My husband’s grandparents (on his Mum’s side) were born and lived in Kythera – an island of Greece. In July this year, we chose to visit Kythera along with approximately 100 other Brisbane friends to celebrate a 50th birthday. It was the most memorable week long experience.
I was thrilled when I was asked to photograph 6 families while I was over there – many of who had connections to the island. I was so happy when this Brisbane family contacted me and asked if I would do a family session with them at a couple of their favourite villages – starting at HORA, the capital of Kythera and then AVLEMONA. We had so much fun together, walking the pretty narrow streets and taking in the sensational views. I loved photographing them and the very special bond they have with each other.
If you’ve never been to Kythera before, put it on your bucket list – it’s something really special.
