Last week, I shot my most local job to date - I walked just 2 minutes from my house to meet some neighbours who had contacted me about a family photoshoot in their garden. All week, we had enjoyed almost summer weather, but alas, on Saturday, we got a mix of rain and snow, just in time for our shoot. However, we went with it, and we can say we got a few seconds of sunshine - there were even some shadows!
Amanda contacted me because her and her partner Craig have just celebrated their son, Elijah's first birthday, and wanted some family photographs to print and display. I was only too happy to oblige, I am very much in favour of having photographs printed and framed - after all, they are taken to been seen and enjoyed. Elijah wasn't too impressed with life on Saturday, but that made for some snuggly photographs rather than some walking, giggling and playing photographs. I love to show the relationships between people in my photographs and I think this was even more successful in that regard than it would have otherwise been.
Happy birthday, Elijah, you're a lovely lad!
