Tiffany & Ashiram – Yellow Haven Lodge, Kampala

“Love must be sincere.” – Romans 12:9

 

When I first met Tiffany and Ashiram, I asked how they met. They both looked at each other and laughed; neither sure where to begin. “It’s a long story” they told me…

They met on the internet. Which isn’t strange these days but their meeting was a touch unconventional. Tiffany was a blogger in the USA and Ashiram discovered her site from his home in Uganda. Ashiram loved her writing so reached out to Tiffany on Facebook to connect with her. Fast forward several months, emails and Skype calls later and Tiffany arrives in the “Pearl of Africa” to met Ashiram face-to-face for the very first time.

Within days they knew they were destined to be together.

Tiffany could only stay a few weeks but she knew she’d back. And so she returned this March to be welcomed by friends and family to her new life with Ashiram in Uganda. Happily, Tiffany’s mother and step-father were able to make the journey to see the gorgeous couple marry at Yellow Haven Lodge on the shores of Lake Victoria.

I don’t need to tell you how much love there is between these two people, I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

A day in the life – the Higginsons

The Higginsons are a very special family and I’m lucky to count them as friends. Just a few weeks ago they let me into their home to document a day in their magical lives.

Rather than spending just an hour or so capturing static poses of the family, it was so much more appropriate, (and exciting!) to spend an entire day with Chris, Georgie, Leo & India. I was there to be a ‘fly-on-the-wall’. To document a real day in their lives. No direction or posing involved.

This is the style of shooting that I love. It’s how I prefer to document a wedding, so why not do the same for a family photo shoot?

I feel Georgie describes it best:

“With nervous anticipation [of the day] – Would the kids keep their clothes on? Would Indie use the bush loo? Would Leo do his usual and ride over a dog? Could Chris and I subtly shout at each other? But it’s the beauty in the nitty gritty of every day life that Emily captured
and made us see that amongst the madness, fatigue, mum clothes, laughter, caffeine, re-repeating yourself a million times, constant eating, questioning, noise and chaos there’s a lot of love going on too!”

It was incredible to witness and capture on camera the joy and beauty that exists in this family. No fancy clothes or extraordinary occasion necessary. What’s more important than those precious memories with your family? With your kids playing, learning and growing?

Spending the day with the Higginsons, from early in the morning when sleepy heads looked out from morning snuggles to night time stories tucked up in bed, was a complete joy and totally hilarious. I wondered if the kids would be put off by my presence and my camera but Leo and Indie went about their day as usual. It featured lots of eating, bikes, piles of sand, guinea pigs, cupcakes, hiding from storms, umbrellas, struggles to get into clothes, lots of taking off of clothes, lego, and a whole lot of laughter.

Thank you so much to Chris, Georgie, Leo and Indie for letting me capture your day! I look forward to seeing how things have changed when we do it again next year and I can’t wait to hang out again at your amazing lodge soon!


Yea! Special offer time! To celebrate these new family photo shoots, I am offering a huge 50% discount for the first three families that book a full ‘day in the life shoot’!
