Our trip around the sun – A year in their life – documentary style family photographer

A year ago I started out on a personal journey.  My goal was to document a family for a year of their life.

Just doing what they do.

Just being who they are.

I needed to do this.  I wanted to see if I could make the ordinary seem extraordinary.  Find the beauty in the chaos and the magic of the every day.  I didn’t want a home that was filled with light, or always perfectly prepared.  Many times I would arrive at my family’s home and the sink would be full of dishes, or the laundry making itself apparent.  Toys in the corners and children still in their pyjamas with breakfast on their face.  It was perfect.

I want to thank the Cimbur’s for letting me in.  For opening up and being raw and real and ready.    I can’t wait for you to see all of your finished images and I hope that you enjoy looking back on this year of your life.  Your trip around the sun with me.

Forever love.

Letting go of Roxy

I can remember the first night with my puppy so clearly.  I had put her in her crate beside my bed and she cried and cried.  It was the most heartbreaking sound in the world.  Finally I caved and brought that tiny puppy into my bed.  She curled up right beside me and from then on we both slept soundly taking comfort in each other.   Last night, 13 years later I held my dog beside me in bed for what was to be her last night on this earth.  Again, we took comfort in each other’s presence knowing that we were there for each other as we have been all of these years.

Tonight we say goodbye to Roxy.  I have been dreading this day since the first time I picked up my beautiful pup and fell instantly in love with her.   Since that moment I have wondered how I will ever live without her and today I will find out.  Some of you might read this and think “it’s just a dog”.  I can assure you that Roxy is the furthest thing from “just a dog” that there is.

She has been my confidant, my best friend, my nurse maid and my therapist.  She has been there with me through break ups, illness, my marriage and the birth of all three of my children.   It was HER photograph that I took with me into the delivery room when I had my first baby. It was her that stood sentinel by my side with every challenge that life threw my way.   She is my happy place.

Last night I had a dream.  I dreamed that I faced some of my demons and set myself free.  In my dream my demons had placed Roxy in a tiny cage.  She lay crumbled on the floor unable to move and in very bad shape.  I let her out of her cage and we ran away together.  At first she struggled to walk, but as we got further and further away she started to run and wag her tail.  She was free.

I truly feel that Roxy was sending me a message last night as we lay together.   She was telling me that I’ve got this.  That it’s time to set her free and so I shall.   I shall free her the way that she has freed me for the past 13 years.

Last night my sister said to me “How lucky that you had a relationship so beautiful that it hurts so much when it ends.”  I couldn’t agree more.  We are the lucky ones.

Rest Easy sweet girl.  You will never ever be forgotten.

Kim Patry - Oh my Dear friend. Your heart. My Love to you.

Kerry - Dogs change your life for the better. They are the one constant pretty much every day, and see you through more life changes than most of your family and friends. From someone who’s heart has been made bigger through gaining a soul hound, my heart breaks for you. X

Month 11 – a year in their life – Family Photographer in Cambridge

It’s 11 months later and since I first met Brigitte in her kitchen 11 months ago the family has grown.

We now have baby Aussie and Lola the kitten, who by the way is very best friends with little Dimi, as you will see.

Hard to believe that it’s been almost a year since we started our photography journey.

In case you haven’t been following along, a year ago I embarked on a personal project which was to photograph a family in their home once a month for a year.   I love the depth, emotion and storytelling of this kind of portraiture and I really needed to stretch my creative wings.  My hope is that by showing just how beautiful in home portrait sessions can be, it will inspire my clients to try it for themselves.  I have loved every minute with Brigitte’s beautiful family.  Now we just have to decide what we will do for our finale next month:)

Have you enjoyed following along on this personal journey with me?  I’d love to hear all of your thoughts so don’t be shy and feel free to leave your comments.

Family portraits in the studio – Family photographer in cambridge

I would say for sure that the vast majority of my portrait work is either done in my client’s homes or outdoors.

However, some clients prefer a clean and classic look to their family portraits and for that I do like to take advantage of my photography studio in Cambridge.

I think sometimes it’s hard for clients to envision exactly what modern day portrait studio photographs would look like so today I’d like to share a few images from a recent family photography session here in the cambridge studio.

Studio portraits will definitely work better for some families than others.  Are you considering family portraits this year and not sure whether an outdoor session or studio session is right for you?  Give me a call and I can always help you to decide.
