My Muddy Princess

I've finally found the time to share Charlotte's muddy puddle shoot :)

She had SO.MUCH.FUN doing this and thought I was the coolest Mum ever, lol. Who wouldn't want to jump in a muddy puddle wearing gumboots and their best party dress?

 *Massive photo dump ahead*

Getting ready to head in..

Stepping into the puddle..


A small test jump...
Then she got down to business!


I thought this was a bit of a crazy face hehe








ShutterLoveTuesdays



I love this shot of my princess :)
Sweet Shot Tuesday and Happy Monday 'Something You Love' (I love my pretty girl :) )

Sweet Shot Day 

A BIG splash!

She was getting some height!

Perceptive Perspective 'Outdoors' Challenge

Photobucket

As you can imagine her boots kept filling up with a LOT of muddy water, lol
I took these at about 3:30pm and caught some beautiful light, I still need a lot of practice at how best to use it though!





Simplicity's 'Messy' Challenge
Her dress was very messy by then end of our little session!


Having a sit down, lol




Squeezing out the muddy juice haha!

I put her dress straight in the wash when we got home and it came out spotless :D Phew!





 

I encourage all the mammas to let their kids jump in a muddy puddle, great fun and great photos!

Oh my goodness! You get the mom award of the year. The shots are fabulous.

I would love to wear the dress.

I would love to wear the boots.

I would love to wade into the puddle.

But you could NOT PAY ME ENOUGH to make me "love" getting all muddy like that.
