Love | Melbourne Family Photographer

Posted on June 7, 2012

To me, family photography is all about capturing love.  Love between partners, parents & their children, siblings, extended families.  That incredible, heart-bursting, I-never-knew-love-like-this-existed love between a mother and her newborn baby.  That I-might-push-you-around-but-anyone-else-that-touches-you-is-gonna-get-it love between a big brother & his little sister.  Love is everywhere, and it’s what makes being a photographer so incredible.  I’d have to disagree with Lennon/McCartney in that it’s definitely not all you need, but it’s at the top of the list, for sure.

And then there is the kind of love that is a little rarer.  Love that has spanned six decades, four children, more grandchildren, and even more great-grandchildren.

Below are two images of my daughter’s great-grandparents at their 60th wedding anniversary celebrations.  Sixty years of marriage and still so very much in love.  They are an absolute inspiration, and to see them together makes my heart smile.  Big.
