Harry’s journey so far… 0-5 years years old.

Harry turned 5 last week and now he’s at school it gave me a bit of time to reflect on the last 5 years, including looking at all the photos of him I’ve taken over this time (hundreds!!).  I can honestly say the whole experience of having Harry just got better and better.   I wasn’t one of those mums cooing over their newborns – well of course I did, but the real blasts of love came later for me, when he started smiling, crawling and especially walking: suddenly he was my little buddy and we would go and walk through Highgate Woods to the playground and to the shops… and suddenly things seemed a little easier… Then the talking, and oh my, so many hilarious moments, phrases and jokes.   I can’t even put into words how much I love this boy, how happy he makes me and how brilliant he is.

Here’s Harry’s journey so far.  In some ways his journey mirrors my own photography journey. We’ve grown together…

Oh what a lovely post! I too have one boy who is 5 and also began my photography journey with him so I totally get this! I’m inspired to create my own version now! You’ve captured some gorgeous images here which I’m sure he will treasure in years to come. This emotional connection is what I LOVE about photography. What a beautiful tribute to your son and the bond you share.
