I was enthusiastically greeted at the family’s door by Joanna and Eric’s confident two year old, Henry. Wasting no time on pleasantries and feeling perfectly comfortable in his birthday suit, the little master of the house introduced me to his kingdom while mom and dad finished getting ready (because when there’s a newborn in the house, no-one’s going to be ready on time). Henry proudly showed me his new brother, Caspar, sleeping peacefully in his cot and then on to his bedroom to meet some dinosours. Dad arrived on the scene to ensure that the rest of the family photos would include Henry with his clothes on.
The next two hours were this photographer’s dream – a loving family, beautiful sunny rooms and a little of the real chaos of life with a new baby (note Henry holding Caspar in a choke hold). This is my favorite kind of shoot to do – creating a record of what life is really like in the space we live.
Thank you, Joanna and Eric, for welcoming me into your home to capture your beautiful family.
