I loved shooting this family portrait for my friend Jess Cole and her little boy Austin - and Jess's family wouldn't be complete without her two dogs. Some folks know Jess from seeing her in at The HPH tucked away writing in her notebook, others have been served by her at Chez Lucien, or maybe you've seen her play around town with her music. I got to know Jess a little when I photographed her for my Faces of WellingtonEnd series where I was taken by her genuineness and straight-forward positive spirit. Although I don't shoot many, I just love how a family portrait captures a moment in time in a family's history - frozen in time forever. As a photographer is always an honour to be asked to photograph a family portrait, for Christmas or otherwise and regardless what shape or size that family is. Thanks Jess for the opportunity!
