As you know I'm a bit obsessed when it comes to capturing the everyday moments with F and this small family of mine. It's rare for me to be without a camera in hand, snapping away, for these are the days that F will look back with – hopefully – a warm heart and the stories he will share as a grown man. I want to make sure I can preserve as many of these precious moments as possible.

Family: I love this photo, this is the boy who came along and made me a mama and us a family. No longer the two of us bumbling along, this little guy has given us focus and drive. He is the centre of my world and my family.

Friendship: I love watching the bonds he makes and the friendships he grows; hearing their conversations and seeing how they navigate life at such an early age is a beautiful thing to witness.

Travel: Oh how I long for sunlit beaches and warm seas to dip my toes in. Long days of nothingness and laughter.

Celebration: That time we went to The Ethicurean to celebrate my birthday and the food was oh so good. I love eating out and trying new places. Delicious.

It's so easy for me to click away, filling up memory cards and my iPhone crammed with photos, but I want to make sure I can preserve as many of these precious moments as possible, and leaving these images to sit on my computer is not quite the way forward. There's something so wonderful about having your moments printed out and bound. I remember as a child pouring through our family photo albums and I certainly have a lot of Photography art books at home.

So when Photoworld launched their #weprintmemories competition, I couldn't wait to share my favourite moments.

  1. I love that hashtag, memories are even more important to mothers than I ever knew before I had kids.

  2. great idea! Love looking back on photos and enjoying all the memories that they hold x

  3. Your photos are so beautiful, I'm sure F will love looking back on them x

  4. I'm terrible at taking hundreds of photos but never getting them printed out. I keep meaning to do it for Eliza but haven't got round to it yet! Great competition and love the photos you've picked x

  5. Sometimes I find it really overwhelming to think about how many photos I've taken and not done anything with! Need to make some things when I have some time x

  6. All the previous generations of my family had albums they passed around at get-togethers. I know you can get the laptop out but it's not the same so I really want to make some for this reason. Gorgeous, gorgeous photos of yours!

  7. I've been awful with photos - Ben has three albums, Daisy has none. I keep meaning to print some out, but real life and work keeps getting in the way! Beautiful pictures as usual, really lovely x

  8. Love that first shot, I feel the same and hope Wilf will enjoy them all as he's older (and not think I'm a total weirdo for plastering them on the internet!) x

  9. such lovely photos! i'd love to go to the ethicurean one day.

  10. Ooh, will have to enter this. We went to the ethicurean a couple of months ago. I love it. The garden was great for taking T on a wander while waiting for our food.
