What are your favourite memories from your childhood?
Is it the expensive gifts you got one Christmas? Or the all-inclusive family holiday in Florida your parents spent years saving up for?
Or maybe it was actually the camping trip where it poured with rain and you ended up sleeping in the car? Or riding up and down the garden path on your battered, rusty bike while your Dad tried to squirt you with water from the hose pipe?
It’s funny how, when asked, most people will recall the least grandiose memories of their early years.
Most pick out memories of simple experiences like walking with Grandma along the beach, searching for fossils in the sand. Or memories that involved family traditions such as gathering around the living room table to play Cluedo for the umpteenth time and always losing to Dad!
And now you’ve grown up and have families of your own. You’re creating new memories with them – things they will always remember with a smile years from now.
The ability to line up a family on a bench in the park and get them all looking at the camera and smiling at the same time… well, it’s not difficult. Anyone with a half decent camera can manage the same thing.
I WANT TO CAPTURE MORE.
I want to capture the essence of your family, the heart and soul of you all.
Family is about honesty. It’s about being unguarded and unafraid. It knows your flaws and your moods and it doesn’t care a jot.
Family takes the rough with the smooth and accepts everything about you.
