Family photos

Getting professional family photos can be tricky as an expat.  For us, finding someone to do what we want locally was hard, and finding the time when we are home for breaks is nearly impossible.  We've been pretty set on getting some done and we wanted something that reflected where we are living for a couple of reasons.  It's important for us to have representations of where we have lived to take with us as we move to help Tegan have a sense of where she's lived and have consistent objects around (pictures are small and flat and take up little room in a box!).  And, we want to document our growing family for ourselves and to share with extended family and friends.

Lucky us, we discovered our good friend - Peter Hennigar - is a pretty amazing photographer!  It was a great morning out, full of laughing and onlookers.  He has a young family also so was great with a very cranky Tegan, knew that we wanted a bit of Nepal charm in our photos and shot a whole bunch of different styles.  The highlight had to be either the man joining our photo second photo down or changing from jeans into the skirt in the middle of the square with a rather surprised audience.  We are ecstatic with how they turned out.  I can't wait to get them printed and up on the walls!

If you are living in or visiting Nepal and want some more info check out his site at Hennigar Photography.
