the seaside.

Earlier this month we went to London. It started off with photographing a wedding which morphed into a holiday, and then it went.... wrong
So one morning when we got up and we wanted to go home and the options were either to pack or to not pack and I was supposed to be working and Nye hadn't slept for a week I said 'fuck it, let's go to the seaside. If we still want to go home when we get back, then we'll pack.' And so that's what we did.
It helped.  We stayed. For a little longer at least. 
We're going away again today, for a wedding and to visit my family. When we get back we're home for three weeks and then we're going to France. People ask whether you can still travel with babies and it would seem that yes, yes you can. Whether you should is a different matter altogether.

  12. Yes... holidays, travel...indeed life is all different with children - yet can we actually remember a time before they existed? I see such purpose in the eyes of your bubs... these experiences are already leaving impressions of the universe upon them. How wonderful that their journey is so full so early....

  15. I can't remotely choose a favorite image. You and Nye are preternaturally good-looking, it seems. And your babies, as one might expect, beautiful. But I suppose I mostly am moved by the signs of personhood your little ones are showing. The chubby legs of someone who understands she's not getting out of her stroller any time soon, that sitting is different from not sitting. The eye-rubbing, the eyes-closed smile, the looks of, "You're kidding, right?"

    So I own up to the demanding bit, but at least I really appreciate what you show us:).

    Thank you.

  18. i love E&A!! i just found out that our twins will be girls too, do you have any tips for traveling with two twin bubs? i refuse to be locked up in the house with them, or to only confine my traveling to car trips. i'd love to take them downtown on the public transport, etc. etc.

  31. Are you for real? This looks like a moment stolen from from a movie... this perfect, soft, envolving movie that you wanna cuddle in the couch with your loved one on a sunday rainny afternoon to see it. In fact, I think I'm gonna grab some popcorns!

    Oh, never can get over babies with stripes. It's sweet sweet sweet!
