Meet Laura and Chris. On a perfect summer evening in January we headed to the beautiful shores of Seven Mile Beach. It wasn’t any ordinary Saturday. There was the spectacular sea mist that rolled in just in time for a pretty amazing sunset, the low tide and endless reflections on the sand, and most importantly it was the wedding anniversary of this gorgeous couple, who met when they were 19, and this year are celebrating 19 years together. Enjoy a peek into our afternoon of anniversary celebrations.
The final few months of 2017 was a wonderful busy time of family sessions, all making the most of the perfect warm weather and getting photos in time for Christmas.
This family session was a very special one for two reasons. Firstly, Kylie and Fons are dear friends and secondly their children aren’t my usual clients. They get around in beautiful fur coats and have impeccable behaviour when bribed with liver treats.
I first met Kylie at the local dog park when her love for pony sized dogs became apparent as she ogled my huge Wolfhound from the other side of the grassy headland. We introduced ourselves, she patted Fergus (my pony sized dog), she offered to walk Fergus when we couldn’t and began taking him on adventures around town, Ferg riding in the back of her FJ cruiser, his big wirey haired head resting on her shoulder, hot breath fogging up the windows. This turned out to be the beginning of a lovely friendship, for both Fergus and myself and my family. So scroll below and enjoy this lifestyle session of Kylie, Fons, Tilda (black fur with the striking eyelashes) and Capo (the handsome brunette).
On a sunny winter afternoon at Bundeena in the beautiful Royal National Park in Sydney, I spent some time hanging out with this awesome trio. The brief was to get some natural candid moments of this beautiful family doing their thing, and that we did!
Just three days before they set off on their return journey to their home in the United States, I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon at Werri with this gorgeous Mumma and son duo. Meet Jennifer and Toren. Here is a snippet from our adventures that afternoon on the hill.
There is everything to love about in home lifestyle sessions and the Cleary family embraced all of it! From the moment I knocked on the door and was greeted by a very excited Eva, to seconds later when Ivor discovered his fascination with my lens and threw a delighted smile my way. Inhibitions were brushed aside, and everyone slipped into their role of being in front of the camera with ease. Eva dived straight into taking me on a tour of the house, side tracking to proudly show me her favourite toys, her bed and how ace she is at jumping on it, and then finished up the tour by pulling out her Fisher Price camera and getting a few shots of her own. I think I might have a future second shooter for the ruby & ted team in Eva.
We played for a while, read some books, refuelled on choccie and finished up the morning with an all-in music and dance session.
This is one of my longer blog posts but it’s worth the scroll. Happy viewing! And thanks for inviting me into your home Eugene, Gemma, Eva, Ivor and Chief!
