Playful. This series of images screams playfulness - because that’s the type of family this is. I’ll be honest, I usually prefer not to photograph family sessions in the garden, unless it’s an overcast day and the harsh sun is diffused. On this day it wasn’t. As you can plainly see the sun was in full summer effect and the heat was relentless. But there was simply no stopping these guys, such is their drive to spend time together having fun and making the most of the day. And so our time together involved a spot of cricket, a few basketball layups, plenty of swinging and running and soccer and well, you get the idea. This is a family that knows how to have fun. The giggles don’t stop, the smiles were never hard to coax out - even when we attempted a very serious tongue in cheek family portrait. It’s a joy to witness, and a pleasure to photograph.
Bridget and Patrick, thank you so much for allowing me to spend the morning with your tribe. I know how rare it is to have you all in one place at the same time, let alone in the same spot for a photo. So I hope you love this vibrant account of your gorgeous family.
