Mother’s Day Photo Shoot: Vanessa, Tony & Family!
Date: 23rd April 2016
Location: Wellington Point
Mother’s Day photo shoots are a great gift idea for the Mum that has everything! Mother’s Day photos are personal, fun, loving, and they last a lifetime! Which is why Ness and Tony booked on a Mother’s Day photo shoot a few weeks before Mother’s Day so that they could print the photos off for Tony’s Mum as a Mother’s Day gift! Very wise thinking!
Wellington Point was our location of choice (it is one of my favourite locations for family portrait photography in Brisbane) and headed to the centuries-old fig trees and started snapping. The guys were amazing! Everyone looked at the camera, smiled and didn’t misbehave! Even the kids were patient and weren’t distracted by the play park!
I got some lovely family photos first and then a few photos of the kids together, including some lovely individual photos, then sent them off to play whilst I got some shots of Mum and Dad being cute! Aaaahhh, I remember those pre-kid days!
We were soon joined by Tony’s brother Matt and his lovely wife and continued snapping – I usually expect around 15 minutes of good photo time before boredom and itchy feet kick in and the specialist tactics take place, but in spite of having a 4-year old with us, we were still able to shoot for much longer!
I got some couple photographs and some family photos then stood back and got some more spontaneous, unposed photographs with the long lens as the family played and laughed. But sure enough where there’s boys and trees, the guys soon started climbing and swinging and generally being monkeys! No problems, I thought, I’ll grab some nice photos of the adults…hang on, Tony and Matt were up the tree too!
I did spend a few minutes photographing the big people, all the time with one eye on the kids in the branches!
Then as patience started to wane, we headed to the jetty to recharge the batteries and grabbed a few more family photos in the sunshine before Tony grabbed the kids and started throwing them overboard! Actually, he didn’t but it made for some awesome giggling shots!
I used to struggle with what to get my Mum for Mother’s Day but every year we give her something fun and personal: a photo canvas of the grandkids, a photo book of her last visit, or some beautiful framed prints. After all, they are timeless and just keep on giving and no mother ever tires of photos of her children or grandkids!
“Thank you so much again we are very happy with outcome and really enjoyed looking at them together, now to decide what to print! Ness”
