Time spent with family is always enjoyable; its even more poignant when the rest of your life is hard. Its a reminder that there are people who will be there for you, supporting you. My husband and I received a number of hard blows these last few weeks, and just that brief moment away from it all for a weekend helped provide the strength to face the challenges in front of us.
This is my grandfather. He has worked most of his life on the land, and still owns and runs his own sheep farm. The photo you can see was taken seven years ago, but I intend to share something a little more recent soon. A little more personal.
The last time I done a set of photos for my sister and her family, their little girl Kaitlyn wasn’t even born. I felt now would be a good time to provide the family with a new group photo to share with their loved ones.
This isn’t one of the photos from Bunker Bay, but it is another of the photos I found on my card. I’d taken this for my brother-in-law and his wife as a present. Taken in the Supreme Court Gardens in Perth, it was a quick shot that I like quite a bit. Its a shame about the tree trunk in the top corner drawing your eye away but I was hot and grumpy when I took the photo (Summer in WA isn’t my favourite season).
I have three nephews, and two nieces. This beautiful child is the youngest of the five. I took this photo for my sister, whose hand she is holding, when she was roughly a month old. She’s such a sweet-natured baby.
This one is a little older, from late 2014. I did take a few more photos that year than 2015 but I was as remiss with posting then as I was last year. It is a habit I really need to try and improve.
This photo was taken at my brother’s (in-law) wedding to his beautiful bride. It was a special day for everyone, and I felt blessed to be able to take a few photos for them to remember the day. This was a candid shot, that I took when they were waiting for their official photographer to ready her camera for a more professional photograph. Personally I adore this one, and I’m probably quite biased in my preference for this photo over any of the others that were taken that day. It says a lot about the couple themselves, who I love and adore.
