Day in the life family session | The Pavoine
Because love is all
I spent the entire day with the Pavoine family at their home, for a day in the life family session. They live in a beautiful house surrounded by fields in the countryside in the West of France. I like documenting families when the days are the longest in the sweet warmth of June.
What I love about this family is their story, their freedom and their endless love. Their mom contacted me with these beautiful words. Above all, she told me why she wanted me to capture an entire day with her family.
“The first time we saw each others, something happened. A thunderbolt of sorts. Except that it wasn’t possible. The time passed but the evidence was still there, stronger. He left everything for me, he fought like a lion, and in turn I left everything for him.
We started from scratch, without a house, without furniture, but not without our love. And we rebuilt a fireplace. The most important thing for me, is that I found the man with who I want to spend the rest of my life, my other half.
The girls are the center of our lives, we try as much as possible to go at their own pace and to enjoy a quality life with them. So the awakening is them in the morning, with cuddles in bed, and then we spend most of our time outside. The countryside is perfect for the kind of life we want.”
“For us those moments are the things we will treasure always. These are the memories we will have forever.”
Also, if you enjoyed watching this day in the life family session, you should have a look at this 24 hours session I did during a snowy day in Manchester, you will love it!
