Presenting… a little bundle of beauty to put a smile on your face ready for the weekend! I challenge ANYONE not to completely fall in love with little Marni – she is one of the most scrumptious little dudes ever. That face! She’s so expressive, funny, lively, affectionate, friendly and adventurous – I absolutely LOVED doing this shoot – the only downside was that I couldn’t take her away with me! (Although I did get one opportunity to do a runner with her – the last few shots of Lisa and Paul on their own were taken one-handed with Marni on my left hip!)
Another huge plus side to this shoot was that I finally got to meet the gorgeous Lisa of Lisa Devine Photography – aka mum to Marni! Lisa has been so positive and encouraging about my photography since the really early days and I’m so grateful for this support – we’ve only ever spoken via Facebook, twitter & email so it was great to finally put a face to the name! It’s such a big compliment when another photographer wants you to take photos for them, and Lisa is so talented (make sure you check out her work!) so it really did mean a lot that she wanted me to take these. She was every bit as nice as I expected and more.
Along with her lovely husband (and doting dad of Marni!) Paul we all spent a really fun hour traipsing around Castlefield in the sunshine. They are such a happy family, full of smiles and so easy and fun to spend time with. A perfect way to spend a sunny Manchester afternoon, thanks so much Lisa, Paul and Marni for sharing a little slice of your life with me!
