Home Life Project – December

Here it is, after 3 years this will be the last (formal) Home Life Project post. It’s provided a wonderful motivation to capture our family life in images and I always found the value of the photos grew as time passed. I tended to be hyper-critical in the days after they were taken and then looked back at them fondly once those days became months.

Next year I’ll be taking on to new challenges and although I’ll be keeping this blog live I anticipate the posting may become a bit sporadic. Home Life Project grew out of an occasional series I did in 2015 called “Scenes From Our Saturday/Sunday’ so it’ll probably revert back to that, an occasional peep into our lives when time and motivation aligns!

Until then here’s a few photos from a very damp, dark and frankly rather uninspiring weekend…Is it too soon to say I can’t wait for spring?!

Photos I’ve sold recently

It’s been about six months since my last update on images I’ve sold and I’m pleased to say that for most of those months, the work I put in earlier in the year uploading new photos to Getty image library has paid dividends.

We’ll start with a photo which sold after it was spotted on Instagram (and isn’t currently listed on Getty) It sold to a realtor website in the States.

And here it is in use…

Home Life Project – November

Home Life Project – November

by Clare Mansell

It’s not you, the October Home Life Project post never made it on to the blog…. Life has been delightfully busy and we’re building up for some changes in the new year which have switched my focus elsewhere. I took the photos (late) but the impetus wasn’t there to share them, so I didn’t… Because that’s how I roll.

After nearly 13 years of blogging (!!) I’m quite happy to be at a place where I share on my own timetable, not dictated by stats, expectations or what the blogging rule book says…

So here’s a little window into our lives this weekend in what may well turn out to be the penultimate Home Life Project… I’m keeping all my options (and certainly this URL) open, but that’s probably where it will go.

Homelife Project – September

Last Sunday was Theo’s seventh birthday party. We squeezed it in two days before the start of the school term and on one of the last glorious days of the summer. Because we arrived home from holiday the night before we kept it simple, no goodie bags, no elaborately shaped cake and only simple party games…and you know what, it was just perfect… and several of the parents stayed for the duration just to hang out in the garden and drink tea with us too.

Thanks to having a few family members on hand to assist, I even managed to grab a few photos, though not all of them I’m sharing here…particularly to save the blushes of the brave mums who volunteered to be wrapped up in loo roll!

After clearing up, we finished the day walking round the fields before bed – Oh what a summer it has been!

Homelife Project – August 2018

Homelife Project – August 2018

by Clare Mansell

I can’t remember ever shooting two months in a row with such incredible weather. I quite thought that last month’s Homelife Project was going to be our token swimming pool moment, but no, we have been spoiled with a second month of sunshine, shorts and swimming!

Jim was away for this one, so I had to work a bit harder to squeeze myself into the photos to stop it being too child-heavy… Probably not a bad thing though!

What on earth will the weather on the first weekend of September be like? I hope it stays good because we’ll be documenting Theo’s seventh birthday party!
