I photographed Leigh and Sarah's Wedding in 2012 when I was expecting my baby boy and they looked after me incredibly well that day, I will always be particularly fond of them and their two beautiful boys.  I have enjoyed seeing them again after welcoming their second baby Rowan and I got to hang out today with his big brother; the coolest, craziest little dude Elliot who I haven't seen since his baby shoot a couple of years ago, however Facebook has been a great platform for keeping in touch with so many of my couples and their families.

I know that by now both Leigh and Sarah are used to me and my camera, so the session was really relaxed and Elliot especially loved being in front of the camera, so much so I think he tried to steal the limelight a little bit.  What I love most with these types of documentary family shoots, is that there is not agenda, we just relax at home and I capture the family just being themselves.

What a beautiful family, I LOVE these moments, each one a new chapter for them.  Here you go Sarah and Leigh, thank you for asking me to photograph you and your boys I am truly blessed in doing so;  a sneak preview for you xx
