The Brown Family

They say that home is where the heart is. And my, what joy must've filled Julie's heart as three of her four children came from all over the world to come back to their home in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. They had all come back to celebrate their dad Tim's 50th birthday with other family and lifelong friends. Daniel came back from Italy, Leigh from his army base in Townsville and Julian had travelled back from London. It's amazing to see how distance cannot break the bond between Julie, Tim and their four sons. Even though they have lived apart for so many years, you wouldn't have guessed it! The boys joked around while Julie commanded her troops into line for family photos. We started out in their backyard, in a treehouse Tim had built for the boys and moved out into the town of Woodanilling for the rest of photos.   We then feasted on lamb on a spit (Tim's runaway lamb!), roast ham and good old country cooking as friends came to wish Tim a Happy 50th Birthday. Julie and Tim, you have a warm and wonderful family, thank you for having me there to capture this very rare and precious family occasion. Special thanks to Esther for assisting and helping share the driving for this event!
