the Story of Us || Smith Family
To me, this is family photos.
I’m passionate about photographing family connections and not just family portraits, because life goes too quickly. I want to remember what it felt like when my own children snuggled into me, and the way they laughed when I tickled them. I want photos that document the things that makes them happy, and the things that we love to do as a family.
My photos are real. They encompass all of the quirks and imperfections that make you, you. I want you to see the beauty in your relationships when you connect and interact with your children.
To me, these moments of sheer joy are a much more powerful memory than the photo where you are all looking at a camera.
A little while ago I spent the afternoon with this beautiful little family, doing all of the things that Lucy loves!
Lucy has the most beautiful, loving parents who are always there and present for their daughter. You can see the joy she has being part of such a caring and fun family – who embrace the quirks and fun of childhood!
I love that they didn’t feel the need to wash the drawing of her legs, or dress her in a super cute but uncomfortable outfit. They let her be her, and that’s what this story is all about! <3
These are a few of Lucy’s favourite things!
