Photography for Mums: Best of the Web 29-07-16

movie night with kids

Happy Friday!!

I survived (just) the car trip I mentioned last week. Woohoo! We all had a fabulous time meeting Jen at Mum in the Madhouse (and popping in on cousin Sarah afterwards), and the photos turned out brilliantly. Can’t wait to share those with you next week!

I’ve also been slowly chipping away at the pictures from the triplets’ birthday party, and am so glad to finally get those up on the blog for you to see! Hope you like them 😀

How has your first week of the summer holidays been? Any exciting trips or fun photo sessions? I’d love to hear all about what you’ve been up to in the comments section below.

Here are my latest fave finds from around the web. As always, you can click through to read the original post and see all the photos!

How to Be a Role Model for Girls

As a mum to two daughters, this post was fascinating. I’ll be rereading this again as the girls get older, so I can make sure I give them confidence in their girlhood and beyond. Running my own business is one way I can help my girls see that women can take their skills and talents and go for it.

The photos on this post are from Getty Images for their Lean In collection, and they portray beautiful, confident women and girls. I love it!

An Amazing Woman in Leadership

Speaking of confident, amazing women, a post on Inhabitots, parts of the Inhabitat network went right along with this topic. They asked that I not link directly to the post, so here is a link to the HuffPo post that inspired the one I first read.

Theresa Kachindamoto, a senior chief in Malawi, is taking a stand against child marriages. She’s broken up more than 850 of them during her three year reign, sending the kids back to school. We definitely need more women like this in the world! What a woman – strong, powerful, respected and not afraid to stand up to what is right. Totally inspiring!

Make Movie Night a Blast

The lovely Jen over at Mum in the Madhouse wrote this post on making your next movie night more memorable. I thought the tips were brilliant, especially getting outside to play a game based on the movie. A fun way to mix active play into movie night! My lot don’t quite have the attention span to sit down for a movie yet, but I can’t wait to make it a weekly end of week tradition as soon as they can!

If you’re looking for ideas for your next movie night, definitely check out her post!

Are Toys Cluttering Up Your House?

With four young children, I’m definitely feeling the toy clutter (and every other variation). This post shared genius solutions to keeping the toys picked up.

Giving everything a home should help the kids get better at putting their playthings away. It is my dream to have an organised clean house – maybe when they are 18?! Ha!
