Will you travel to take photos of our family?
… the answer to this question is ALWAYS YES! One of the things I love about my job is meeting people from all over the world. I spent the first 18 years of my life constrained to the southern most part of Africa. Moving to London (and travelling over the equator for the first time) has given me a severe case of wanderlust I hope NEVER to recover from.
This is one of the reasons I was so captivated by the idea of photographing this gorgeous family on their youngest daughter's very first birthday at their home in Marbella.
Instead of throwing her a party she wouldn't really appreciate, what they decided to do, was give her the gift of memories. They decided to invest in a photographic celebration of her, and their family just as they are, right now.
This baby won't remember being 1 - and soon she'll be a big sister, so she'll never remember what it was like to be the littlest in her family.
But I love the idea that she'll be able to look back on the gallery of photographs of her and her family on her very first birthday and she'll be able to see just how much she is utterly adored.
Golden hour family photoshoot on the beach in Marbella
We did a series of small shoots over a couple of days, the first was on the beach near where the family live - at golden hour, of course.
They wanted to make sure that we captured photographs of them in spaces where they spent a lot of time together - and the beach is one of their favourite places to be.
The family at home
For each and every shoot I do, I ask families to tell me the kinds of things they love doing together, and this family spends a lot of time at home, snuggling in bed and playing outdoors in their garden, so I wanted to ensure I captured some memories of these spaces for them.
I really enjoyed every minute of spending time with this lovely lot! And if you are interested in booking me to capture some special memories of your family, why not get in touch? I’d absolutely love to talk about working together (no matter where you live!)
