A few weeks ago I photographed the gorgeous N Family from North Perth. There is nothing better than doing photoshoots in the gardens of families’ own homes, especially with young children. As soon as I arrived at the N’s home I was made to feel so welcome. In no time, I was fascinated with their communication as Daddy N spoke in Spanish to the children and they responded in English! I should probably explain that Daddy is Spanish and Mummy is English. Given that my Spanish doesn’t stretch much further than what I have picked up from Dora the Explorer over the years, I was in awe of the children’s comprehension. What an incredible head start in life to be bilingual.
I came away from this shoot wanting to bring these two gorgeous children home with me. Big girl ‘I’ is such a bright spark, nothing gets past her and she is an absolute star looking after her baby brother… who just so happens to be THE best cuddler in the world. Seriously, I would happily still be snuggling with him right now.
To the N Family : Thanks for inviting me into your world and allowing me to photograph you for a couple of hours. I enjoyed every minute of it. Also, if you ever need a baby-sitter, you know where I am. This is strictly for selfish reasons you understand, so I can top up my hug-o-meter with your beautiful boy
