Lights at sunrise

Last month I put a photo shoot up for auction to support a wonderful cause, Lights for Harrison (you can read more about it here).  Jane was the happy winning bidder, and I met her beautiful family at the beach for their portraits, on a perfect morning just after sunrise.  I am reminded why I adore photography after shoots like this, when it feels more like spending time with friends than working.  It was a pleasure to meet you Jane, Nick, Thomas & Charlotte, and I hope you enjoy the photos!  M x

    Oh Mel these are beautiful. I thought they were all wonderful until I got to the photo of Jane (great name!) hugging her son. That’s when I started tearing up thinking of my little boy growing up like that and being about to rest my chin on his head.

    Stunning! I bet they will treasure these.

    Oh Mel, where to start! I love, love, love this series; the light, the colours and your framing. Just stunning! They couldn’t help but adore these. We can chat about a shoot for Sunny, the girls and I at brunch :))
