An outdoor session with The Smith Family 

The Smith family were lucky enough to win a photo session voucher with me. As the weather was ok (just about!) we decided to go exploring in Cobham, the family’s home town.

Harrison is an incredible boy who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Duchenne is a muscle wasting condition that is taking Harrison’s strength at an alarming rate. He is in a wheelchair full time now. His family have set up a charity to help raise money towards research and to help raise awareness of this condition. www.harrisonsfund.com

We made the most of the dry weather and walked around the local roads. William loved kicking his rugby ball, mainly at his brother and we all tried hard to keep up with Harrison who kept whizzing off!

 

It is always a pleasure to meet families and chat to them. It was good to talk to Donna about Duchenne’s and it was great to see the brothers (much like my own boys) annoying each other, talking about football and fortnite but also helping each other (and loving each other really!)

Outdoor sessions are great fun and also wear the kids out a bit. Bonus!
