Stef is one of my oldest friends, we met at secondary school where we were in the same tutor group and went through some hard and mischievous times together as teens. We don't see each other nearly as much as we'd like, but when we do it's like no time has passed.
Back in August baby Ethan arrived and in September I went to visit the family at their home in Cornwall. Stef and Mike are such wonderful parents, so chilled and full of fun. Three year old Emily loves the camera, and the camera certainly loves her with her beautiful big eyes like mummy. Emily has bounds of energy, was full of inquisitive questions about my cameras and was so helpful and lots of fun to photograph. Baby Ethan was showered with cuddles and kissed from his big sister (sometimes a little too much).
I love watching and documenting families grow, capturing the joy, the madness, the fun and the love. I get a huge amount of pleasure from being able to give these memories back to people in their images. In the new year I'm looking forward relaunching my website and sharing more of my family photography.
If you are interested in organising a shoot for your own family, then I'd love to hear from you.
