Mel was one of my first PROPER photography clients. As in, she wasn't a friend or family member or friend of a friend ! When I received an email from her saying she wanted to book a photo session with me, to be honest, my first instinct was to reply and ask her whether she was sure she had the right person ! But thankfully, I played it cool (well, my husband would probably disagree with me here....) and I was so lucky to end up having an absolute dream session with this gorgeous family - I mean, cmon'... look at this baby!!! He's got to be the happiest baby in the world right!?
It was one of those mornings that filled me with excitement and made me realise how much I LOVE what I'm doing and how passionate I am about it. I LOVE capturing the real, genuine and loving moments that families share. The little cuddles and kisses that you share every day but rarely think to document or capture because it's just part of your every day life. Those hilarious expressions and baby giggles that you photograph on your iphone are amazing, seriously, I have a hard drive full of the same snap shots that you do! But when you take that photo on your iphone, what are you missing!? You are missing YOU!! Those baby giggles and faces are so precious, but what is more precious is the relationship you share with your baby who, in a few short years, won't be so little or so easily amused. So when you become a source of complete embarrassment to your children, the photos you have from when they were 7 months old and are looking at you like you are the greatest thing in the whole entire universe.... well I think they will be pretty special !!
Thank you so much for trusting in me to capture your families story Mel & Aidan !
