Watering Can


I design adverts for a living, so when I take a photo of Jack that I think would lend itself well to an advertisement, I feel strangely compelled to add a logo or the likes. Obviously this is not a real advert for Aigle. Jack and I are their new biggest fans though. I mean, look at those gorgeous wee welly boots... I could just write a poem about them. They are my favourite Jack's favourite footwear ever!  The wellies were not really what I had intended to capture this morning. I decided I wanted to photograph him gardening with his new watering can. My Nan was the person who ignited his interest by filling her little green watering can and showing him how to give the plants a drink. He was so into it I knew I had to buy him a can of his very own. I took my sky blue backdrop outside today as watering inside would have created a right mess. Isn't he a helpful boy?

Me and my Shadow


Hey everyone - check out my big massive studio! Nah... I wish! As usual, I photographed Jack in my modest sized front room, against my 1.35m black and grey backdrops. The rest of the space is photoshopped in, including the shadow. I've went a bit mad with negative space recently. I just love it. And I love shadows. Don't worry, my obsessive nature will take my interest onto some other technique by next week.   Jack is wearing his blue Zara cords, blue converse and a knitted vintage train jumper. The poor darling has an awful tummy bug at the moment. He's barfing round the clock, so we have to keep a close eye on him to make sure he doesn't get dehydrated. Hopefully we'll turn a corner soon. Even when he's not feeling great, he still has a smile for big Mama! What a wee pet.

Give it some welly


Here's my wee man in his first pair of welly boots. I'm a Hunters girl myself, but Jack makes these Aigle's look so good I wouldn't mind a set! I think he's my fashion icon. He rocked his Converse High Tops so much I went out and got myself a pair. Now we match. I guess the right model can sell anything!

He's touching his nose, as instructed to do so by Mr Tumble. Any other 'Something Special' fans will know all about it. Behold- the magic spotty bag!
