This family hold a special place in my heart. Steph and I both started our photography journeys around the same time and have always stayed close as both friends and industry peers. Four years ago we both picked up cameras, keen to learn and full of hopes & dreams. Today Steph is a leading newborn photographer based in Queenstown and my summer is full on shooting weddings! Oh how far we have come my friend, how much of our dreams we have lived out & how many more we still have!
Also in those four years of friendship I've watched Noah grow into a handsome young boy, the arrival of Harper Rose and she's no longer a baby either, but an independent young girl with the cutest blonde curls around!
So when the Reid family came to visit in November I had the pleasure of taking some updated family portraits for them. And what a beautiful, photogenic family! I could have clicked away for hours in the beautiful late afternoon light we had.
Is it obvious that these two cuties have spent a bit of time in front of Steph's camera?!
Harper Rose with those gorgeous curls. And how can it be that I envy a 3 year old's wardrobe!?!
Whispered stories and secrets, giggles and well...actually I have no idea what was happening in that shot on the left! These two are best friends - most of the time ;-)
Now you two are a bit cute. I just love your happy faces!
There was no way I could end this blog with anything except these three images. Just heart-melting!
Steve & Steph, thank you so much for trusting me with capturing your family portraits. It was so great to catch up with you and I had a lot of fun taking these photos and more! I look forward to seeing them in print! All my love.xxx
