I love photographing families – to be invited into a snippet of their day to document some authentic moments. Maybe it’s a Sunday morning, maybe it’s going to your favourite park, maybe it’s cooking together. Whatever it is, pick something that you love doing together, something that’s “your thing”. I know life is busy and we don’t always feel we are at your best because we devote so much of our time and energy to keep everything running. But life is also precious, and it will just fly by if we don’t take a moment and pause sometimes. I won’t tell you to “stand there and just smile”. Your hair doesn’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to wear matching outfits (actually, please don’t!). It’ll just be relaxed and natural and I will capture something that not only looks good, but feels good as well.

On a sunny day in May, that’s exactly what I did with Maria, Christian and baby Kleo.
