I have photographed Sarah with her first born, Taj some time ago on Buffalo Beach near Binningup where she wanted a family photographer to capture just her and her little man. He was a tough cookie to say the least. I was excited to capture Sarah again with her second born, Lyla, in a newborn shoot. Taj was on hand and had warmed to me a little more then our first encounter on the beach. Well, here we were celebrating Lyla reaching the 9 month milestone and we ventured inland to their family dairy farm near Busselton.
Sarah and I had talked about capturing Lyla amongst the cows on the farm after her newborn shoot so of course my mind was swirling with what I had envisaged for this session. Not only did we have cows but we had bulls and the most adorable Jack Russell puppy you have ever seen named Wilbur. As I downloaded the images I think they surpassed all my expectations. Taj was such a great sport and maybe those last few years of being exposed to me, and the big black thing in his face, he finally was ready to play. He was charming!
Lyla was gorgeous and still being oh so petite the vintage high chair was perfect. She was giggles and smiles the whole way through.
Wes (Dad) arranged the feed for the cows just right and even though Wes and Sarah were in their work gear I could not help but throw them in for an adorable, natural family photo.
Thanks guys for allowing me to again capture another great family milestone.
As dairy farming is a hot topic at the moment the timing of your images and blogging about them could not be more appropriate. It was amazing to see the business Wes and Sarah are building for their family and the future.
P.S. No cows, bulls, puppies or children were harmed during this photo session.
