My lovely friend Marisa contacted me to do some photos of her and her brother’s family as a present for their mum and dad’s wedding anniversary. So I headed AAAAALL the way up the road to the beautiful, leafy, suburbs of Marple, where we relaxed over a scrummy bbq and then strolled down by the peaceful, picturesque canal, to Marple Park.
Marisa and Jason had not long had a special addition to the family who goes by the name of Hattie and oh my goodness, what an utterly gorgeous cherub she is. Legend has it that baby Hattie has lungs that could scare off an army but I refuse to believe a word of it. She is the most and placid baba in town but I have been around enough babies to know that there’s playful devilment behind those big brown eyes – I just wonder who she has got that from? Her mum and dad are just besotted and I genuinely beam inside when I see how happy they are.
Marisa’s brother and family joined us that day too – Luke, Paula and their fabulous teenage kids, Freya and Isaac. From behind my camera I spent a lot of my time wondering how Luke and Paula managed to raise two teenagers who were so sedate, and well-mannered and just…completely pleasant to each other! Even to this day when I go home to Ireland to my mum’s, my younger brother and I spend most of our time trying to wind each other up in petty ways, stealing the optimum tv viewing chair, hiding controls, a bit of childish banter when mum leaves the room… but Freya and Isaac were… mature, kind and even thoughtful towards one another! Not a sign of a sneaky nip all day?!
As always, I had a great time hanging out with the Logan-Wards and want to thank them for asking me to do the shoot. The best compliment of all was from Marisa’s mum, Ros, when I saw her a few weeks later at a wedding I was photographing (blog to follow in a few days!) and she told me the photos were the best present she could have had and they brought a tear to her eye when she saw them.
Thanks again, Logan – Wards. See you soon!
