I recently had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with Lucy, Si and their lovely family, on what turned out to be a sweltering hot day! So a trip to the coast and ice cream was definitely in order!
I’ve known Lucy for a number of years through my wedding photography work. Lucy is a fabulous make-up artist and we’ve worked on a number of weddings together over the years. I was thrilled when she contacted me back in March to commission me to undertake a documentary family photo shoot as a mother’s day gift for her mum.
So the basis for the shoot was to just spend some time observing their interactions as a family, just going about their day as they usually would so I could deliver a slice of their family life. Every parent knows that their children change so quickly, so it’s a wonderful opportunity to capture each stage. Ruby was such a character and it was a total delight to have this time with them.
Here’s the lovely feedback Lucy gave me…
“Thank you so much for the beautiful family photos, they have literally just made my heart explode!! My mum and I are in tears, so thank you again for such wonderful keepsakes and for such a lovely experience!”
So, here are a few of my favourite images from our afternoon together….
