The Jeffrey Family | Family Photography in Winchelsea

Okay I'm not going to lie, I LOVED this family photography session. Yes, Jeffrey Family, you are awesome and a photographer's dream! To backtrack a little, we originally planned for this session to be in the Canola Fields, but mother nature had a different idea that weekend and the wild weather pretty much flattened them! Luckily, the family had a private property they had access to that was absolutely perfect in every way. The property was the family's regular hangout, so the place and the photos are genuinely going to be tied to this amazing time in their lives.

On top of that, the location was just beautiful - simple, rustic, Australian. Add a sunset and wow!

It was clear the boys were totally at home just playing and having fun around nature too - all the logs, trees, sticks, long grass, it was like one big beautiful playground.

I hope you guys are happy with the images and I see you back in a couple of years!

A Little Girl, Her Pretty Coat & Some Pretty Light | Geelong Photographer

I don't normally blog a session until clients have chosen their images, but this one is so pretty I can't help but share!  (Plus I really need to start blogging the rest of my sessions!)  For those of you wondering why I, and other photographers prefer to schedule afternoon shoots, this is why!  The light is pretty and three dimensional in the late afternoon.  You get beautiful backlighting or just that extra special 'glow' to an image.  An experienced photographer can figure out which way to face you and each image gets that certain magical quality that you only find in that hazy, late afternoon time. It's partly why I don't do any studio work.  I appreciate the many talented photographers out there who produce awesome studio work, but I love the element of surprise in working outside, not knowing how a shoot will come out until you see, play and work with the light.

Of course it helps to have extra cute kids, and little Alexis here is the perfection example of that!  She was a delight to photograph, much better behaved than my naughty little 2 year old who won't sit still for more than 2 seconds.     Enjoy :)

I'm available for family sessions around Geelong, Surfcoast, the Bellarine Peninsula and South East Melbourne!  I'm based in Ocean Grove.

Macey & Lachie's Family - Barwon Heads

Some families are awesome at letting the camera and the photographer 'see'  and capture the love they all have for each other and this family was no exception.   Plenty of the kids I meet adore their mum, but it was clear that these two kids LOVE their dad too and it was great to see a dad that wasn't afraid to show it back!  I really had fun on this shoot and it it makes my job easier when a family can be so open in front of me. So there they are, meet Macey & Lachie's family.

Bridget

Here is little Bridget and her family's shoot.  Bridget was such a sweet little girl and VERY easy to shoot.  This was definitely one of those times where I had too many photos at the end of the session! Shot in Barwon Heads again,  this session was just a pleasure :)
