Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful Huddleston family. We started at Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens but it must have been one of the busiest Sunday's of the calendar year with a Colours of Autumn Walk happening plus it was a very harsh sunny day (unfortunately I don't get to choose the weather!). With those two factors working against us and a toddler who is very distracted by the great outdoors, we got a few photos then decided it would be best to change location and go to the Huddleston's home in Crafers. That proved to be a good move and with some very entertaining jumping around and pretending to be a number of different animals, my husband did a great job of getting Thomas' attention and making him smile. I took the opportunity to get some photos of Adam and Lara together along with some lovely profile photos of each of them.
Not only are the Huddleston's fantastic clients but they are also dear family friends. Being given the honour of capturing these photos means a lot to me as Lara has been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. Making memories for her husband and 19 month old son are the most important thing for her right now and I'm so glad I can contribute through photos. They are currently trying to raise enough money to help with medical costs and equipment including a van for her electric wheelchair (it is very difficult for her to access disability transport living in the hills), and also leaving valuable memories behind for her family members.
