On Friday I had the pleasure of shooting the lovely Parkinson family for the THIRD time! Its lovely to capture families with little children but I have to say its just as special to capture a family of adults. Theres something even more poignant about bringing your grown up children back together and celebrating bringing them up to be three wonderful human beings with their own careers, ideas and ambitions.
Bella has contacted me each time one of her three turn 18. First it was Henry and we went to the beach. Next it was Brittany and we did a wonderful shoot at home and finally despite their last shoot being four whole years ago Edward has now turned 18. It was so special to catch up with them and hear about all the amazing things they have been up to and the incredible adventures they have ahead. Brittany has an exciting new job in fashion. Henry is moving to Newcastle with his girlfriend and also starting a new job in a few weeks and Edward is also heading to Newcastle to study dentistry. Safe to say Bella and Mike are super proud of them and what another great chapter in their life I have been lucky enough to shoot.
This one also had a double celebration as Bella and Mike are about to celebrate their 25 year marriage!
Huge thanks to the Parkinsons, I so hope I get the honour to capture weddings and maybe one day grandchildren in the future!
