I meet Rose when I photographed her wedding some years ago. Those of you who no this brave young mum will already no her story. It’s not my story to tell but I have been with her and captured her life journey through the years and we have never missed a year since Declan who is now 8 bounced into our lives. Rose knows the importance of a photograph, a memory caught in time to treasure and pull out whenever you need to feel that sense of belonging. We have always thought outside the box for her and her little ones so this year we captured Rose and her babies in a new location. We chose the Murray River with its smoky background as the summer fires still burned in parts of our country and bought along little 5 year old Phyeton’s guitar, which these images are now up there with some of my most favourite ever !!! I wanted to capture these kids just as they are, all sunshine and summer vibes as they were still on their school holidays. The most beautiful thing for me is to see this little family every year and dish out hugs and see how much they have grown.

You guys hold a special part in my heart and you can so tell there is an angel also watching you grow and seeing what beautiful little humans you are …. Lxxx
