Advent Countdown #2 – The Travis Family

The second instalment in my Advent Countdown is….

The Travis family – featuring 3 of my favourite people in the world: gorgeous Marie-Claire and her two boys, Jacques and Zavier. A little slap on the wrist for me but it was almost a year ago to the day that we did this shoot. :-O However, I remember it so fondly. First of all, Marie-Claire is so beautiful and I couldn’t wait to photograph her. Secondly, she has a gorgeous old vintage Rocking Horse so I was buzzing to use that in the shoot. Thirdly, Jacques is one of my William’s best friends so I brought my two kidlets and hubby along too. After the formal shoot, whilst MC was making us some lovely lunch, I shot some more of all the kids, resulting in some of my favourite photographs ever! After lunch, we all went to Burgess Hill to meet the Once Upon A Magical Time Princesses and watch them turn on the Christmas lights! So all in all, a fab Christmassy day with great friends!

“They are divine, beautiful and so natural. You certainly have a gift!”
