So I am in a bit of a weird place starting up this photography business of mine… I started out taking pictures of our every day life. And then I learnt how to do it better. And then people wanted me to start taking pictures for them. Which was amazing because I LOVE to do it… but that has led me into more posed shoots, maternity, newborn etc and away from where I started out – documentary family photos.
I honestly think that one day a year, every family should get a photographer to come over for breakfast and not leave until the sun goes down. Capture the moments, the tears, the tantrums, the smiles, the cuddles, and most of all – capture the every day stuff that is unremarkable in its “everydayness” but in 10 years time when you look back, these are the pictures that are really going to remind you of how life was then. And it will remind you it was wonderful.
So on this day I went to my lovely friends’ The Langdowns and took some pictures of them just doing what they do. No set ups, no poses, just them. I love them. Hope you do too!
