anne’s 60th birthday present

I photographed Liz and Pete’s lovely wedding donkeys of years ago in Yorkshire, and I’ve watched their family grow (first Bea and then Nuala arrived recently.)  So I was chuffed to bits to be commissioned to go down to Shropshire to capture them with Liz’s brothers, their partners, children, and most importantly their parents, for Mum’s birthday.

What a wonderful idea for a birthday present to have your family documented, enjoying themselves on holiday with you, at a gorgeous farmhouse in the country.

I hope you enjoy the images, I think it was a lovely present and it was fantastic to see how the next generation are coming along. However, I forgot how bonkers some members of the family are… and how it is organised chaos trying to gather everyone together for a big Johnson family photograph!anne johnson birthday 2014-62anne johnson birthday 2014-17anne johnson birthday 2014-19anne johnson birthday 2014-27anne johnson birthday 2014-34anne johnson birthday 2014-38anne johnson birthday 2014-48anne johnson birthday 2014-53anne johnson birthday 2014-55anne johnson birthday 2014-59anne johnson birthday 2014-61anne johnson birthday 2014-63anne johnson birthday 2014-65anne johnson birthday 2014-68anne johnson birthday 2014-77anne johnson birthday 2014-79anne johnson birthday 2014-80anne johnson birthday 2014-83anne johnson birthday 2014-86anne johnson birthday 2014-84anne johnson birthday 2014-89anne johnson birthday 2014-92anne johnson birthday 2014-93anne johnson birthday 2014-95anne johnson birthday 2014-97anne johnson birthday 2014-105anne johnson birthday 2014-107anne johnson birthday 2014-112anne johnson birthday 2014-114anne johnson birthday 2014-115anne johnson birthday 2014-117anne johnson birthday 2014-120anne johnson birthday 2014-121anne johnson birthday 2014-122anne johnson birthday 2014-124anne johnson birthday 2014-126anne johnson birthday 2014-127anne johnson birthday 2014-130anne johnson birthday 2014-132anne johnson birthday 2014-134anne johnson birthday 2014-137anne johnson birthday 2014-139anne johnson birthday 2014-147anne johnson birthday 2014-148anne johnson birthday 2014-159anne johnson birthday 2014-150anne johnson birthday 2014-153anne johnson birthday 2014-158anne johnson birthday 2014-160anne johnson birthday 2014-156anne johnson birthday 2014-162
