Saturday the 26th of May I had the pleasure of photographing Danielle, Scott, Lyla and Scotty Jr.
This shoot was set in the dunes and sand of Coastlands shore line. This family was a blast to photograph and the kids had a way of making you laugh when they weren't even trying to!
I knew Danielle from High School. She was in my second eldest brothers year group, so 4 years older than me! Herself and Scott have known each other from High School as they both went to Trident. I believe they began their relationship as best friends and eventually Scott threw his charm on Danielle because he knew they were destined to be more than friends. Two babies later and they are still as happy as ever! High School Sweethearts.
In my photo sessions with families I like to make the most of the time we have together, so in saying that I try to complete all of the family combinations I can think of (siblings shot, individual portraits, couple shot, mum and daughter/s, dad and son/s and vice versa!) but in saying that sometimes running around interests the kids more! So, thats when I incorporate the shoulder rides (thanks dad) or piggy back rides! These tricks work a treat and am so happy with how all of our combination shots came out!
Thank you so much again to the Grant Family for letting me do the honours of updating your family portrait, you have the most beautiful children and are such fun to have in front of the lens! Look forward to photographing you all again for the next update ;P
