Belle has been blessed with thick, luscious, fast growing locks, and for the last while has been growing them with the thought of selling her hair.
That is until she found out about the 'Beautiful Lengths' charity, where people can donate their hair (as long as it's in good condition and over 20cm long) which is then made into wigs that are then given to cancer sufferers who have lost their own hair, and just want to feel a bit more like their old selves again.
I regularly cut Evan's hair, quite well I think, but cutting girls' hair straight is a whole other ball game.
India's fringe was scary enough!
We got it in the bag! (boom tish)
To post tomorrow.
At the time of writing, there were 6054 ponytails collected, and their goal is for 10000. Of course it's not something everyone can do, but it's a worthy cause if you can contribute.
She told me the mums who attended the playgroup had trouble remembering the other mum's names, and Lena had requested they bring in photos of themselves with their kids, to put on a board, for a bit of name recognition.
The mums had lots of photos of their kids, but so few of themselves. It seemed they were always looking through the lens rather than at it.
I know the feeling. Of course I have thousands of photos of my kids, but the rare picture of me is usually with a camera in front of my face!
So my task was to photograph the mums and their families during a playgroup session.
The sittings were super quick, but it was lots of fun, and a different way for me to shoot portraits, which is great because I love variety.
Thanks so much to all the mums for having me there, and huge thanks to Lena for her clever organisation!
