This is my friend Sam and her two children, Mylie and Zach.
We often all go to RHS Wisley Gardens as it’s a great place for me to teach Sam photography and there’s just loads for the children to do!
We also have a long-term portrait photography project on the go and this photo is a part of that.
For several years now I’ve been taking pictures of Sam, first with just Mylie and later also with Zach on this one bridge over the pond, by the meadow.
It’s a lovely way to watch the family grow alongside the changing seasons, plants and colours at the gardens.
I really hope that the children will come to treasure this collection of pictures. Also, that when they get into their teens and beyond they’ll still want to come to Wisley and carry on the tradition.
