Who remembers that beautiful vow renewal I photographed at Whananaki a few years back? This is the Carrel family again, this time for extended family session. I can honestly say I have never met a family who shows as much love and respect for each other as this one. I came away from this photo session inspired. Here are four generations of family that adore each other. The way the great grandparents looked at each other with such love, and had sneaky kisses in between shots…..whose incredible marriage that has stood strong through the test of time. Tim and Sonya, who have come through an undeniably difficult year having beaten cancer, whispered ‘I love you’ to each other while having their photographs. I know that the next two generations have had the most amazing examples of strength and courage set for them. And since this session was photographed twin girls have now been welcomed into the family. Its been a year of highs and lows, but love has kept them strong. Carrel’s, Im so honoured to have played a part in preserving your precious memories xxCarrel_family_session_2016_000.1-12.jpgCarrel_family_session_2016_000.1-27-1.jpgCarrel_family_session_2016_000.1-53.jpgCarrel_family_session_2016_000.1-55-1.jpgCarrel_family_session_2016_000.1-61.jpgCarrel_family_session_2016_000.1-63-1.jpgCarrel_family_session_2016_000.1-68.jpgCarrel_family_session_2016_000.1-82.jpg
