Growing Up Fast // Family Photography // The MacEwen’s
As a creative, it’s not always easy to like your own work. It’s a natural desire to always want to improve and produce better work. So you are inclined to look for the faults. If there is a set of images I am very proud of then that would definitely be The Crawford’s family photographs. It was an amazing idea to photograph Kiki’s first year every three months, but it’s more than that. When people allow you into their lives, be vulnerable and you capture precious intimate moments, then it’s special. There is a great Ted Talk by Brene Brown on “The power of vulnerability” which I try and get all my couples and families to watch. Her “research” showed vulnerability is the start of where all great things occur!
I first photographed Charlie when he was only a few weeks old. So when Ian and Anna asked me back to photograph Charlie again when he was nearly two…. I knew we would capture some special moments. Thanks to everyone who opens up and allows themselves to be vulnerable. Good. Things. Happen.
