I met this daddy in Sheffield at a gig once. We were both taking photos and I ran out of space on my card. He was very kind and offered to store my images on his portable drive with the promise of delivering them to me later that week. I thought he was a kind looking soul and trusted him, so found myself freeing my CF card of all it’s data and having space to take more. This was pre-SLR days when I was taking a picture-a-day with my little Casio Elixim. Way before children entered either of our lives. Fast forward 6 years or so and we have both had babies and we are both working photographers.
As I was bridesmaid and photographer for the wedding that is the post before this one. I called my friend Dave and proposed a photographic trade off. He takes the pictures at the wedding that I need to be in – namely, ceremony and formal images – in exchange for a family photoshoot for him and his gorgeous family. There are already many many beautiful images of this handsome little fella, but perhaps not so many of everyone together and certainly even fewer that weren’t taken with the camera sat atop a tripod. So, here are a few of the images I took for them in the lovely Wenken Park in Sheffield. A park I used to like to go and read/relax/frisbee in when I was a student at the University of Sheffield.
It was a lovely warm day – perhaps even a little too sunny, but still, this charmer was all smiles:

Great to see you all again and I look forward to the next time already!
