At the start of the year my first large assignment was to take portraits of five families at Outward Bound, Anakiwa in the fantastic Marlborough Sounds. What a chore!! Seriously it is so beautiful there and I even got to walk to the first bay of the Queen Charlotte walk. The people were incredibly friendly and welcoming and I am really pleased with the results. The family sizes ranged from 12 members through to 3 and the first day was capped off with a very enjoyable BBQ. Chante, Stu and Isla Whitehouse were my hosts and my thanks goes out to them and especially to Chante for organising such a wonderful trip. I certainly hope to get back there.
