I remember the family photography session I did with Ron and Lauren when she was pregnant with Phoenix. Lauren really came to the party on that one…brought a whole collection of props and ideas. We made our way to the botanical gardens of Pietermaritzburg, and had a quality time.
A little over a year later, the Barbours again invited me into their lives to celebrate the little man’s first birthday. I spent some time with the extended family, and then had the opportunity to spend quality time with Mum, Dad and Phoenix…the little family of Superheroes. It was a gem of a day.
Phoenix Barbour is now an entire two years old. Two years. My word. Since then their little family has grown into a not so little family with the arrival of Juniper. I was bummed not being able to do another maternity shoot with them due to being abroad. Who knows, maybe I’ll get to shoot the bigger Barbour clan again…
This post goes out to you, the Barbours. God’s people. Salt of the earth people.
