It was totally awesome to capture this family (and their blow up dinosaur!) earlier back in August at their home in Surrey. They are the one of the most loving and fun families to be around... and the little ones are as gorgeously cheeky as they look! I was touched to receive this beautiful testimonial shortly after they received their images - this really is what it is all about for me!
We had wanted an updated photograph of our not so little family for so long, but I have to admit I had been avoiding it. We had had photo sessions in the past where I really did not feel comfortable and I felt I couldn't relax.
I had seen your work before and loved the life that shone out through the photographs, how relaxed and at ease the subjects looked. I knew you were the person to capture the characters in my children's faces.
I was nervous before you arrived, the children were full of beans, and reluctant to take instructions. You introduced yourself to the children and encouraged them to go off and play. They loved the freedom you gave them, showing you their toys whilst you snapped away and chatted to them.
My youngest son can be a live wire and will very often ignore new people, but he quickly responded to you as you let him guide you, which in turn meant he showed you his true character and this most definitely is reflected in the resulting photographs.
We were quite keen on having a photograph of all 8 members of our family and we are over the moon to now have some. No posing involved, just a natural flowing photograph which shows our energies, our connections and our bond as a family.
Our photographs are truly priceless, a true day full of happy and funny moments captured in time forever.
We were all so relaxed on the day of our shoot and your ability to be able to read and capture the characters of us all is truly a gift.
