On this particular blustery day, I met Michelle and her husband Rob in Didcot, Oxfordshire at the Wittenham Clumps– two hills that tower high above the otherwise flat landscape. This location soon became dear to all our hearts. Not only was it the location of Rob’s proposal to Michelle nearly a decade before, but it now marked the start of a new season for them preparing to bring a new life into the world!
Photographing Michelle and Rob was so easy it almost took me off guard! Michelle was practically running up the hill even though she was 8 months pregnant and Rob continuously beamed with love and pride for his wife. I gave little direction on this shoot. These two were so natural and loveable straight from the start!
Moments like this make me pause and be truly thankful for being able to photograph such stepping stones in people’s lives. Michelle and Rob could have chosen anyone to document this precious moment in their life but they chose me and I am forever thankful for that trust.
I hope you enjoy your photographs Michelle and Rob and cherish them for many years to come! All happiness and blessings to you and your family on this exciting adventure you are on together.
