One of the great things about being a photographer is that it's so easy for me to take photos of my family. Batteries are charged, memory cards are empty, lenses are clean and my gear is always close to hand.
Thunderbirds are go.
I have so many images of my boys, maybe too many! It's the most natural thing in the world to pick up my camera and document our lives as and when I'm in the mood (which is often).
The boys have to put up with me lugging my camera everywhere, poor things. It's a huge investment of time and effort but it does mean that as a family we have a wonderful bank of memories from over the years.
It also means that unless I book someone to take pictures of us, I am rarely in the photographs.
I am the ghost that was never there (read: behind the lens).
I always talk a lot to my clients about what it means to have a family legacy, and why it's so important not only to take photographs, to print photographs, but also to make sure that we are in the photographs ourselves. What a gift that is to give to our children.
Are you the photographer in your family?
