Mothers Day  Exclusive Special

Mothers Day Exclusive Special

24/03/19

Springtime, 

 

The warmth we have been waiting for on our skin we have been so longing for is here again, the joy of new buds everywhere, the sound of birds is once again in the air, everything is waking up from it's Winter slumber.  Time to plant bulbs, watch new life appear and feel the change in the air. Mother Nature has breathed freshness all around us.

 

The signs of new life are prominent, Nest building , my favourite yellow flowers - yellow trumpets (daffodils) popping up all around me filling the Spring Light with the most delicious yellows and oranges. The merrily Bizzy buzzy bees are back again, how joyous to once again hear that sound surrounding me on a nature walk. 

 

Little lambs frolic around and play and little bunnies hop about in the fields excited to be moving again. Frogs are croaking in the ponds and laying eggs like spotty jelly.

Only a year since Spring was here but feels like a lifetime, it's like I'm using all of my senses anew again.

Pink and white blossoms open up delicately. So intricate and yet bold. 

Showers and Rainbows fill the sky with colour, light and love giving us Hope. Filling our hearts with love.

When I think of Mother's I think Spring, Growth, love, opening oneself to rebirth and change and never to be the same again, yet part of a natural cycle of Earth.

 As this fresh new start to Spring I feeling awake, refreshed and excited. Although we spend time outside all year around I am excited to be outdoors with less layers and feel the sun on my skin.

 I believe it's important to document our lives as we can see where we have come from, the troubles we have faced as well as the good times. I believe it's important to document throughout all stages of life in what we label good or bad as too, it helps gives us perspective on our lives and the cycles throughout our lives. The ways I find myself documenting the most are Photography, films and Journals.

 I also have my own family documented by an artist once a year. I believe it's important to be documented by someone else, you can't really be in your own photographs and they be honest and authentic and I can actually be in them and not be taking them. Sometimes we have photographs, films or both made by artists.

Here's a behind the scenes video:

Day in the life. Behind the scenes with the Challenors. from jade langton evans on Vimeo.

 

Having your family documented by me couldn't be easier, it's all about being yourself, living life as you normally would and I hang out with you and document it, I show you all the little things I notice that I believe are the most important things you will need to see and then I create those memories into the form of photographs and films for you to keep forever and give to your children. 

What is a great to document in the time we are together to tell your story?

A meal - the preparations, the setting, the communication

Play - hanging out around the house whether it's playing an imaginary game or a board game or dress up! 

A wander - a walk to the park or walking the dog - what do you like to do together?

Purposeful work - something that needs doing around the house, brushing, washing etc

Snuggling up with stories

It's all about YOU and how you spend quality time with your family. All the little things matter. They come together to create such a beautiful story through photographs.

 

I think that sometimes as Mums we kind of get a bit lost inbetween all the different mum stuff that we do, from cleaning, cooking, taking care of the kids, working, car trips, sorting out washing and bags and snack boxes etc etc We can often feel that we are serving up everyone but "us" There's always stuff to obviously. It doesn't just end one day until then it does... and our time with our kids is gone.

In amongst all the "stuff" that goes on in everyday life, there are so many wonderful crackers . Moments in between moments in between moments.

 There are all kinds of stuff, it's not really much but it's also EVERYTHING.

So what do I really mean by that?

Well the minutes flow into hours, the hours flow into days, the days flow into weeks, and the weeks flow into months and before we know it another year has gone by and we have barely noticed it's passing.

Within the moments inbetween moments, inbetween moments unless you are paying attention you won't notice the beautiful little crackers happening in every moment.

They are ALWAYS there

Home is where a lot of the most important things happen

Home is where the heart is

Children find out where they belong in their families. They find out what they are apart of.

LIFE IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW IN FRONT OF YOUR VERY EYES

Every day of your life MATTERS

Every moment counts

inbetween sogginess, messiness, fed up ness, dirtiness, never ending washing, never ending pots, never ending snacks, never ending tiredness, 

 IS WHERE REAL, HONEST, BEAUTIFUL LIFE IS

All the best bits of life, they ARE NOW in the PRESENT

Willing you to notice them, willing you not to live in the past or in the future BUT TO LIVE NOW.

So everyday when you think ahh I didn't get to do my hair again but maybe you got to have a shower (yay!)...but you took time instead to notice your child and play with them, that matters.

When you are doing each task on it's own: nappy changes, baths, dinner time, cleaning up, it might seem like you are not really doing much, or really even achieving anything but then suddenly when you see your story come together and see how wonderful all those little things are when they are all collected beautifully together by someone who notices you, who notices those beautiful passing moments and how delicate they are, how easily missed they are, but I can see them.

You see your memories stitched and bound together lovingly.

You finally KNOW, there you are in the thick of it all, living a real, honest, beautiful life, and right then YOU WOULD NEVER CHANGE ANY OF IT.

Because you realise all along how perfect it's always really been amongst sogginess, messiness, fed up ness, dirtiness, never ending washing, never ending pots, never ending snacks, never ending tiredness.

Because all of that was the most beautiful. It always was.

That is love

That is home

That is family

That is EVERYTHING

 

The Seager Family I think it's important to see a film and a photographs gallery from a family so you can really see the results and also how they both fit together, what is captured on film and what is captured as still moments. Below is the film and the second video is the photo gallery.

 

 

 

3 Benefits to having me over at your home for a Documentary family Experience - written by my gorgeous clients

 

Sue 

Having someone who get's to know you better than you know yourself!?

It's the human intuition bit that sets you apart from people. Because you are so genuinely interested in other people, we relax because we can, because it feels like being with a friend.

You also give off an aura of making me feel safe - like whatever happens is OK I know you would never put anything on film that would make me feel uncomfortable.

You take time to observe the interaction between us, not the flagship sensational moments, and next time you come here, please remind of of that again!! It's the little moments that make a family and that's what you seek. You are brilliant!

 

 Bethan

 I guess you showed us the beauty in our everyday lives when you did the first film for us 2 years ago. Since then I definately feel like we have definately grown as people and as a family.

 I loved that we chatted about appreciating the same things in family life.

We discussed the challenges we are facing as the next generation - from the way we were parented to the way we are parenting. All without judgement and a mutual understanding.

So we get as a super lovely set of photographs every year, a film that documents life as it is and a meaningful chat that is open, honest and without judgement.

 

 

 Rosie

I feel like Jade's work is unique really, becauser it's totally non - judgemental when she documents. She does this with so much compassion that you can't help be touched by the photographs and films that she creates.

It was emotional because it's not very often that you get to see your life described through the art of somebody else. It was amazing.

 There's so much trend in having perfect looking images, they are beautiful, but they are too perfect in fact. We are not perfect, the things that make our family amazing are our unique qualities and imperfections.

 As a parent I spend a lot of time worrying about how I could be better or thinking what I should or shouldn't have done for my children and I wanted that encorporated into the final results in that it wasn't always going to be airbrushed and polished and perfect.
