Hello and welcome to our little patch of the internet!
I’m Siobhàn, the Eventual Mother of Harrison (3) and Seb (1), following a long road of infertility and recurrent miscarriage. With my husband, Steve, we live in County Durham, England, and spend our days in a haze of cloth nappies, baby wearing, tandem breastfeeding, montessori learning, and, let’s be honest, sleep deprivation.
We’re photographers at Capture the Rainbow Photography, as well as having ‘proper jobs’ outside of the house (…until our lottery numbers come in, please and thank you), which all funds our, pretty serious, addiction to eco-friendly products and wooden toys (fair warning- you’ll be reading about Babi Pur, our favourite shop, A LOT)
We both waffle about anything and everything that interests us. Perpetual researchers by nature, we tend to like to know all the gritty details, and share them.
We’ve recently gone vegan so, if you stick around, you should brace yourself for a flurry of plant-based recipes and about 20 photos from different angles of the same meals (behind the scenes of these photos you will find me clambering on top of a bench and contorting to get THE photo, and Steve moaning that dinner will be freezing by the time I’m finished, whilst Harrison and Seb try to pinch the food).
After being in a wheelchair during both Harrison and Seb’s pregnancies (SPD is a rotten thing), I am making the most of my rediscovered mobility and am an avid runner. In fact, I’ll be running the GREAT NORTH RUN half marathon this year for Kicks Count, an incredible UK based charity who work to reduce the number of preventable still births. If you feel like being generous, I would greatly receive any donations here.
So that’s us in a nutshell. We’re a happy bunch, and love every single, slightly bonkers, stage of this parenting game, and look forward to sharing it with you.
Siobhàn, Steve, Harrison and Seb.
