I design adverts for a living, so when I take a photo of Jack that I think would lend itself well to an advertisement, I feel strangely compelled to add a logo or the likes. Obviously this is not a real advert for Aigle. Jack and I are their new biggest fans though. I mean, look at those gorgeous wee welly boots... I could just write a poem about them. They are
my favourite Jack's favourite footwear ever! The wellies were not really what I had intended to capture this morning. I decided I wanted to photograph him gardening with his new watering can. My Nan was the person who ignited his interest by filling her little green watering can and showing him how to give the plants a drink. He was so into it I knew I had to buy him a can of his very own. I took my sky blue backdrop outside today as watering inside would have created a right mess. Isn't he a helpful boy?

Here's my wee man in his first pair of welly boots. I'm a Hunters girl myself, but Jack makes these Aigle's look so good I wouldn't mind a set! I think he's my fashion icon. He rocked his Converse High Tops so much I went out and got myself a pair. Now we match. I guess the right model can sell anything!
He's touching his nose, as instructed to do so by Mr Tumble. Any other 'Something Special' fans will know all about it. Behold- the magic spotty bag!

Here's a sneaky peek of a sweet little American Apparel tee I picked up for next to nothing on eBay. It has given me inspiration for a Father's Day card featuring my wee tot. If I was a more patient person I would have waited 'til next month to show you, but I'm not, so I snapped him wearing it today. Come Father's Day, I'll put my plan into action. Fingers crossed Jack plays ball.

It might seem odd to intentionally create so much 'negative space', but I'm so into this at the moment! Granted, it definitely works better in my design work when I add text to fill in the blank space, but today I thought I would try it for Jack's portrait. I also rolled out my black and white backdrops together to create the two tone effect.
Jack is sporting his brand new sunglasses from Marks and Spencers. Isn't he a cool dude? He picked them out himself. He's also wearing an American Apparel cardi, Zara skinny rocker jeans and a vintage tee.
Jack was featured in the May edition of the American Apparel email newsletter wearing this cardigan. You can see it here: http://tiny.cc/0h92ew

Weeeeeee! Jack has been having super-duper fun on his new (old) Raleigh trike! My grandparents had this little beaut hidden away in their attic, and this lucky boy has claimed it. I don't know how old it is, but I have found the exact same trike here, and it seems to be displayed in a museum! There are beautiful illustrations of frogs on the seat and the recognisable Raleigh logo on the front. We're so chuffed with it. Having said this, it is causing a few problems. Jack can't yet pedal it himself, so he gets frustrated if we stop pushing. My Nan came up with the temporary solution of attaching some string and pulling him around yesterday. I've added a little photo below.
