I love photographing families.
Submerging myself into their family life. Quickly spotting the connections that can be captured and recognising the moments that are worth remembering.
Taking photos that families didn’t know they needed. The in-between moments.
The sibling love or the fighting. The way their feet dangle from the chair. The cheesy grin. The favourite story book, treasured toy or cuddly friend. The way they run. The way they sit on your hip or on your shoulders. The curls. The cuddles. The smiles. The way they laugh together or cry. The non-stop, can’t sit down, always on-the-go stage. The blue eyes. The jumping. The flower picking.
The joys of family life.
I see all these things… and more.
I’ve captured them with our boys and the many children that have been in front of my lens.
I want to tell your story as a family. Sure, we can do the photos that Granny wants – the smile “look at me”, so she can put it on the mantel. But there are all the moments that surround it, that show the true personality of your family… these are what we’ll discover if you invite me to capture your family, in your home or your favourite place.
I will play, I will run, I will read books, I will chat with the kids, I will get down on the floor to play lego… hey, I’ll even sing if necessary… although I can’t promise I’ll know all the words.
But most of all we’ll have FUN… and I’ll bring my camera.
