We had this session booked in and for the week before had been watching the weather forecast closely. On the day, the radar was looking a bit questionable, but with two families involved, and a can do attitude we set off. I am always happy to reschedule sessions due to weather or ill health, but this time we were all eager to have a go with the option of a take 2 if needed.
What struck me throughout this session was the way that the younger cousins looked up to their big ones as a source of fun, safety and snacks! ;)
If you are hoping to have photos taken in time for Christmas, get in quick! I have limited weekend spaces available.

Lucky me won tickets to the Tesselaar Tulip Festival through Maroondah Yarra Ranges Kids and yesterday was the perfect day for our visit. My two smalls and I invited a friend to join us and we had the most amazing day in the hills. My kids asked if we could go again today! If you get the chance to visit, do! It is beautiful up there and the festival runs until October 15th. And it's the perfect backdrop for photos.
When a husband or wife contacts me to arrange a surprise gift for the other, I get extra excited! This time, the family and I met in a beautiful park in Surrey Hills. The light was golden and the leaves gloriously crunchy. They were just right for throwing and rolling in! With grandparents, parents and a very special auntie, we made sure that every relationship was captured.
I love this feedback from the session- "I think in the years to come as we look at the photos, we'll remember the fun we had as a family as well as having the amazing photos as a tangible reminder." THIS is what I aim for. All the time.
Yesterday the sun was shining and I decided to get my little guy and I out of the house for a walk and a play in the leaves. He brought along his bubbles that we bought the day before. I ran back to grab my camera and I'm so glad that I did. It's so precious to me to have photos of my family as they are right now.
This is my Sam.
Happy in his own activity.
Content having time with mum.
I love him... and I know that I will look back at this photo in even a years time and be so grateful
that I stopped to record this season of bubbles and leaves.
If you had to choose how you would like your family to relate to each other, I think that this one would be a great model to aspire towards. Amy and Frank are wonderfully relaxed and down to earth parents and their boys Campbell and Wilson have the most gorgeous bond. I loved watching these guys interact so naturally together and with Campbell's partner, Courtney. The time flew as we chatted over life and work. Amy and her business partner started Eastside Midwives and Counselling to support the families of Melbourne through their journey of pregnancy, birth and early parenting. As I have such a love of these things and a longing to photograph more births, it was fascinating to spend time with someone so passionate and experienced in the area. Lots of genuine moments captured in this fun session.
