I've followed and photographed Bobbie and her beautiful family through so many amazing times in their lives - through the preparations and after the birth of her baby girl, celebrating milestones and each year as a family together. This year we decided to go to the beach for some fun in the sea, playing in the sand and generally having an amazing time together on a sunny Sunday morning this spring. I'll never forget this particular session - having arrived at Brancaster I was told that the beach road was flooded and cars were not able to get to the car park - disaster! But, as I thought about what to do I remembered how light I like to travel so parked up in the village, grabbed my cameras and strap and set off on foot! I'm so thankful it was warm and sunny as I waded through the water, cameras held high above my head! Love these adventures!
As a child, growing up in Cambridgeshire, the closest seaside to us was Hunstanton on the Norfolk coast. We used to paddle, skim stones, build sandcastles and run around the beach huts all summer and winter long. So whenever a client asks me to photograph their happy times there I always jump at the chance. I've photographed this amazing family a few times now and we meet up each autumn/winter to capture some new memories. Mum is expecting their second baby so it was extra special to capture the last few months of them all as a family of three before their new bundle arrives in 2017.
