I am one lucky portrait photographer. I have great clients who share wonderful experiences with me as I go about photographing them!
I have known many of them for a decade or two and have had the privilege of watching their families grow up and see the children mature from newborn babies into teenagers and young adults. It is very rewarding for me to share in this and provide families with a unique pictorial history of their families.
I love it when I walk into their homes and see a gallery of photos representing my interpretations of their ever-changing family life. This family is one of those special ones.
Ruby, their oldest, is only 10 but it means I have photographed her and her brothers Patrick, Lewis and Timothy several times now since she was born. Each time we share a little more and our relationship strengthens. I love that!
Elissa chose me to begin photographing each of her four children when they were six months old. She was always in some of the photos but her husband Simon never was. So this time round we decided it was time for the complete family to be photographed; pets and all. (Read what Elissa had to say about her photography)
What a wonderful day we shared at their country property! I intended to be there for perhaps the entire morning. However, after being invited to stay for a tasty home cooked lunch under their signature golden elm tree, I was seduced into staying on for quite some time longer, taking photos of the kids as they played during the afternoon.

Such great company, a stunning location in which to photograph and wonderful hosts who were simply fun to spend the day with. A great day in the country that will certainly remain memorable for me.
If you would like photos of your own family please contact me so we can have a chat about what would be special to you.
