In the last 6 months I've had the pleasure of shooting a handful of families who are visiting the UK for their vacations.
Jenna and her family were the first to ask me to capture this for them, and I can't tell you how excited I was to type scream
when she asked me.
I've known Jenna via the wonder that is the internet for a while now - she's a fellow photographer, creative, artsy soul, who is generous and kind and just a massive list of all the good things.
Whenever we hang out or chat it's quick to get to the stuff that matters - the heart of everything.
Those kinds of people are my truly my favourite.
Shooting photographers is the both the best and scariest of sessions-
BEST, because they encourage you to push and grow and make something new. Basically, you really wanna wow them.
But also SCARY, because these are people with their own camera skills and visual talent
and so, you really wanna wow them.
But I'll tell you a secret about female photographers - they are the hardest done by.
They are running around creating art of their own children and partners, and other peoples loves on the regular...
but not often does someone do it for them.
And so it was a gift to be able to hand these over to Jenna after our time together. her, at the centre of it all.
I hope that when her children look back on these they'll remember that summer in London, running amok through a city ablaze with the most beautiful September light.
The feeling of their mothers gaze and hands holding on to the only thing that matters, whilst the red of the telephone boxes
lit everything up behind them.
Guys, you made London look even more beautiful than it already is. Thank you for sharing that time with me x
If you're about to head to London or Brighton for a vacation and would like me to come and capture your family exploring the city, let's chat!
