The long weekend weather was just perfect for this shoot. With clear blue skies, a lovely family of five (Claire, Rob, Robert, Charlie and Olivia) to photograph, at my favourite location at Brookfield, it was destined to be a good day!
I was firstly introduced to little Olivia…..what a sweetie! She was dressed in a gorgeous little pink tutu skirt that ruffled up at the back. I just couldn’t get enough of taking photos of her as she waddled away from me – too cute!
Then I met Claire and Rob’s two little boys, Robert and Charlie. From the moment I met them, these two little brothers were just so full of energy, riding round the balcony on their scooters and bikes and jumping on the trampoline. This made for some great action shot’s!
Later in the shoot, we all ventured down to the lake which surrounded their property (just beautiful scenery!) and here we stumbled across a snake slithering across the pontoon. It’s not every day you spot a snake on a shoot, so of course I had to photograph it. It was great to be able to capture Olivia’s excitement – it was her first encounter with one of these slippery creatures.
We finished off the shoot back at the house where Claire (originally from the UK), wanted a shot of her gorgeous family in front of the red telephone box. What a lovely way to end the shoot and a great photo to send back home to her family.
