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


nixon: i was about to dress you when i realised that i really needed to enjoy your baby chub more often. so we turned the heat pump on and you had a lovely play in your nappy and i went a bit snap-happy.  you are such a very scrummy baby!


ethan: june was a lucky month for me, i won two tickets to the all blacks v england at eden park so opted to let you and your dad have a boys night out.  you guys had some fast food for dinner and rode the train to town where you had a blast watching the first nail-biting test.  it was a timely treat as you received player of the day again at your own rugby game!  you are so handsome and growing so fast at the moment, that’s my kathmandu jacket you’re fitting rather nicely!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
