Every couple of years, I’m lucky enough to get asked to photograph Olivia and Tristan’s three daughters. It’s a real privilege for me as the first time I was at Olivia’s parent’s house was to photograph Olivia before her wedding. Then, every couple of years since then, a new addition to the family. The house must hold a huge amount of memories for Olivia and to be a small part of recording some of those is something hugely important to me. It’s one of the main reasons, if not the main reason, why I do what I do. I like to think that in some small way I have helped record some of those magical moments in people’s lives and create a lasting and beautiful record of events. Well, that’s what I certainly set out to do!
I know when I go to Olivia’s house, her girls will be immaculate, matching dresses, well brushed hair and beaming and polite “very pleased to see you” smiles. Some formal photos, perfect for the mantle piece but it’s like the girls sense they’ve done their job, they relax and then let happy chaos reign! My favourite part of any shoot! There’s nothing quite like the sheer and unadulterated joy to 7yr old that granny bringing out the bubble machine and letting rip.
