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!

Home Life Project – July 2018

The Home Life Project is a personal photography project I started shortly after my youngest child was born to put aside a day a month to record the everyday moments of family life through the seasons. All too often the weeks rush by and we find that without a specific event to act as a trigger we forget to photograph our every day.

Now in its third year I still find great value in having a date in the diary to make the effort to use my big camera to photograph family moments. Others join along too some intermittently, some more frequently, but if you ever wish to get your camera out and share the results you are more than welcome…

July is of course a joy to photograph and this summer has been particularly kind to us. It was 31c yesterday and after a morning at home we were lucky enough to spend some time in my parents pool cooling off with two crazy water babies whose swimming skills have really come into their own during this warm weather.

As my mum often says it was “a day for the freezer”.

selling stock images

After many hours of uploading new images to my Getty library earlier this year, I thought I’d do another post on the images I’ve licensed recently and I’m starting off with this one, my bestseller, which was spotted last month by a friend of mine being used by CBeebies on their Facebook page. This photo is about five years old and I think if I’d known it would be a bestseller I’d have spent a bit more time cleaning up the background which is a rather off white…
