Wide open spaces

This month's 10/10 circle blog is another scrapbook entry of those special one-on-one moments with my children. Audrey is my eldest daughter. The second child of four, she sits firmly in the middle of her siblings and has a big role to play as big sister and pioneer - leading the way for the younger ones. This role is not without benefits! She's my willing partner in crime and adventure. Audrey is great company and I love that she enjoys these moments as much as I do, where we can talk and share our thoughts, dreams, memories and experiences.

On this occasion we headed for Poacher's Pantry, a beautiful country setting north west of Canberra, just a step away from home. I had a maternity family photo session with some friends organised for the following day and wanted to make sure I had all my bearings beforehand. The light at that time of day can be tricky as the Winter sun sits quite low. My aim was to get as close to the 'golden hour' as possible without freezing my subjects! (The temperature drops quickly in this region!)

Audrey got up close and personal with the local sheep (a highlight of her afternoon adventure) and we both enjoyed the fresh air. As we were leaving we stopped to watch a few paragliders sailing through the air off a nearby hill top.

The following day worked out perfectly - an afternoon well-spent with friends, documenting their special time as they await the birth of their newest member of the family in a relaxed setting. 

I hope you enjoy the photos below, my photo scouting adventures with Audrey. Please remember to visit the next 10/10 blog in the circle, from Lauren of Life at Number Five.

Thanks for stopping by.

*10/10 Circle is a fun monthly photography project developed by Rowe Timson Photography, bringing my Cookie friends and lovers of photography together to document and share a piece of our lives one day each month, from our corners of the world. On the 10th of each month we launch our collective blogs, sharing 10 of our favourite photographs from that day.

Such beautiful photos of a beautiful girl. I love the shot of yourself and your girl, Diana. I'm encouraging mums to get in the picture with their kids and this kind of lovely snap is exactly why. x
