So today is meant to be all about the one you love. Whether it’s heart shaped chocolates or pink fizz you desire, today is the day that your other half should spoil you rotten! I like to think that every day should be Valentine’s Day! You should be celebrating your love for each other every day (even though some days it takes a bit more work than others)! With hubby working away from home a lot, we try and make the most of the time we have together (when I’m not shooting weddings) - whether it’s going for a walk down by the river, making each other cups of coffee / redbush tea while we’re editing or lying in each other’s arms on the couch, watching Miranda!
Today’s little post is not really about Valentine’s day and love for the one, it’s more about loving your family and cherishing each wonderful season of life together. With all our family back in South Africa and some of Wayne’s family in Australia, we’ve learnt to make the most of technology – Skype etc to keep in touch with our families and heading back for holidays is fantastic, even though it’s always hard to come back to the UK – leaving our loved ones behind, but it’s nice to know that we all appreciate each other just as much (maybe even a little more), than when we saw each more often! So in the spirit of celebrating the meaning of LOVE today, I’d like to share Gillian, Tom and little Zach’s family shoot from October 2011 in Reigate. They are such a gorgeous family and it was really special to capture their love for each other on camera.
Whether you’re starting your journey as a couple, tying the knot, starting a family or just love your family, make sure you treasure the season you’re in and take lots of photos!
Here are a few of my favourite photos from my afternoon with Gillian, Tom & Zach, enjoy!
