- Deanne and Lee + 4 = FAMILY – (Alverstoke, Brunswick) July 11, 2013
I recently did a family shoot for Deanne and Lee at Alverstoke near Brunswick. It was a beautiful day and we were so lucky to be able to be outdoors on a May morning.
I met Shaye (8), Charli (7), Riley (4) and, their latest addition, gorgeous little Nikolas (9 weeks) for the session. The kids were fantastic throughout the whole shoot.
Discovering Alverstoke over a 2 hour session allowed us to move from the old carriage to the school house into the amazing barn with all its old world charm, providing fun and interesting backdrops. It was like a morning at the museum for the kids (and myself).
To capture all the children naturally and in sequence with each other meant suggesting some poses to capture everyone at their best (easier said than done) but thanks to Lee being great behind the camera we captured some gorgeous smiles … and eyes.
Everyone seemed to love the opportunity to run around and it sure beat the studio!
- Indie-Rose – A Winter’s Picnic July 10, 2013
I was so excited to plan a Winter outdoor shoot with Indie-Rose (2) and her Mum.
They are one of my oldest clients who have become one of my trusted friends.
We knew Indie-Rose was going to be a challenge, as she is a strong willed little mite, but we got some great shots keeping her busy and entertained with tea for two and bubbles.
We borrowed some amazing items from Ang (Wee Tackers) and set up in the cool sunset at Dalyellup.
We had a great time and feel a tea set will be ordered as Indie-Rose’s reward for being a great little subject.
This proves that Winter does not mean studio only photography.
- Fletcher and Family – Newborn July 9, 2013
After experiencing a string of Gemini babies who were happy to be rocked to sleep but then wake the moment I lay them in a pose, I am now contemplating taking holidays every June for the rest of my photography career.
Fletcher was a toughy but the shots we got of him were amazing and when awake he was so calm we could just continue on.
When Fletcher was feeding we were then entertained by big brother Cooper who was all smiles for the camera and loved it.
Enjoy Fletcher at 11 days old.
- Peyton – 14 days new June 12, 2013
Peyton poor love, at 14 days, had a little cold but we settled her down and were able to capture her both asleep and revealing her big, blue eyes. She definitely made us work for the shut eye shots but when looking at the images I think everyone will think we are lying.
We were able to incorporate some of Mum and Dad’s special items from family members and even her little bracelet sporting her first diamond. My kind of girl!
- Blaze – 14 days new June 4, 2013
This little man’s name is sure to bring him great things … Blaze (14 days) is a cool little man who was full of smiles when his big brother Jaxon (5) held him. Jaxon had just leaned down for a kiss when Blaze beamed a big smile. His arms were loose but Dad was close by so I could not let the shot pass me by.
He was a tough cookie at the beginning of the session with his tight little fists, which won me over in the end, but after a snuggle with Mum he was a dream.
Thanks to Rachel and especially Martin who endured the 28 degree room for the session with no complaints or breaks.
