Family portraits with Viva Photography

We live in an age where we take photos constantly. How simple is it to just pop out our phones from our pockets and snap away? Anyone can do it but yet with the hundreds if not thousands of photos I take of my kids, I still struggle to find something nice enough to enlarge, frame and hang on the wall.

The truth behind my Instagram photos of my girls (shooting my house is 100x easier and less likely to end up with me screaming) is that I have to take dozens of shots to just get the one picture I will end up posting – and most of the time I’m unable to get a decent shot of all 3 of them.

So I jumped at the chance to review the products and service from Viva Photography…and finally be able to get a nice photograph to frame and even gift to my mother and mother-in-law #winning.

Summer Fun with Clark Rubber

What are your memories of summer school holidays? For me, it was sipping on fruit flavoured icy poles, watching the Australian Open tennis on TV (with the air conditioning cranked up) and having lots of fun with water. Back when I was a kid (this was pre-iPads and pre-iPhones) most of the time I just enjoyed being outside with my imagination and the simplest of toys during the summer holidays.

So it was exciting for my girls when they received the Double Superslide and the Giant Hippo Ride On from Clark Rubber. Slightly reminiscent of the toys I had when I was younger but now bigger and better! We knew we would have loads of fun with these toys during the summer school holidays and also be kept cool at the same time.
