Home Life Project – January

by Clare Mansell
Home Life Project – January

To start this post I’d like to welcome anyone who is new to this project this year, you are all welcome and I really hope you enjoyed stretching your creativity over the weekend and captured some moments that you might otherwise have missed.

I took my photos yesterday and we had typical January weather, we got out of bed in near darkness, walked the dogs in drizzle and fog and watched the night close in while we had our afternoon cup of tea. Not very cheerful weather, but an honest and accurate image of what an average day is like at this time of year.

Activity wise, Theo had his weekly iPad time, then he and the dogs burned off their energy on a near empty beach and we all ate a great brunch at a local cafe. At 14 months Alice is very much becoming her own person and enjoys ‘playing’ Connect 4 with Theo, meanwhile her brother’s big news this month, is that gap in his front teeth, he had his first visit from the tooth fairy last week!


Looking forward to seeing your posts and don’t forget to share your images on social media too with the hashtag #homelifeproject

I love the capture of your little man watching the iPad with fists full of dinosaurs. I’m looking forward to capturing a full year this year.

I’m so excited to take part this year. I already captured so many lovely natural moments yesterday that I wouldn’t have done otherwise. We woke up to a very dark day too, roll on Spring hey? Love your beach snaps, I do so love a beach hut backdrop! x

Really nice photos especially like your beach shots, nothing better than an empty winter beach! Your brunch looks so good, yum! Really looking forward to joining you this year 🙂

Beautiful photos. I’ve followedited your posts for a while and love how they document family life. I’m joining in this year to pick my DSLR up more. I hope you don’t mind that I don’t share photos of my children’s faces. Love your home too.

Not at all Claire, everyone has different boundaries. Some have husband’s who don’t like to be photographed, others have certain rooms that are off limits. I think it makes you be more creative!

All gorgeous photos clare. Loving all the beach shots, we love an empty beach too. How grown up is Alice now? Rosie got her first wobbly tooth on Christmas Eve, its still in for now but is very wobbly! Love the creative challenge but totally missed it as was chaos in this house. Managed to take photos though x

I’m gutted I’ve only just discovered this project and would love to take part next month. As a newbie, is it ok if I complete the January project even if it means I’ll have to wait to do my first monthly one from next month?

Thanks so much and what a fab creative community you’re creating. I love a good challenge!

Clare, your photos are stunning. I love the indoor and outdoor variety and your home is beautiful too. I am so glad I can join in this year and if nothing more it will be a lovely record of our life – although I aspire to improve my photography too! x

That brunch looks delish.
How cute playing board games together xx

Ah Claire, stunning photos as always. The Connect 4 photo made my heart swell – super cute. 🙂 This is such a lovely project and I can’t wait to see everyone’s photos over the next year.
