Meet the Monro family. Oh, and The Other Guy. Wendy & Claud live in a small town about 20 minutes or so from my small town. Their oldest daughter, Ella, lives across the pond, as does her boyfriend, The Other Guy (his family & friends call him Jacob, I'm sure).
Can you tell they're enjoying their time together? I am realizing now that I picked mostly goofy pictures for this Sneak Peek. But then again, I also picked way more than I was going to. I guess I was swept away by it all. I had such a great time with these guys. It's one of the things I love the most about being a Photographer. Not just the taking pictures and editing and producing products part. Nope. It's the people. I love people and talking with them. Hearing their stories and seeing how they interact with each other. Finding out what it means to them to be a family. Dear Daphne insisted that I stay for supper. After some inner debating as to whether it was politeness or obligation or sincerity and all that other mumbo jumbo I put myself through, I stayed. I had Pimm's for the first time with fresh berries and herbs straight from the garden. I had homemade onion rings. Indian potatoes. Steak. But most of all, I had a wonderful time.
Sure it was still blasted hot outside. Very uncomfortable at times. But then the burst of cool air when we came inside accompanied by a cold beer....totally worth it. Ella & Daphne jumped off the dock for their last shots. Don't you love it? Sisterly love.
I'm so, so happy that I was able to photograph them and spend a few hours together. I can't wait until we can do it all again.
