As a family, David and Alissa always want family photos. The trick for them is finding someone with a trained eye, that can see everyone there. They have two lovely boys, Harry (Henry, actually, but known as Harry) and Archer, otherwise known as Arch or Archie. Archie is just one month old. This is a special time welcoming the new baby to the family. David and Alissa opted to have their photo session at home, the central place where they currently all come together. A beautiful day beckoned us into their backyard.
This is their 2011 Family Story.

Some final adjustments.
A lovely, gentle kiss for Archer.
Motherhood agrees with Alissa.
As David says, ‘we’re very lucky.’

Breathing in that beautiful baby smell.
The constantly evolving backyard.
Harry loves the soft chickens.
A quiet feed outside on a Spring day … perfection.
So tiny, so precious.
In loving, safe hands.

Alissa distinctly remembers the drive to the hospital.
The morning was just gorgeous, the sun was breaking through the clouds.
Archer was born in the bath, and David caught him!
Hurricane Harry just blew in!
Harry loves to explore and discover.
David can see the man in Harry … for now, a little cutie.
Harry is completely absorbed in his discovery.

… for Mum!

One of about twenty lemons that Harry picked.
Harry continually surprises and intrigues David.
An armful of baby and lemons!
Archer’s eye is like an artist’s paint stroke.
Busy and beautiful in the veggie patch.
Alissa’s soft hair as it moves in the breeze.
The sneaky thief.

That’s Archer before we met him.
When you start seeing a head, body and legs, it really does bring it home.

Special time with Mumma.
Shall we go for a walk, Harry?
Special hats are on.
Harry will fall asleep on our walk.
It’s a beautiful day today.

A beautiful, sensitive collection that captures many special moments of this lucky family in photographs. It will showcase in their gorgeous book and be accompanied by two stunning wall art pieces. Thank you Alissa, David, Harry and Archer for sharing this very special time in your lives with me.
