“These people have learned not from books, but in the fields, in the wood, on the river bank. Their teachers have been the birds themselves, when they sang to them, the sun when it left a glow of crimson behind it at setting, the very trees, and wild herbs.”

―Anton Chekhov, “A Day in the Country”

Our children learn so much from being part of nature, things they can never learn from a classroom with four walls. I hope seeing these gorgeous photographs like the one’s above by @myprettymama and @itsagingerbreadlife, encourage you to explore the great outdoors this weekend, to notice the beauty outside of your window, to hear the birds, and to feel the breeze.

Here are my favourite photos from Mummy Shot IG community this week. It’s all about exploring nature this week!

Let me introduce you to the photographers of these very cute pics!

It is really all about capturing emotion, or a story without seeing your child’s full face in the photograph.
