When Katie asked me to shoot her family at the beautiful Freshwater Beach how could I possibly say no. I love this beach at twilight and I love how this handsome young man has such special connection with his father.
I was flattered but nervous when my friend and fellow photographer asked me to photograph her family. soI headed down south to a beach close to her home hoping for a gorgeous twilight but we encountered only silver skies... but great surf. We started our shoot but not long into the session the boys couldn't resist the surf donned their wetsuits and headed into the water. So I turned my camera on Max and Trudy. Max had bought a bottle of champagne the same as he had opened on the day he proposed to Trudy to ease the pain of having to be photographed (life can be hell when your married to a photographer).
I love these photos of Max and Trudy together you can see and feel their love for each other. We are always photographing our children but often forget to turn the camera on ourselves. Trudy an Max you both are so gorgeous together your boys are so lucky to have you as parents!
I last met Max when he was two days old in the hospital it was so nice to see him again and how he has grown. I am looking forward to also meeting his new sibling in the coming weeks.
Every summer I carry my little camera down to the beach when I go for a swim, here's Sydney's summer so far seen through my eyes.
