Escape to the country...By Hawke's Bay family photographer, Eva Bradley

When you reach a certain age, it is experiences that matter most, and few of them so precious as those involving family. For Sue's special milestone (which I'm sure she won't appreciate me specifying here!) she and husband, Ed, gathered their children and grandchildren and took them away from the bustle of life in Auckland for a long weekend in beautiful Hawke's Bay. At Black Barn's incredible River Lodges overlooking the Tukituki Valley and Te Mata Peak, they made some memories which will now remain among their most precious. I was totally stoked to be given the opportunity to record some of those chilled out family times while they were here.
