I was thrilled when Katherine asked me to photograph her and her family. They have a longstanding tradition of documenting their life this way, but this is the first time I had the opportunity to capture them. I know them personally, and got to know them even better at the shoot. Such a lovely family, so full of warmth, so welcoming and also full of humour. I have to admit to being super excited for this shoot because all three are very stylish and I kind of dig editorial type shoots. They’re obviously old hands at this, or it comes very naturally as I didn’t need to pose them at all.
The shoes. As a parent I loved the story about the shoes. They said “can you take a picture of our shoes?” Of course I could. The reason being is that when Deven was a child, his feet were obviously so much smaller and they captured their feet as the years passed. Now, he is a man, and quite obviously his foot growth has surpassed that of his Mom’s. I think to mark the passage of time and growth in this life is a beautiful thing. The point being that they have both grown together, and no matter how much physical growth.. a Mom is always a Mom, and the child is always her baby. And so, for him a new adventure begins, a new and exciting chapter in his life, I wish him the best.
