Poutapu Whanau

This spunky whanau came to us wanting to capture some family portraits, and to also to have a gender reveal portrait taken- for those wondering what on earth a “gender reveal portrait” is, it’s basically a fun way to let your friends and family know the sex of your bub without just coming out and telling them straight up! So this time, it meant a photo of the family with a cute little bunch of balloons in a colour representative of bubs gender. Cute!

I love this picture so much. I love how it looks like the balloons are hugging in to the family squeeze. So adorable!  Family Photos Brisbane-12

Keryn’s boys certainly kept Adam on his toes! We love that their cheeky personalities that shine through in the photos. The boys loved the experience and had a ball, which is what our family photography is all about- creating time together as a family, having fun, and capturing your families dynamics and the silly things you love about each other at this moment in time. It truly is an honour to be able to preserve these beautiful memories for our clients.

Thank you Keryn for allowing us to photograph this time in your family’s life. We hope each time you look at your photos a massive grin will spread across your face:)

Skater boy:)

I loved photographing this family. The little dude was so full of life and loved every minute of the shoot (…as you will see!)

One of the things I enjoy most about photographing families, is that we not only get to create some amazing imagery for our clients walls, but also help them to create fun memories together. Gone are the days of boring staged photos! We love creating family photos bursting at the seams with each family members personality and love shining through.

Having your family photos taken is a really great excuse to dress up and enjoy one another’s company playing, laughing and hugging. So if you are worried about having your family’s photo taken… don’t be! You will love the experience as much as you will love your photos:)

Our family

Late last year we had a bit of a near tragedy happen within our family. Our 3yr old took a bit of a dive out of a second story window and fell 3.6mtrs (head first) onto a concrete landing. It was scary and it was horrible, but God blessed our boy and although he was bruised badly (and a bit shaken up), he was OK.

It was a bit of a reality check. Needless to say, the weeks following the accident, there was ALOT of family time, lots of cuddles and lots of prayers of thanks giving. Beautiful friends and family showered us with love and we just felt so blessed that we still had our little boy with us.

A couple of weeks later, we had a client shoot postpone on the most glorious afternoon ever! We decided to take the opportunity to go and play with our boys. Master 3 reminded us of our promise to take some photos of him flying… I reminded him that his face was still a bit bruised, and asked if he wanted to wait until his bruise had gone away. (He had been quite self conscious of it). He smiled and said “No, cause I can show people the photos and say “That’s my bruise!”” Haha such a boy!

We love building fun things out of cardboard together to play with (can’t beat a cardboard box for entertainment right?!). Our little guy has been right into “biplanes” for a while, so we decided to get crafty and make one together. He was so over-the-moon with our creation, and so very chuffed with his painting and sticking efforts, and said we needed to take a photo of him “flying in his plane”.

So our impromptu photoshoot turned out so fun! We pretty much role-played the whole time, which I think comes across in our little guys expressions. Bub is kinda just like “what are we doing?” Which we found very funny and we enjoyed coming up with captions for the photos to tell a story when we viewed them at home. For days after the shoot, master 3 was telling everyone he came in contact with that he flew his plane, all by himself (he was surprised and extremely excited when he saw the photos, and we could see his brain ticking over as he tried to make sense of the “flying” photos:)
