Urmston family photographer {doorstep shoot & interview with Dayna, George, Heidi + Theo}

May 17, 2020

This was the very first lovely family I did some lockdown doorstep pics for last week – and what a load of belters I had to start off with!

I thought it might be a nice idea to ask each family a few questions about their own unique experience of lockdown to build up a little collection of our different memories and experiences of this strange old time – hopefully a meaningful little ray of sunshine amongst all this chaos. So I’ll hand you over to the lovely Dayna!

What has lockdown looked like for you?

Slow mornings, messy hair, slouchy pants, eating and drinking copious amounts of tea and cake, binge reading Roald Dahl with the kids, catching up on Netflix series.

Favourite lockdown activities…

Den building, obstacle course making, baking, drawing, planting seeds, re-discovering the local gems e.g. Dutton Pond, old golf course, meadows

 

 

Most memorable moment…

Celebrating Heidi’s 5th birthday – we decorated the house, played party games in the garden, received video messages from friends and sang happy birthday with the whole family via Zoom (she said that it was her best birthday ever!)

Funniest lockdown moment…

Almost cutting George’s ear off whilst watching a YouTube tutorial of how to use clippers.

Most joyful lockdown moment…

Waking up every morning to one of my crazy kids jumping on our bed (as opposed to a hideous alarm clock). Getting a supermarket delivery slot after days of disappointment.

What do you most want to remember about this time right now?

Being able to nurture my kids through this crazy time and thanking my lucky stars that we have been able to remain safe.

Has lockdown changed you?

Lockdown has made me slow down, reflect and value what is precious to me. It’s certainly given me a reality check and made me re-consider my priorities in life.

What are you most looking forward to after lockdown?

Freedom. The ability to go anywhere, when I want and with whoever I want. I can’t wait to visit the coast, go to a gig and enjoy a boozy lunch with my mates.

Thanks so much to Dayna, George, Heidi + Theo for brightening up my own lockdown, I had a blast!
