Last month I was invited to photograph the Fletchers in their home. I joined these guys at a very special time in their lives - they were all but finished their house renovations and extension, a two year project that started as soon as they moved in. They finally have their dream home. Alex who was just about to start school, and Oliver (Ollie) who in no time at all had gone from a very smiley baby, to a very smiley toddler filled with independence. It was a honour to be invited into this moment.
Clare, Davie, their gorgeous daughter Orlaith, and I met at Hopetoun House for a planned family photo session. Typically, the weather was unpredictable - with a forecast to be cloudy all day, but what turned out to be a scorcher of a day. I think we all left, both, a little redder than we had intended, and very sceptical of the iPhone weather app.
It was my first time walking around the grounds of Hopetoun House and I was pleasantly surprised by just how beautiful they were and hope much time we spent there. It was a delight. I would recommend them to anyone.
