The story of daycare pick-up {Melbourne | Family Photography}

Ever see a photographer who starts out with a 365 day project, or even a 52 week project and never finishes? Yeah, me too. Well, I recently joined a group of a few other busy photographers who decided to commit to a 12 month project! If we fail this, we’ll be taking donations for a time management seminar. The best part is that it will be totally candid, lifestyle shots of each of our own families/lives. We don’t even have to dredge up random people or make our kids pose for us. We’re calling the series “The Story of ________” and we’ll each be filling in our own blanks. At the end of this post is a link to another photographer who participated and she’ll be linking to someone else. It’s a whole big circle of stories in pictures. Click through and enjoy!   Now for my very quick story – My eldest daughter, Mia, is in daycare 3 days a week and on those days, right before pick-up my baby Zoe and I have a little routine where we get ready, she goes in the pram and she knows exactly where she’s going. She gets so excited to go pick her big sister up. Mia is always so happy to see us and adores her baby sister – she doesn’t let any of the other kids near her. It’s too cute. I hope the pictures aren’t too small for you to follow my story, but I wanted to include as many as I could to tell the story without clogging up precious bandwidth. Enjoy – and don’t forget to check out Beth’s story in the link at the end of the post.

Getting ready to go pick her big sister up, Zoe is excited and geared up for the walk. Below you can also see the path we take and the park that we stop at after pick-up

Mia is so happy to see us and comes running over – she was so fast I barely had a chance to keep up the focus!


Play time at the park and making new friends.
