We worked in the areas that we could and enjoyed the most amazing light. The colour palette of Gemma’s house is bold and vivid and provided me the most amazing backdrop, complimented by sun flares, laughter and love.
The kitchen is more neutral yet makes a huge statement. It’s welcoming, homely, practical yet grand. But what struck me most is that it is all very sympathetic to the age of the house and the materials and design are of the highest quality.
As you will see from this amazing gallery, the light was sublime, the boys were joyous and we got to celebrate the excitement of Christmas and their new incredible kitchen. It was also the day the boys were going to choose their Christmas tree, so I hope this day will be locked in the little memory banks for many reasons. It’s all for them after all.
And if you look closely you’ll even be able to spot the boys Elf on the Shelf. I can’t wait to see the rest of the house once it’s finished. One of my favourite images from this gallery is the family relaxing in the playroom on the orange sofa, the sun flares dancing around them, echoing the coloured balls in the wonderful image of the elephants behind them.
Interestingly, when Gemma booked her shoot, she told me she had been meaning to book for so long that she instantly felt relieved once we had got her shoot date locked in the diary. I can really relate to this, in our busy family lives of to do lists and planning, it can sometimes feel like the last priority.
I promised Gemma she would never ever regret capturing her family memories and when I bumped into after the shoot she happily told me she loved the whole process and was thrilled she had had her family photographed. Of course I know she would be but actually hearing it from a client gives me such happy vibes. Creating lasting family memories for people is what brings me real joy.
