Sometimes people ask me why I photograph the bits of a baby...the tiny details, not their actual 'bits'...that would be very weird. And I think maybe it's often the baby's grandad who asks me. And usually I answer quickly and get on with what I'm doing.

But what I really want to say is this: "I have three gorgeous, big kids, teenagers or almost teenagers now and I remember when they were this small. I remember staring at their tiny hands in mine, stroking their fuzzy little heads, marvelling at their perfect fingernails and eyelashes...and I remember wondering how on earth I had been lucky enough to be a part of creating something so amazing. And I take these pictures because of these memories and these feelings."

Which might be more information than the baby's grandad was expecting.  But it's true.

This is some of the wonderfulness that is Mikaere...

When I photograph families I'm always trying to create something that will evoke memories of a point in time...the older I get (haha!) the more I realise that we don't always remember the things that we think we will remember. Those cute things the kids used to say and do...the games they played, the things that cracked them up...they slip away. And what I really want to do is make a lasting record of some of that stuff so that later on you can look back at it together and remember. In the studio it's all about the family and how you interact your own places there's an extra layer. This is a slideshow from a shoot I was lucky enough to do with the Mawdsley family in their beautiful home and in the favourite'll see what I mean...
