Words cannot describe what a privelidge it is to be a family photographer. I am being picked out among hundreds of others to be a part of a family's journey and have been the person chosen to document that time in a Family's life. The McWilliams are dear to me. Being one of my clients from my early days in photography, I have documented their journey from the beginning. Starting out as a young couple, Sophia approached me to capture her pregnancy with her first born. Her baby boy, little Henry came earthside soon afterwards and I captured those early newborn days together at home. 2 years later, Sophia and Mark have asked me to capture the next chapter in their lives. Baby number two! I am so incredibly excited for them as they await the arrival of Henry's new little sibling. I spent the afternoon with the McWilliams, documenting this important and expiring time of life with just one crazy energy filled toddler.
Daily life of the McWilliam Household involves Sophia chatting and preparing food with Henry in the kitchen, Henry especially loves it when he gets special treats such as chocolate cake! When Mark is home from work, Henry loves to play with his Dad in the living room. They rough house, joke around and pull out the toys for some special one on one time. In the afternoon they will head to bed for a nap (or not!) where they will enjoy a cuddle and a kiss and a story. Something Henry really enjoys.
On the Weekends, Sophia and Mark usually like to get out of the house to their local cafe or beach. Clontarf is a favourite of Marks, where his family have been going for generations. Late afternoon they took a stroll down by the water. Henry tries to find shells and chases the tide, as the sun went down.
