Little Eco Footprints – Hunter Valley family photos

I’ve known Tricia and her beautiful family for several years now, and I’m jealous of the new direction her life has taken, even as my rational brain tells me I couldn’t hack it.  Tricia writes a column for The Newcastle Herald and has a beautiful blog about learning to live better with less, called Little Eco Footprints.

I asked Tricia if I could document part of a day in their life; it was wonderful. To see a family living with such care was a real treat, and watching Little Eco play was like a window into my own childhood, a jumble of adventure and incidental science and exploration.

You should include Little Eco Footprints into your regular blog reading – it’s a fantastic source of information and is a great reminder of small ways you can live mindfully – you don’t even have to make massive changes.

On to the visuals!

Wow these are so beautiful. So so so beautiful. This is an amazing set of images. I am sure the family will treasure these photos for years. The kids in these photos will be showing their grandchildren these photos one day.

Gosh, these are beautiful. I want to meet Tricia even more now – you’ve captured the bits of her personality that somehow don’t come through in her words and it feels like a complete picture. With her words and your photography, you get a real sense of their beautiful family.

Words can’t describe how happy we are with these pictures Xanthe. I keep revisiting them and seeing more and more of the true us. Thank you! I would not have not thought of getting a family portrait session like this before you suggested it – but now its something I want to make sure we do again. And what is amazing is that I hardly noticed you taking any pictures. It was just like hanging out with a friend for the day. Thank you x x x

I think my favourite thing is that you didn’t notice me… I’m glad I was so unobtrusive! Hopefully we’ll get some camping in with you guys soon xox
