I can't quite believe that 2 months have already passed since my last blog. I was doing very well at the beginning of the year; I guess the new years resolutions kept me going for a while. You plan to make certain changes but then life catches up with you, and you don’t even realise you have slipped into the old same habits you intended to change in the first place. It’s the same with fitness and activity. Do you know what I am talking about? I usually don’t last long due to lack of time (or that is my excuse anyway). Working two jobs is very time consuming. At least I have the excuse that I cycle 8 miles a few days a week. I guess that’s not too bad.
Today I would like to share a very special photo session with you. I don’t write about every session as I don’t want to bore my readers and also because not every client would like to be seen on the internet. However, this photo shoot was rather memorable as it gave me the chance to photograph newborn twins for the first time. Two gorgeous girls called Bethany and Caitlyn, only three weeks old at the time. I have had the pleasure of photographing their big sister Evie before. And now all three girls together! Oh it was a joy!
As you can imagine, soothing one newborn to sleep in order to capture those precious poses is hard work, but two at once - well, it is not impossible! It just needs a little bit more patience. And some patience ;-) As so often in these sessions, I got weed on, this time on top, trousers and socks simultaneously. But that is part of the experience and I don’t mind at all! It’s still better than poo :-)
Anyway, all three girls were absolute super stars. We convinced Evie to have her picture taken together with her little sisters and then the twin girlies even slept for a little while for me, and that at the same time. I believe I can speak for the parents when I say that the session was a success.
The parents, Dawn and Tom send me these lovely words: “Your photos are beautiful and have really captured the spirit of all of us. We are so pleased with all your photos right from the start. You are really talented and I hope your business grows and grows. We will always remember you as we will have the photos forever and to pass on to the children. We will treasure the photos and look forward to our next photo shoot of our family.” It is so heart warming when the people I photograph are happy with the results. I have to admit it even brought tears to my eyes.
Dawn and Tom decided to have their favourite images mounted in a beautiful wooden frame and I hope it is hanging on their wall by now :-) Thank you, it was a pleasure and I am looking forward to photograph your family again.
Lots of love,
