After asking for an updated family photo for quite a while, a gift voucher for a family photo session was waiting under the Christmas tree for this lovely Mum and Grandma. Her daughter had even prearranged a date and time with all her siblings signed up to be there.
It was a wonderfully relaxed photo session, with laughs and teasing between them. We ran through the combinations of couples and groups then returned inside where there were mimosas scones with jam and cream to tide everyone over until the full hot breakfast was ready.
You could just sense how much Mum enjoyed having all her loved ones back home, gathered in the kitchen. With my little one being only 1 year old I have a while to wait, but standing there watching them together I kept thinking I want to have this one day. That feeling of home. Of welcoming and gathering and producing something together. Complete with misosas.
