Documentary family photos of Linda's family enjoying time together - planting strawberries and sharing so much more.
~ The photos of Linda and her family ~
Family simplicity - not simple photos
This family session joins Linda and her family on the weekend, as they plant seeds in the garden, picnic outside, and simply relax together. Properly relax, that is. And if you're thinking about your own weekends, and that simply hanging out at home might not yield much by way of photos, I want to urge you to look further here, and to consider what photographs of these moments might really be able to show.
Seeing each other as a real family
During the session, as the family made their natural way through their day, feeling free to linger over each and every moment they shared, it was a joy to see the subtle gestures and acts of togetherness that seemed to emerge out of their simple everyday living. It was also lovely to see the little acts of mischief and fun emerging too! And so as the afternoon session moved through to the early evening, and as serenity flowed into laughter - and back again - it was very clear that this beautiful family were showing something genuine about themselves.
Photos that don't need you to go anywhere
It might be easy to think that, when it comes to family photos, to show something worth seeing means doing something spectacular or special. But, as I hope you can see from these photos - which do nothing but tell the story of genuine human connection, as felt by three people - this need not be the case at all. And, why not relax into the notion that: there is nothing extra that you need to do in order to show how hard you love and how precious your life is. Nothing other than being yourselves, and living your real, beautiful life - just the way you love it.
