I remember when Paula asked me to photograph her wedding. It was particularly special because I've known Paula since primary school days! She was the tallest and I was the shortest in our class!
A lot has happened in the two years since I first took photos of Paula & Caleb at their engagement session and I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to document many of the precious milestones in their lives since.
I couldn't believe how much Mac had grown since I'd seen him last. He's such a wee dude and spent the entire session asking for "more pictures". And baby Rita is A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E and so chilled out the whole session. I had an awesome morning with the Hamill family capturing these photos, here's just a handful of my favourites...😍
I love this series of Mac on his digger in the sandpit!
Paula wanted to incorporate her wedding dress into a photo with Rita somehow because Mac had been a special part of their wedding day and this would be a way of including Rita into the story of their marriage. Who knows one day Rita may own Paula's beautiful wedding dress to cherish herself! I had to have a think about how I would create a photograph including the dress. I came up with an idea to make it feel a bit 'painterly' with the muted cream tones and the swirling tulle.
Team Hamill it was so wonderful to catch up with you and to meet your beautiful daughter, Rita. I have absolutely loved documenting the precious moments of your lives so far! Thank you so very much. I can't wait to get these photos printed for you! xx
