Family, to me there’s nothing more important. I have a young family but already I’m seeing how quickly time goes and how vital it is to catch and document as much as you can, as they flourish and develop. It’s such an enormous cliché, but kids really do grow up quickly. These times are golden, so why not capture a little before they’re gone.
I’d like to take your photographs in locations and environments relevant to you; in your house, your garden, your local park or maybe the beach where you walk your dog. I want my photos to say something about you and your life. I’m not really into posed photos. I want to bring my documentary approach to weddings into your home, in the hope of capturing a slice of your life. I like to see the day-to-day: having breakfast together, brushing teeth, going for a walk, playing, painting and beyond. There’s so much beauty and energy in these seemingly routine things.
A bit like this.
