Day 2 {Brisbane Children’s Photographer}

This photo a day challenge, is where I embark on the epic, personal journey to take one photograph every day for the month of January, of the things that are important to me.

We hit the road last week for a trip down to Sydney, only a mere 12 hours away. Of course I had palpations and night sweats at the thought of packing up in the car with three kids, including one toddler and driving such a long way. But you know what? They were as perfect as perfect could be. Willow sat happily in her car seat just looking out the window, dosing off to sleep or asking, “what your doing mumma?“. ┬áLily and Byron watched their DVDs, ate lollies and well, just sat there. There was no fighting and no arguing, which was most probably due in part to Byron having his ‘own space’ in the third row (I’ve never been more grateful to own a 7 seater car as I was driving those long legs). They were truly the most perfect little angels and because of this I have come to the realisation that I LOVE road trips. Yep. I want to go on more of them – drive and drive and drive. There is something uniquely fun about it even if you’ve travelled the journey before.

Naturally, the trip away is always more excitable than the coming home journey, but there is no denying there is nothing more exciting than stepping foot back on your own turf.
