When I photograph your family one thing's for certain - there will be silliness. It's not hard for me to mentally tune in to the emotional range of a 7 year old. In fact I thoroughly enjoy it. Fart jokes? Sure! Tickle attacks? Most definitely. So when I recently wanted to shoot a new showreel for my website (spoiler alert - video coming soon!) I knew I needed a family who would 100% buy in to my personal brand of fun and genuine family-good-times.
Enter the Gray family. Friends from school and recently expanded from four to a household of five. I love working with families who can just totally relax into things and play without hesitation. And these guys did just that. So much so that at one point 5 year old Lucy asked me when we were starting the photography. "We already have" I said, "You just didn't realise".
Lucy and older brother Zac are peas in a pod. They feed off each other's energy and are quick to melt in to fits of giggles and hugs. Emily, the mellow new addition, is lavished with love and it looks like she'll have no option but to join the gang and prepare for some epic play sessions. I can only imagine the trouble this lot will get up to eventually.
Liz and Mitch - thank you so much for letting me join in the fun with you that morning. You guys were amazing!!
