I truly believe that there is a reason people come into our lives. We might not ever get to know what that reason is - but I do believe there is a reason for sure.

I was delighted when this sweet family got in touch with me. They wanted me to capture this special time in their lives when the boys were oh-so-perfect in age. The family chose The Birmingham Botanical Gardens in Edgbaston as their location. There really couldn’t have been a better location for them. There were flowers blooming, spring was in the air - we saw roses, tulips, daffodils - you name it and it was there. To add to the perfectness of the location - there were even a couple of peacocks that joined us on our shoot! Bliss!

The weather was challenging to say the least though. Within the space of an hour it seemed we saw it all - harsh sunlight, rain and hail!

Even then, the weather couldn’t dampen their spirits! They all had so much fun! It was clear that this family deeply cared for each other and they genuinely enjoyed each other’s companies. The boys were a delight! Dads were so good with these two that it literally broke my heart when I finally had to say bye to them! :)

I am so thankful that I got to meet them. Photography allows me to meet these beautiful people and for that I couldn’t be more grateful!

Hope you all had a great half term! Thanks for being here! x
