I was suprised to discover that I had something in common with Hillary Clinton - but here it is! Too Small To Fail is an American initiative hot off the press - she makes a strong case that our future success as a people depends upon nurturing our children especially in those first few years of life. Its features Dr Shonkoff from Harvard- my alltime hero:) Using research on child brain development he makes the point that warm and responsive parenting is vital to raise a healthy, robust child. Finally, a campaign that places merit on the many unseen acts of kindness it takes to be a parent. Bring it on!

Today we discovered another 3-kid Perth family that share something in common with us - they're in love with families! We caught up withTristan and Monica of ButterBomb who do some amazing family photography.These guys really appreciate the specialness of relationship between family members and somehow manage to capture it in a image - an image that can be kept and revisited, telling a story, a shared experience, a reminder for a lifetime.
We think their photos are wonderfully natural and capture the essence of the joy and delight in being family.
We've tried to do this over the years with our family, and treasure some of the moments that have been snapped at various stages, at particular places or milestone events. It is rare to catch our whole family (and the dog) in natural interaction though - especially with the camera on timer and balancing on a chair!
Tristan - I think we need your help!
