About 5 yrs ago i photographed this family for the first time, having met the lovely Maree through a friend of a friend and being thrown together through the kids school we kinda hit it off as did our boys and soon they were in front of my lens hamming it up like we’d known each other for ever…. fast forward to 2016 and this family is an extension of our own. Kids argue and make up while the mums solve the world’s problems over a cuppa (or a glass of wine) and the men well…. they’re usually outside turning the meat every three seconds while watching the latest footy game.
Yes, these people are so close to my heart and i have loved the journey we’ve had together, not that it’s now over but with us moving away the dynamics will shift a little…. there will be longer pauses between cuppas and bbqs but the sentiment will forever be the same.
“Each day I am thankful for;
nights that turned into morning,
friends that turned into family,
dreams that turned into reality and
likes that turned into love.”
