How do you like to spend time with your family? For us in Queensland, we're quickly moving from our mild winter into summer, barely passing for spring. Families are heading back outdoors as our days become longer and warmer, backyard pools are being put to good use again and local parks are quickly filling with long, lazy picnic lunches with loved ones, Frisbee and cricket bat in hand. Others are heading straight to the beach to splash away their working week, nap in the sunshine and fill their cars with endless sand on their drive back home.
But before our hot, humid summer overwhelms us, I'm cherishing the last of my snuggly winter family sessions with a family who holds a special place in my heart. Friends made by our mutual love of a beautifully framed piece of art as much as a good chin wag. Life-long friends made while we waited patiently for our sons together, born only weeks apart, coupled with a not-so-secret adoration of Wednesday nights in front of the television for a fabulous Australian drama, watching it 'together' phones in hand for the entire glorious hour. It's a match made in friendship heaven.
Our collaboration on their family photographs is always been a joy. We simply play, cuddle up and read books in their home, and seemingly far too easily, this beauty is our result. I always walk out of their front door anxious to play, cuddle up and read books with my little family. It's such a gift that they return to me each time.
