A Day In The Life | Chatham-Kent Lifestyle Photography

A Day In The Life is something I have wanted to do with Archer for a long time. There are so many things about him right now that I want to remember, and since our world is about to be rocked (in the best way!) by his first sibling, I thought this would be a good time to do it. These images are by no means award-winning, nor are they a reflection of my most creative work, but they are us, and they are perfect. I have also been playing lately with some filmy edits, which I am not sold on, but I think they bring a nice little touch to these snaps of our daily life. Plus, I live life on the edge.

Also, this post is picture heavy, so please be patient while it loads, it may be slow!

Enough rambling.


February 29, 2016.

It is not often that I am awake before Archer on a day we are spending at home. I really enjoy when he comes into our bed in the mornings to wake me up, but by 8:15 I couldn’t sleep any longer and my body was begging to be moved. A nice slow wake up in bed gave me the time to prepare for doing a Day In The Life project, which I thought would be special since it was February 29th, a bonus day, which by chance I had off work and could be at home.
