Clients who become friends x

Earlier this year, a lovely man emailed me to book a family photo session as a gift for his wife. He told me that she was also a photographer and struggled with the same issue that I did: we were rarely in our own family photos! I jumped at the chance to do this session for them because I know how important it is to be present in our photos, to show our kids when they grow up just how much we loved them when they were little. Whatever excuses we might come up with for our absence in photos, the fact remains that our children will want to see us in their childhood photo books when they are older, and these books might even be passed down through the generations. We need to preserve our family story.

After we chatted for the first time, Simone (of Enraptured Photography) became a gorgeous friend and this made it even easier for me to capture her with her family. She and her husband are fabulous parents, and their kids are the sweetest! We did the session a few weeks ago, on a very windy and chilly day, but they rocked the whole thing and I love the emotion that shines through in their photos ...
