Over the years, my dear friend Miyoko and I have written to one another by mail. Finding her envelopes and cards all the way from Tokyo in my humble letter box in Fairfield was always unexpected and never failed to make my day. Although we are separated by oceans, we've shared many chapters together from the daily grind, to graduations, holidays, the loss of loved ones and our respective marriages.
What an honour it was to capture a snippet of her own family of three from cuddles in bed to cuddles by the sea. Miyoko wanted her sons first visit to the beach in Australia documented and we made plans for sunset during golden hour. I loved how the photos developed, the connection and love reminds me of why I love photographing. I know the Ichinoses will look back fondly on these moments too.
Please do send through a message if you'd like me to document a snippet of your family life too, I can’t wait to document more giggles and cuddles for you.
