    An insight into life with a pair of winged, infant demons who poo everywhere, devour flesh and make bizarre noises. Now I know how my parents must've felt.

  • Week OneThey’re sooooooo cute!

    I've never worked with owls before and I've never been comfortable around babies. Since these are a mixture of the two, I figured week one would be about getting to grips with the basics.

    While I'm happy to report that the children have become surprisingly tall, I'm sorry to say I must keep this entry quite 'short'. Hehehehe... ugh, I'm dead inside.

  • Week fourTime to say goodbye

    After a month of being loved, looked after and shitting all over my home, our children are no longer with us. I feel like how my parents must've when I finally buggered off, too.

    Sassy girl and Will are still barely a few months old, but their appetite and penchant for mid air tantrums could put even my own to shame!

    I try to talk about and photograph our children/great horned owls with the same annoying level of frequency as those who parent human offspring.

    Will and Sassy turn one year old this week. They've come a long way since flying across my living room and spraying us with napalm shit along the way. Shitpalm, if you will.
