Its been a while since I had the pleasure of photographing a family with teenage children. It really made me realise the value of capturing a family at every stage. How precious those last few years are before they leave home to forge their own paths… And in this family that’s exactly what Maddy (the eldest) is about to do. She is leaving NZ to spend her final year of high school study in America. These photographs will be treasured as a memory of their final times together as a family. And we had so much fun, they had me laughing behind the camera so much I had tears rolling down my cheeks! Here’s a little selection from their shoot xx
