‘Family is not an important thing, it is everything’

Four Generations Photography Session
This Autumn, 9 months on from her newborn session, I had the pleasure of photographing this little one again. It’s so lovely to see her growing (too fast!) and to see her cheeky character developing.
The session proved to be a rare and very special one. Capturing the relationships between four generations of women as 10 month old Nova is lucky enough to have her mum Amy, her Grandma Karen and her Great-Grandma Josephine around her. These are precious times.
Beautiful both inside and out these are strong women with generations of strong women before them. It always intrigues me as to how those generations before influence us so much in our day to day lives. The qualities that have been passed down that have made us stronger, our nuances and our family traditions.
‘Forget the housework … just enjoy being with your children as they will grow so quickly’.
Daughter, Mother and Grandmother.
So I asked Karen (Grandma) what special qualities have been passed down through the generations by women in her own family and what advice she’s giving to Amy in raising her own daughter today.
What better way to capture the strength of family than through photographs. I love that part of my job is creating these memories that will be treasured for many generations to come.

Isn’t there a picture somewhere of Grandma, Mum, you and Jess somewhere? You should post that too sometime.
Yes! There’s two infact, one of Great Grandma, Grandma, Mum as well as the one you describe a generation on.. I will definitely dig them out.
