When my daughter was born everything changed for me, I realised what was really important. I can remember the first time she smiled back at me – how it made me feel, my excitement when my wife called me to say ‘Chloe rolled over today’ then hurrying home to watch in amazement as this tiny human rolled from her front to her back and then back again, all by herself! I wanted to photograph EVERYTHING, I wanted those memories but I wasn‘t present in the moment. I want to really live this, soak it up and bottle this feeling, I never want to forget it, because I know these moments are all too fleeting and soon she won’t just be rolling, she’ll be crawling, walking, climbing, talking, baking, writing, singing and one day she’ll be little miss independent and these everyday wonders that truly amaze me about her at the moment will be memories. Memories to treasure and look back on and remember how far we’ve all come as a family. This is why I started my family photography business as I now understand the importance of everything that happens with little kids and how important it is to get everything documented.
