Family at the beach {Wynnum Family Photographer}

I met this family when there was just three of them.  Our maternity session was on a steaming hot day with a massive storm brewing which broke just as we finished up.  For their family session we held out for that perfect day so this gorgeous family could enjoy the afternoon glow as they frolicked on the beach. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to capture your growing family.

Celebrating 50 Years as Family

Quite a few weeks ago now I had the utmost pleasure to drive to the Sunshine Coast and capture some images of this wonderful couple who were celebrating 50 years of marriage with their family. Even more special is the fact that I get to call these lovely people family – my Uncle and Aunty, cousins and second cousins.

It was a beautiful afternoon – although a little on the windy side, such a wonderful occassion to come together to celebrate.

Family of Four in the Park

One of the things I love most about being a photographer is seeing my clients family grow.  I love meeting the little babies I photograph grow up to be gorgous toddlers, inquisitive children and amazing teenagers.  I love meeting their siblings and capturing some images of their growing family, frozen in time, just for this moment.  Thank you to this wonderful family for inviting me to capture some moments for you again.  It was such a pleasure!

Winter Wonderland

Winter is a lovely time of year in Brisbane, Australia, as long as you don’t have to get out of bed too early in the morning that is.  (Winters in Townsville and North QLD are much nicer but lets not get hung up in my pining for the warm tropics).  Winter afternoons have the most gorgeous glow to them and as that sun sinks down below the horizon and the warmth of the day sinks with it, it makes for a beautiful time to photograph. One of my favourite places to photograph is especially gorgeous in winter when the wetlands have dried up and the long dry grass stretches out in the sunshine.

I was very lucky that a little store in Brighton, Jolie offered to lend us some gorgeous clothing and accessories for this concept shoot. (They also have a shop in Wavell Heights or shop online – just a little plug 🙂

My model Georgia did an amazing job at both bringing these beautiful clothes and the concept to life.  I hope you enjoy our little snapshot of an Aussie Winter wonderland

 

Down by the river

My homework assignment this week inspired me to attempt something I have always wanted to try and my gorgeous model Katie brought the whole scene to life.  After some scouting around I finally found the right location at Cedar Creek in Samford.  Katie answered a model call-out on our Facebook page and travelled all the way from Toowoomba and even with some trouble finding the place she was an absolute delight to work with! Thank you for your generous donation of time Katie and I hope you enjoy your photos.

 

An afternoons wandering

What a beautiful day today was!  Clear blue skies, warm sun and two kids with plenty of energy.  I am always on the look out for new locations to take my clients  to and capture some stunning images.  The other day I spotted another little walking track I hadn’t seen before and I finally had some time to check it out today.

We packed ourselves a little snack, a hat and the camera and set off to find some gorgeous light and nice locations to capture some memories.  Unfortunately my kids are maybe a little sick of having their photo taken

There were lots of laughs to be had and we found a new place to go exploring – plenty more paths to tackle next time as well!  Hoping to find the little lagoon that is hidden down there somewhere.
