Hearing that makes me really glad that I've taken thousands of family pics going back to when Michael Jackson was still black, the Soviet Union still existed, hair was big and Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet were topping the charts.....mobile phones were the size of breezeblocks and nobody had one apart from Michael Douglas in 'Wall Street'. I'm also glad that I've always applied the same standards to photographing my family as I do to landscapes, architecture etc [thankyou Emmet Gowin, Harry Callahan, Nicholas Nixon and Sally Mann].

That is one of those photos that some or all the people in the photo will keep for as long as they all remain close. You did a great job there.

So glad you've posted something on this. Im constantly told as a student that my family portraits need to have a "deeper meaning" its refreshing to see you've created a project purely on making memories and documenting the kids.
