This shoot is testament to the fact that you can get amazing family photos whatever the weather. Torrential rain seemed to be the theme for most of my shoots this summer! The bigger kids were heading off all over the country soon after our scheduled session, so we just had to make the most of it and you know what, it felt liberating to be out on the beach in a down pour and, even so, we were able to capture some beautiful and unique family images!

A couple of weeks later we were able to book in a re-run with the babies on Minnamurra Headland and what fun we had. Little miss ran around, laughed and smiled as was as wonderfully cheeky as all 18 month olds should be! There is nothing like cheeky toddler to naturally inject movement and fun into a family shoot.

I’m taking advantage of a quiet few days to catch up on the many fabulous shoots I wasn’t able to find time to blog before Christmas. The kids are back at school and the house is so calm and peaceful. I can’t quite believe i’m able to sit down in front on my computer for more then two minutes without interruption! It has been amazing to have our boys all to ourselves for the last five weeks; to go on camping adventures and enjoy some quality beach time, but all good things must come to an end and thankfully we all seem to be looking forward to the end of holiday chaos and the introduction of our more orderly school/work routines!

You would not believe it looking at the light in these photos that just minutes before this shoot the heavens opened and let loose buckets and buckets of rain…thankfully the sun was not far behind and the misty light was really something special. This is a new location for me and I’m in love! These great ancient fig trees have always had a magical hold on me and this one is particularly photogenic with its old stone walls and rolling green hills in the distance. I can’t wait to do many many more sessions here : )
