We have them, some we like more than others, but family is family!
I can’t imagine my life without my immediate and extended family. My Mum and Gummy Bear (Dad) has given me so much in my life, the freedom to explore this “crazy idea” of being a photographer, they have been there from the start cheering me on with their unwavering support! My brother Maddy (real name, Trevor) is the best big brother a little sister could ask for, he is a gentle giant and one of my favourite human beings.
My extended family is LARGE and OMW the dynamics when we are all under the same roof can be rather entertaining and a little scary if you were an outsider. But I love each one and I can share memories with each one of them.
So all this craziness has allowed me to be patient, to read family dynamics and situations very quickly, we all have a quirky aunt, a shy cousin and a loud dad. But would you honestly change them? You love them for being who they are, you celebrate it. This is why I LOVE family photography, because I honestly never know what I am going to get when I meet you!
My family photography is about capturing those little natural moments, I will probably ask you to “talk to each other”, walk up and down the beach, “don’t look at me”, pretend you love your brother, tell you I have a belly button, ask you random questions and hopefully at end of the session we would have shared a few awkward moments, laughs and created a fun, relaxed photo session. And I hope in time you will look back at these photos and laugh but also look back on them with love, these are memories that will last a lifetime and beyond.
The Garden Route has provided me with some of the best locations and if you are unsure of where you would like your photographs taken, please let me know and together we will figure out the perfect location for you and your family.
