You know, there’s something pretty darned awesome about being able to say, “Yeah, I made that with my own two hands.” Usually I say this about meals or desserts I cook, but I’ve never been able to say that about a piece of furniture (even assembled ones from IKEA, as He-Pobke is the master of that domain).
Well. See THEIR WHOLE ENTIRE HOUSE? Yeah. Alistair made that. With his own two hands.
I first met Susan and Ally three years ago when I photographed their beautiful wedding out at Grazing (which, ahem, Ally built). So when they booked me in for their family photography session, I was thrilled and over the moon because (a) they’re an awesome couple; (b) I love photographing families; and (c) it’s always an honour to be called on again to document couples as their family grows and expands.
Ally and Susan, thanks again for being such game subjects. “Lay down in that snake-ridden field!” “Sure!!” I mean really, you guys are a dream to photograph but more so because of your positive, laid back attitude when it comes to my suggestions. Thank you for having me around and spoiling me with delicious biscuits and coffee and adorable, wonderful, squishy L cuddles. I can’t wait to photograph you again in the (hopefully) not so distant future, where I can shoot more things Ally made! :)
