2016 was a very fun year for me. Not only did i get to photograph some amazing people, i managed to capture some special moments for my own family.
I don't get to see my second family very often as they live so, so far away. Annie & I have been best friends for around 20 years and we bonded over a love of Queen and WWE! Yes, you read that correctly, i'm a Rock & Roll wrestling geek!! We wrote each other letters until we progressed with technology.. emails, text and Facebook Messenger came next! During the years we have both moved on to happier times with the loves of our lives, had many ups and downs and brought many kiddos into this world.
Annie, Kenny, Jack, Ollie & JJ were excited to tell me that there was another little Shawyer on the way, unfortunately he grew his wings and we never got to know him. Then as the picture says..
A Rainbow is a promise of sunshine after rain, of calm after storms; of joy after sadness, of peace after pain, of love after loss.
I had the pleasure of photographing the pregnancy announcement and we sneakily did the gender reveal at the same time!
Baby Finn arrived in September of 2016 and we travelled 9 hours, yes, that's 9 long slow dreary traffic heavy hours that were totally worth it because ... well, THIS...
Finn is doing really well and Steve & I are going to be Godparents! I can't wait to get down to see them all again, or for them to make their way up here by the seaside.
Yup, defo a fav of 2016 x
