8/52 (Impromptu Art Deco)

Each year Napier holds an Art Deco weekend, it’s a pretty huge event. Last time we went (a couple of years ago), I wrote this blog post about it.

Although I love the idea of dressing up, get involved in the events etc, the reality of the busy crowds, packed carparks and sweltering heat is not always the most ideal with young kids (besides it’s not really my husband’s cup of tea), so we weren’t really planning on going this year. However, on Saturday I managed to twist Andrew’s arm and we headed along, but decided to go to a playground slightly out of the way of all the main events and huge crowds. I quickly dressed the kids (and myself) in some impromptu ‘art deco-ish’ outfits. Of course, being the one behind the lense I forgot to take photos of myself… but managed to snap a couple of the kids…

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014."

Isabelle: Those curls, those eyes, the way the light is hitting her face – gorgeous!

Noah: “Mum, take a photo of me” … (2 seconds later … “Mum, stop taking photos of me!”)

Pipi: Loving having her big brother pushing her on the swings
