The other day, I was looking through old photographs of the children on my blog, and I came across our day-in-the-life photographed by Antonina Mamzenko back in January of this year. I was instantaneously transported back to that period in our lives where the girls were still breastfeeding and so small, and our sons were not half so verbal as they are now – a time when they laughed less but giggled more, and though we were almost painfully happy, we were still finding our feet as a family with four children. Those memories are so precious to me. I would recommend that everyone have a session with Antonina, that they gift themselves the documentation of a day in their lives.
That said, a full day with a talented photographer isn’t inexpensive, so I wanted to try to document my own DITL – the last recorded full day before my boys turn three.
Our ordinary beautiful day.
If you’re still here after scrolling through alllll of these images, I’d love to send you to the friends whom I challenged to document their own DITLs.
Zoe, who has four small children including the red-haired twins of dreams.
Kaye, my kid fashion twin. Prepare to swoon over her stunning website, which she designed herself.
And Kirsty, whose photography has been wowing me this year and who has the most adorable baby boy, Harrison.
Does a day in your life look anything like ours?
