I have a real soft spot for this family. Many moons ago when I was relatively new to photography, Nik and Pip put their faith in me and asked me to photograph their gorgeous cliff-top wedding at Church Farm, so I’ll always be grateful to them for that. Earlier this year they asked me to meet up with them again at their home by the sea to take some pictures of them and their gorgeous little boy, Howie.
It sounds cliché, but it really is such a joy to follow a couple on their journey as they marry and build a home for their new family. Spending an hour or so with Pip & Nik it’s clear to see how important it is for them to create a warm and happy environment for their son in which he can grow and thrive. I really wanted to try and capture some of the magic of this family of three in a short series of everyday moments, which is even more poignant since I was thrilled to learn recently they are now a family of four!
