Lily's dress is from Next and Archers beige romper from Another Fox

We had a really nice morning stomping through the woods although the timing probably wasn't the wisest on our part as Archer was due his nap and decided to very vocally let us know towards to the end of the trip! (We were smacked in the face by his wand several thousand times and I ended up taking him home to bed whilst James and Lily stayed out!)

Highlights for the kids included coming across some 'old ruins' in the woods. Which to them was amazing and magical and oh so fun because it had a broken old window that you could climb through. But to us as adults no longer looking at the world through the eyes of children (wah) it just looked old and dirty, covered in graffiti. And tbh was quite possibly once upon a time used as a crack den. (I did actually check the floor for needles before I let them play there, how depressing and real)

I love how the photos turned out. Whimsical and full of greenery. My favourite batch of photos for a long time. 

And so without further ado -
