THE LEE FAMILY | Paris, France

You might remember the Lee Family from two years ago. We travelled to Taiwan to document their family vacation to Sun Moon Lake when Esme was a feisty 2 year old and Flynn was a sleepy newborn. We were supposed to meet up with them again last year at Disney World, but unfortunately their trip was cancelled at the last minute so we missed the opportunity to photograph them there (side note, this might have been for the best as I was freshly pregnant with our daughter Charlie and let’s just say the Happiest Place on Earth was the “Puke-iest” place on earth for me!)

This time, we met up in Paris, one of our favourite cities, and we got to be the translators for a change! While the kids have grown significantly, a lot has remained the same: good appetites (I cannot get enough of watching Esme eat!), followed closely by food-comas, diaper changes on the go, tons of personality, and the occasional meltdown of course (Flynn’s turn now!).

While we love photographing weddings, there is something so incredibly special about documenting a family vacation. Travelling with our own kids is one of our greatest joys in life and being there to document the experience for another family is just so special. I love the idea that Esme and Flynn looking through these photo albums years in the future, looking back on experiences that shaped them despite not having any memories of. I just hope that our images can allow them to see how sweet and spirited and hilarious they are, and how loved they are by their parents.

We are excited to keep this tradition going and look forward to many more trips with the Lee Family!

    Great history! Is gratifying when the bride and groom invite you to continue being a part of their life.

    Lo he vuelto a ver en pantalla grande. Cuanto mas lo veo mas me sorprendo. Despues de este excelso, insuperable y casi divino reportaje, pasaran decades para que alguien ( o ellos mismos) lo puedan superar. Con este reportaje Han demostrado que son los mejores del Planeta fotografiando a niños en el gran París de La France.
