Mary and Family

Mary is 91 and a beautiful photo subject. She smiled so comfortably and sweetly, and she is clearly much-loved by her grandkids and children. We had a fantastic garden session at her daughter Jenny’s home, capturing lots of different combinations before one of her grandchildren was set to leave for 4 years of study in the United States.

Here are some of the photos we captured.

We had some fun with the full family shots – starting with a fairly ‘straight on’ group photo but it soon deteriorated (or improved!) to capture lots of laughter and connection between them all. We finished the session with a tradition of having Mary seated at a particular chair in the lounge room, surrounded by her grandchildren… something which normally happens on Christmas day but they won’t all be together this next Christmas. Again, this got quite snuggly and I loved the energy between them all.

I’ll end the gallery with a cute shot of Mary and her canine twin….

I hope the family loves what we were able to gather in our short session, it was lots of fun for me.
