Recently when I was back in Australia I was able to revisit some past shoots I hadn't shared before. Kathryn is one of my closest friends and when she approached me to photograph her family I was nervous. Partly because I am a terrible self-critic and also because Khat's mother Karen was terminally ill. But as you will see from these photos Karen was very full of life, so much so that I don't think it fully registered with me that she was sick until she passed not that long after this shoot. There's a simplicty to these images but I think I really did capture this family and their love. Having lost my cousin this year well before her time I look at these photos in a whole new light.
