Since becoming a mum, I’ve taken hundreds (possibly thousands) of photos. Early days, baby firsts, special days, family, friends, funny moments, milestones. They are a lasting reminder of both our daughters time in this world. Looking through them the other evening, I began to realise something missing from the pictures I’ve taken and the memories I’ve captured. 

The pictures represent my memory of events, because I was the one behind the camera. In years to come, the girls could be forgiven for thinking I wasn’t there at any of their achievements or celebrations! There are so few photos of me as a mum, so my mission from now on is to get in front of the camera with my girls more often….

Our first baby, Ella Mary, was born at the end of November 2010. We were shocked to find out soon after her birth that she has Down's Syndrome. I was determined from the start that Down's Syndrome will never define Ella or what she is able to do. We will provide for her everything she needs to become the child and the person she deserves to be. There will be hard times ahead.... there are already many hard times behind us. But I already know that the good times will always outweigh the hard times. She has taught me so much in such a short time and seeing life from a new perspective is a privilege that not many of us get the chance to experience.
