When I met first time parents in the studio I am compelled to “warn” them of how fast their tiny baby is going to grow. Just as my Father tried to warn me when our first daughter was born.
A favourite and most special thing about photographs for me personally is that the further away from that particular moment you get the more the image “grows” in power. You see a simple snap shot a few years later and relive that day, that moment. You are shocked at how much your little people have grown. You remember where you were and what happened. Oh I do love doing that!! Even simple “iPhone” images allow this feeling to flow back. Priceless!
I have over a the past few years taken images of my girls on their summer holidays as I LOVE summer, swimming and that special time with friends and family. This year I decided to do the entire school holidays and to not put technical pressure on myself….simply remembering the above and how over time these images are going to become more and more powerful.
Here is a simple slideshow of what was a beautiful summer for us.
