Project Portrait: Day 120
Next up we have only my second group photo in over 100 portraits! But this is a very special photo for me – this is a portrait of my family. Now for people that know me, they’ll know that my family has been through a lot over the past 15 years. But despite our ups and downs, we came together last weekend. The last time we saw each other face-to-face, my two nieces and nephew weren’t around, nor my wonderful fiancee, Emily, or Elaine, my step mum. But they’ve been amazing additions to my family and it was a great privilege to bring them all together – despite the family tradition of a) resisting photos and b) making fun of my camera equipment. One of the main reasons I have loved doing this project is because it’s allowed me to spend time with people, some I knew, some I have yet to. With this photo, I got to spend a day with my family, after a long hiatus. I hope this is just one of many photos I get to create with them.
