When the Harpur Family first asked me to shoot their 40th Wedding Anniversary celebration I was delighted given they have been part of my life for the past 30 years. I had no idea it was going to be in Mauritius! Before I know it we were jetting off to spend a week with this very closeknit family. There were 11 families making up 58 family members that came from all corners of the globe to celebrate  with Leigh and Rodd in Mauritius. Families came from New Zealand, Canada, Australia and South Africa to spend precious time together. We all stayed at the Plantation Da Albion a fabulous Club Med resort.

We had barely been in Mauritius for 24 hours and we managed to pull off a family shoot on the beach of the entire group. We were so grateful for the most spectacular sky with very little wind that evening, although our stands with our flashes had to be anchored to the ground with six packs (a Mcgyver trick cleverly pulled out the hat by my hubby who managed to assist me for the week..otherwise known as “Agent Orange”)

The second day we spent the whold day in an inter family sports event featuring swimming, table tennis, “beach athletics” and finishing up with American football. Before the festivities of the main formal celebration dinner we fitted in informal family shoots with each of the families on the beach! These were my favourite images…
