I come from a large family, with three sisters of my own. When my older sister asked if I had time to pop out to their family farm to grab some photos of my niece and nephew of course I said yes!
I love taking photos of children in their natural environment, where they are relaxed and happy. We had such a fun time. There were plenty of laughs and some pretty ordinary joke telling. I know what my nephew is getting for his upcoming birthday!
I don’t think my poor sister was expecting to have to appear in the photos. But I feel very strongly that its important that mothers, in particular, who are often the ones documenting their family memories actually appear in some photographs themselves. And these images are beautiful.
This image captures so beautifully their fun little personalities.
