I am sooo excited to be sharing this one!
Elliesha booked me in for a family shoot in May to coincide with my holiday in the UK.
We booked the session online so I never got to meet them or even speak on the phone. Now this is something I don’t usually recommend when you’re booking a photographer, but because we were separated halfway across the globe there wasn’t much we could do.
I timed my trip to be in Horsham the day of the shoot but when we arrived at the main train station, I realised we had no way to get to their place and the next bus was an hour away! At that moment, we were running late so we just jumped in a taxi and showed the cabbie where we were supposed to go. Needless to say, we had no idea where he was driving us.
Seven minutes later, we arrived at a beautiful neighbourhood, walked up to the front door of Elliesha’s home and knocked.
It was Ben who greeted us and we were welcomed in like old friends. We got to meet Elliesha as well as their kids Eli, and Paisley, the new addition.
Ben and Elliesha met while in the US and they were running a youth camp together. That was the start of a beautiful friendship and their relationship developed from there. When Ben came back to the UK, Elliesha followed. Soon after they were married and settled in Horsham to start a family.
I was suffering bad with hayfever that day but despite the teary eyes and running nose, we had a great time. Eli and Paisley were awesome kids and we had a ball playing crazy games with them.
Elliesha & Ben, you have an amazing family. You guys just ooze joy and laughter out of every pore! It was a real blessing to be there witnessing and capturing every moment. Thank you for welcoming us in, and say hi to Eli & Paisley for us!
