One of the things I love most about photography is the ability to freeze a moment in time. To distill a memory into tangible form. Something to be looked at, reminisced over, laughter & tears relived. So when a very dear friend of mine announced she was moving away, I was deeply touched to be commissioned to provide her and her family with a series of landscapes to bring with them as they set off on this new adventure. So while they embrace the future, they are still holding on to the gorgeous home where they built a house, built a family, built their dreams.
Witha veiw like this, I’m not surprised they want to take as much of it with them as possible:
One of the essentials in the brief was to capture the old railway line that runs through the base of their property
And just for fun, I got this shot of a delightful, free-spirited little two-year-old who holds a special place in my heart.
Not a traditional portrait, by far, but it is very “her”. I also did baby photos for this wild soul almost two year ago now, which I blogged here.
Dearest K, you will be greatly missed. I hope these images help to ease the transistion to your new home. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. Much love, Rxx
