While editing the photos after a recent family photo shoot, I noticed again how much one can see in a photograph. A picture paints a thousand words!

Without knowing each member of the family well, I could see the kindness in the father’s eyes; the bond between the siblings.   A family places their trust in a photographer to capture not only the outward appearance, but something of the emotions and character of the family too. This is why I try and spend a few minutes chatting to each family member before the shoot, to get to know them a little.

With a newborn photoshoot, there is no hiding the love and pride and gratitude on the face of each parent. And who can blame them!

I love my work. Thank you to this beautiful family for allowing me into their space.
