As part of the littleBIG project I am so delighted to be photographing the Hawking family for the entire year, one session each month. I simply adore these people, for many reasons! They are loud and real and normal, living life with a great deal of humor (something I am still learning, and it’s painful at times). Michelle has single-handedly given my business a major boost when I started out in photography, and I love her for it! The kids are simply adorable, and it’s been wonderful to watch them grow (and multiply). As for Ray, I am quietly in awe of how nothing is ever a drama for this man! Hawkings, you are my kind of people! One would think you are completely crazy, and let’s face – it’s probably true. 🙂 Wuv you wwwooong time and bring on the ice-creams!
