moments that matter august | child photography shanghai

After a long pause (due mainly to moving house, and then traveling pretty much all summer), I’m happy to finally join in the blog circle ‚Moments that matter‘ again this month.

While in Germany a few weeks back, I did a belated ‚birthday shoot‘ with Maxi. She loves to wear her gum boots and splash around in water, so we went down to the river for some „fishing“. There was only a stone attached to the string, but Maxi totally expected to catch some fish and was a bit disappointed when she had no such luck. Ever since watching the movie ‚Ballerina‘ on the flight over to Europe, Maxi is obsessed with ballet and insisted on also bringing what she calls her ‚ballerina dress‘ along to the river – so of course we had to do a few shots with the dress too!

Make sure you follow the circle to see some amazing photography – next up is the talented Rachel of MilkyArt.
