Book club: The Fantastic Mr Wani

I still have a long list of the book we love, but then while browsing the library shelves we came accross this one: The Fantastic Mr Wani by Kanako Usui.

This book is just so different. Of course the illustrations are very bold, strong and simple, just what younger children love and definitely you can see some japanese influence there. I love everything about this book, even the paper! This is not the book to teach your child some great principles, it's just a funny book about a crocodile who is trying to be on time and keeps getting in a trouble.
I'm just so super excited about this book - I'm always amazed we find something different in our library. We have a lot of "old" favourites we keep taking out, and it's great to have a new favourite, expecially so refreshingly different!

Pre-Christmas availability.

I know, I know, it's not even Halloween yet! However, if you are thinking about a very meaningful gift for somebody you love and care about - here is an idea. Why not to book a family photosession and then gift your loved ones with beautiful canvases or framed images? A gift for your spouse with a family/children photographs or for your parents with the photographs of your children.
And taking into the consideration the time to edit and to create the finished products, there isn't that many weekends left! I have a very limited weekday availability and that's all that's the only Saturdays left:
20th of October (morning)
3rd of November
17th of November
Contact me on if you would like to book your family session to used the images for your Christmas gifts!

As I have promised, I wanted to share a few more of my favourites from a family session from last month - - a fun session we had at Blaise Castle...
I find that for some reason I am book by families with girls a lot more often than boys and maybe it has something to do with me being a mum of two girls, but I do love photographing boys! And here is the proof :) 


I had to restrain myself from possting the entire gallery here :) But this should give you an idea...Had such a great time at this session...
