Back in April, I joined Ali and her three kids on her mother’s farm, to create some portraits for her husband’s birthday. We spent a great hour climbing trees and running around, and I got introduced to their pet chickens. I love working with little ones, they’re often so open and eager to share their interests and joy at the world; showing a keen and genuine interest in what they have to say comes naturally to me, and helps develop great rapport for some lovely photos. I created a range of images in the time we had together – of all three; more posed individual shots; shots of each with some thing they love (in this case, a tree, a trampoline and a chicken!); and group shots with other family members.
For the last ten minutes, we were joined by Ali’s mother and grandmother, and I had the honour of photographing four generations of women together. I hope one day I get to do the same with my mum and the Bee…
Below are a couple of favourites. Thanks Ali, and a huge thanks to the kids for showing me your chickens, woods and tractors!
