It was bittersweet to photograph this family. I photographed them when they just brought Henry home from the hospital and now they are about to move back home to America. Surely, as a person who’s moved quite a bit I can completely relate to all the chaos and excitement of the big move. So when Lizzy enquired about a session just before their departure, I knew how important it’d be for them to capture their favourite things, Henry’s first home and to be able to translate their year’s experience into images so that they can share with the family.
I have to say, I had 55 million ideas of what we can do and it is very important for me to be on the same page with my client. Yet, through this session I realised that it is equally important for me to go with the flow and shoot as the day unfolds. So thank you guys for letting me do this for you. And for me. Because sometimes you meet such awesome people that get you and your ways. And the feeling is so mutual.
I know I’ve said this about my other client’s children, but I do mean it every time. Henry reminded me of my own son in so many ways and I am bit sad to see you go, yet so very excited at the same time that these guys get to reunite with their families! Have a fantastic and adventurous trip home and please keep the promise of coming back with a little girl 🙂
Until next time,
