All in Family

Lifestyle family portrait session

We’ve been talking about doing a portrait session for ages and this weekend it was our last chance before Sarah takes down the canvas dome that has been home for her family for the last few years, and relocates it to another piece of land. Sarah made the dome herself, and her children made their own bedrooms…the structure, the windows…everything. I can barely get our kids to make their beds! They’re inspiring to say the least. We made sure we got some photos of Nutmeg, their jersey cow, and Banjo the dog was making sure he was in plenty of photos too.

Family portraits on the farm

It's always lovely to meet new families and it's extra-special when you know you're going to be photographing their wedding this year too. I loved my afternoon amongst the sheep and kangaroos with Deanne, Glen and Georgia, and a soundtrack of raucous black cockatoos.

Denmark Studio Sessions

For the last couple of years I’ve done a pre-Christmas special on studio sessions. The first year it was because I had the time and space while I was holding a 3-week long exhibition in the town centre of Denmark… and this last time it was because I’d had so much fun the year before!

Tree Elle Retreat {family portraits}

Desmond and Pat had spent time at Tree Elle Retreat several years ago whilst touring the south west with some friends from Europe. It was clearly an experience that was memorable for all the right reasons because when they were thinking about how to mark Desmond's 80th birthday, a gathering of the clan from far and wide at Tree Elle over the Easter long weekend was the perfect solution. With four separate self-contained houses set amongst beautiful gardens it was the perfect location for a big family reunion with their five children and eleven grandchildren (and the perfect opportunity for an extended family photo session!)
