Lauren, Patrick & Bobby’s Family Photo Shoot
Before I tell you about Lauren & Patrick’s love story.. I met Lauren some years back, for her family photos with her Mum & little sister. So, when she reached out to book her own little family in, I was over the moon.
Lauren applied to be an apprentice mechanic at Toyota, where Patrick saw a black & white headshot of her, fell for her eyes, and told his bosses that she definitely needed an interview.
When they actually met, Patrick had a dirty face and a big wooly hat, but she then fell for his big beautiful eyes. Lauren was stood looking awkward and lost, wearing not very fetching overalls, but still Patrick knew she was special.
They soon got talking, and Patrick knew he had to make sure she got the job, although he didn’t know why. They get on like a house on fire, sharing the same sense of humour and love of swearing.
Soon Lauren got the job and the rest was history, they fell in love more and more every day & spent our time at work like nobody else was there. They finally took the plunge, and here we are 5 years later.
Lauren woke Patrick up at 5am upon finding out about Bobby, he turned the light back off and went back to sleep. After calling to see if Lauren wanted a bottle of wine that night, she realised he’d forgotten, and had to tell him again. Now Bobby is here, charming everyone he meets..
A few weeks before their shoot, Patrick messaged me to say that he’d be proposing on the day. I’m not a great secret keeper, and on the day not saying anything was super hard, so goodness knows how Patrick felt!
On The Day
Despite being warned not to, Patrick woke Bobby up. We were OK for a short time, before the tears came.
But once he was settled, we gave him a rest, while I slyly suggested some couple portraits
Then this happened..
Afterwards, Lauren told me that she’d dreamt about this happening, but that it was so long ago she’d almost forgotten.
Bobby had some chillout time on his own, watching his parents becoming engaged & not giving two hoots, this gorgeous baby boy posed for photos like a pro.
