This 1970’s goddess and her little explorers Lenni & Van sent happy vibes all through me as we ventured around the Sandbar Camping Ground just south of Forester. There was a Summer vibe in the air, a little breeze & the sound of wildlife around us. It was all I could wish for in a shoot, so I was pumped!

Alex is an adventurer. They often go on family camping trips together in their 1970’s caravan and sometimes it’s just her and the kiddies. She wanted me to show this moment through the images so Lenni & Van could look back on these times as they grow older. Alex enjoys the little things in life, she LOVES her kids SOOOO much, those moments of skin on skin as they cuddle up against her, she loves the ocean and fresh air and at night snuggling up in the caravan as a family when it’s quiet and dark. She is patient and kind, she’s an inspiration of the kind of Mother I would love to be one day.

I will be forever grateful that I got to do this shoot. I was so lucky I was road tripping up and down the East Coast so I could do this motherhood session and create this memory for her. Alex is also an incredible photographer so my heart exploded with excitement that she wanted me to do this for her. If you haven’t checked out her work you must, Alex Warden Photography!!
