I’ve had a lot of practice photographing my own children, and those photos mean the world to me. Facebook often surprises me with photos from several years ago of my eldest as a toddler, looking so much like my youngest does now. How I cherish those photos. It’s such a gift to be able to capture other families and create memories for them, and photos to look back upon as their children grow like wildfire.
I drove to the country to capture this gorgeous, connected family amongst the grass and hale bales of a cattle farm. The tenderness, laughter, playfulness and love had me choked up as I edited these pictures. That first sad face was a passing moment as she battled hayfever from cuddling a horse, but it was quickly replaced by giggles and giant leaps from hay bale to hay bale. xx
