May is pretty, May is mild,
Dances like a happy child;
Sing out robin; spring out flowers;
April went with all her showers,
And the world is green again;
Come out, children, to the glen,
To the meadows, to the wood,
For the earth is clean and good,
And the sky is clear and blue,
And bright May is calling you!

How was your May?
We visited Hartlepool at the beginning of May. Harvey wanted to visit where Grandma was from. What better time to remember her but on her birthday. It was also nice to see another local artist supporting RNLI.
Just a little reminder we support many charities in a variety of ways:
Quieting the Noise
It was mental health awareness week in May and as a mental health advocate I had some tips and mental health reminders:
Repeat after me …
“Even though my kids come first, it does not mean I come last”
As I walked home last night,
I saw a lone fox dancing
In the bright moonlight.
I stood and watched,
Then took the low road, knowing
The night was his by right.
Sometimes, when words ring true,
I’m like a lone fox dancing
In the morning dew.
At LAL Photography
As your family grows it can be difficult to get everyone together at the same time, more reason to photograph that time together.
I’ll be honest, parenting is nothing like what I expected. I thought I was here to teach my kids all that’s important in life. Turns out, they’re the ones teaching me.

Why Is Photography Important?
I’ve read that children feel safe, welcome, seen and loved if there are images of themselves in the family home. I love this idea and think this is something every family needs to know.
You see stories, memories and keepsakes are important. Life is short. Our humanity is what makes us beautiful. The light will never look or be seen the same again and neither will we.
We will never have this moment again. So, let’s capture it!
