In this house tea and cookies are presented, when you walk through the door, by Anna’s dear husband with a British accent.
I am a sucker for accents and cookies.
The house also comes with two very delightful kids and a little dog.
Love kids and dogs.
Homemade soda bread is effortlessly thrown together in just a few minutes, and before you know it… you are eating a steaming hot slice with the perfect amount of butter.
Homemade bread + butter = Heaven.
And all this amazing-ness was created by the lovely Anna herself… who makes you forget time with her piercing blue eyes, captivating stories and big heart.
It may be a little premature to say this, but I think I fell in love with this household and everyone in it… But since moving in with them is probably out of the question, I am happy to settle for the few moments that I had to document their lives last Sunday afternoon.
And I am even more excited about the possibility of working with Anna on her documentary project. A few weeks ago, I received an email from Anna that said:
I just got accepted for a proposal I submitted to Kickstarter and would love to have a few great photographs to add to the promotional pieces.
The project I am working on is a photo essay/documentary called International Lunchbox, it is a collection of narratives from people, talking about what they feed their children, the issue, the histories, the stories and recipes. I am trying to make some contacts to people who may be interested in participating in telling their stories. It is a photo essay/documentary giving a very personal account from the vantage point of the parent or caregiver.
I told Anna that her project is exactly the kind of work that I would like to be doing more of and to please let me know how I can help.
So we started with tea, cookies, conversation and soda bread… and I can not wait to see what comes next.
