After commissioning individual portraits of his two boys, Charles Hunting decided to mark the erection of his new home on the old family farm with a large family portrait posed on the site of the home. They are sitting on a needlepoint blanket, made by Ingrid's friends as a gift marking the birth of their first-born. With them is their much loved sheepdog.
