Sleep tight, dream big. The world is at your feet xx
Like most, one of my fondest memories of childhood was autumn leaves. The colour, the immense joy of throwing them in the air, watching them float down and just being close to nature and it’s circle of life. Watching my two boys and my Godson Finn play in the leaves in Woodend was just amazing. Not sure who was smiling and laughing more. The kids, or us adults watching on, and lets face it, WANTING to join in! And for the record, yes the dog was jumping up higher than the kids are tall!
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had the privilege to photograph this gorgeous family! I have visited each child at least 4 times during their first year, so have watched them all grow for a while!
Presenting Mum her latest gallery, brought a sad but important image to her, totally by accident… This family have two gorgeous cats (and I love cats!) and all this time I’ve failed to get an image of the two of them together (and certainly not in the family photos!) But in the latest session, I captured Cleo watching over our session. It was the first image in the gallery.
I woke up this morning to this email:
“The photos are absolutely beautiful as ever.
I had a lovely surprise on opening them although it made me cry, seeing a beautiful picture of little Cleo, as sadly she had to be put to sleep last Friday, as she had a stroke which had left her back legs paralyzed.
We now have a beautiful picture of her so thank you!”
Capturing family pets is just so important, and even if it’s not the image I’d been hoping for over the years, just goes to show that the accidental ‘snapshot’ can be just so important. RIP Cleo, and my thoughts are with the gorgeous J family xx
