Lou is a really great photographer. And a really great Mum.
She has an amazing family. Sunny and Scout are two of the coolest kids you will ever meet. They live in this big, old, beautiful home. It's full of the things I love to photograph:
Mums, Dads, kids, family and love.
I was speaking to Lou about the impact it has on me when photographers ask me to take photos for them. For me, it's a really big deal. Like everyone, I have issues of doubt. Doubt about my photos and the technical side of photography. 'Am I as good as this guy, or heck, am I as good as I can be?'.
When I see the images laid out like this though, my worries leave me and I just feel the love. Exposures and f-stops become irrelevant. I think about Lou and Jacob, and Sunny and Scout. I think about them in their home in Sale, with its enormous floorboards. I think about Sunny painting on her easel and the games of hide and seek that really happened - not just because I was there.
I think about family. I think about how soon, this will be Kesh and me. And I think about how soon it won't just be the two of us. Soon, there will be three.
