Friends forever!

Group photo sessions are so much fun!

We moved to Wales in January 2005 and apart from my sister in law and family, we didn't know anyone. When I was pregnant with my daughter we duly joined the local NCT group with great trepidation. My husband and I are fairly quiet (until you get to know us!), so group meetings with a bunch of strangers in a Church hall wasn't our idea of fun but boy, I'm glad we went. The friends that we met there are our great friends now (more like family if you ask me) and our children have grown up together. We've seen them on every birthday, every Christmas, countless sleepovers and more playdates than you can shake a stick at.

The NCT group were my first ever photography clients and I've been photographing them ever since. As they grow older I'm trying to capture the milestones, turning 10 in 2015, going up to comprehensive in 2017, becoming teenagers this year etc.

Have a look below and see how they have grown from babies to teenagers. I'd love to do some more group photo sessions like this!
