Life with teens

I don’t often manage to persuade my children to take part in family photos but seeing as it’s been 4 years since the last time I got us all together in front of the camera I ¬†thought it was time ūüôā

Even though it’s August the weather was chilly and a little wet, you can see the rain in some of the photos and we almost decided to call it a day but I had faith¬†that¬†my 85mm 1.2L would bring enough light to the pictures. I <3 that lens so much!

So here we all are. Ages 49, 44, 16 and almost 14. In the spirit of celebrating the age you are and the age you look I have decided on a policy of no skin editing so here we all are, wrinkles and all.

Just look at these two cute girls! They were an absolute pleasure to photograph and where nicer than in their own home. It really doesn’t seem like a year ago that I was photographing the younger sister as a¬†newborn!

Spring Lamb

I think the reason I loved this shoot so much is because it turned out just as I had imagined it beforehand. I had borrowed an 85mm 1.2L from a photographer friend and fell in love instantly. I ended up buying one not long afterwards because I knew this was the kind of photography I wanted to be doing.

All of these pictures are edited using my Essential Workflow action set from Set2 and also some of them have Sunlight Overlays.  IMG_5466 IMG_5504 IMG_5534 IMG_5568 IMG_5631 IMG_5639 IMG_5654 IMG_5674 IMG_5734

Band of brothers

Just look at these cute boys. It’s rare that you can get two older boys to happily sit for photos with a new baby sibling but these two were exeptional!

The colour of love

Just a few from a gorgeous family that I have had the pleasure of taking pictures when each of their children were newborns. I know these two boys are going to be the best big brothers ever to their baby sister!
