I had a lovely time with this gorgeous family. Marielle & Rob are mum and dad to Kyle, David & William. They are certainly a mix of personalities as these photographs will illustrate! Though the weather was NOT on our side and the rain clouds kept drifting over us, we had a great shoot.
Not one of my sessions are the same and I always leave carrying something new, whether it be something that I’ve learnt or the emotional impact from the people that I have met. I am lucky that my job allows me to meet and mingle with all sorts of people.
This is a beautiful and strong family. Wills, the youngest, is the strongest three year old you’ll ever meet. He has a rare syndrome called Perisylvian Polymircogria, Cerbal Palsy and Epilepsy. Despite his illness, he is the most adventurous, courageous and loving little soul you could meet.
Though Wills was unsure of me at first, it didn’t take him long to warm up and to welcome me into his world. He touched my heart.
Whether he was in the embrace of mum or dad, crawling or bobbing up and down on the ground, Wills exuded this infectious energy. He has come so far in his short life and I know that he so much fight in him and so much further to go.
I had a really fun time chasing after Wills and David. David is the funniest little fellow. I don’t why, but he decided that he had to smile like a chipmunk or strike a pose in almost every photo. I hope that this four year old, brings you a smile as it has done for me.
Thank you for sharing your story with me. You have a beautiful family and I wish you all the best. xoxo
