The McCormack Family

In the McCormack Family are proud parents Stephen and Emma with their three beautiful children Oliver, Ashton and Harper – who was born in lock down!

Oliver and Ashton make their parents super proud by being amazing brothers to Harper. They are so gentle and loving towards her and treat her like a princess.

Emma, Stephen and their children spend most of their family time just hanging out at home, it is their happy place. They enjoy just taking it easy together either watching the kids play on the tramp or bars at home, or going to cafes, eating treats and playing at the park. Oliver, Ashton and Harper are always up for trying out events around Manawatu and  they all love to fruit pick as a family.

A recent mountain trip to Ohakune turned into a major adventure. “While we were up there the weather turned and they closed the road behind us. We decided to get out when at the top anyway as we had driven so far. It was an actual blizzard! We kept the youngest in the car and the rest of us got out but only lasted a few minutes. Our stuff was flying everywhere and we could hardly see right in front of us. The weather was outrageous but exhilarating for us all!!”

This family really values their amazing memories and images captured in their session. In Emma’s words, “Having lost my mother in October, I realised how important memories are. Photos are everything now! I wanted to capture us as a family now while the kids are young (and while we are relatively young, ha!). I really wanted a large portrait that captured our love and our close family unit. We have a perfect spot in our lounge where it will take center stage. We are so excited to receive it and hang it up!!”
