Curious Little Explorers

I love that every photo attached to the hashtag shows a story of childhood fun. From finding butterflies, to feeding animals, to peeping through windows, to curiously exploring wood. They really, really show off what our hashtag is about. Your little ones off exploring all different environments and enjoying it in their own way.

My favourite photo from my own feed this week is this photo of Evie playing on the beach. She is growing up so fast and I’m trying to capture every moment. I adored this day, it was so warm and we had such a fun afternoon collecting stones and enjoying our picnic.

My favourite photo from Alice’s feed this week is this one of Amelia running through the bluebells. I love everything about it, the colours, the bluebells (they’re my favourite flower) and Amelia’s adorable little outfit.

Our first featured image is by the lovely: @mehubbyandcharliet. How incredible is this capture? It’s so beautiful. The colours of the butterfly are so vibrant and Charlie looks so happy to be up close to it.

Our second featured image is by: @girlswithfilm. I love this picture of the siblings all peeping in through the window together. Girls With Film is a great little instagram account that showcases a very talented photographers work. Go and check it out!
