Family Photo Shoot: Zsofia and David’s Family Portraits
Date: 30th December 2016
Location: Wellington Point
There’s a big difference between a UK Christmas and a Queensland Christmas and it took me a couple of years to get used to it! Prawns instead of turkey, salad instead of roasties; and mid-thirty temperatures instead of negatives! We spent this last Christmas with the relatives back in Manchester and landed back to a warm and sultry Brisbane day. I wasted no time in getting behind the camera again and met Hungarian-born Zsofia and David at one of my favourite Redlands photo spots; Wellington Point Park.
Zsofia and David brought along their parents to the family photo shoot, but the star of the show was their beautiful daughter Lili. She loved the camera and smiled and flirted for the whole hour!
I always try and get the big family shots first as these tend to be the hardest; getting a full family to smile at the camera at the same time. I needn’t have worried with Lili – she was a legend right from the start! She even allowed me to sit her amongst Wellington Point’s amazing fig tree roots and smiled the whole time! And look at that smile! What a cutie!
Every family photo shoot needs parents and Zsofia and David weren’t camera why either! Thanks so much for making my job so easy, guys!
I always like to get some photos of the kids with each parent too – as a parent of two myself, I rarely get photos of me with the kids!
I tend to think that as a family portrait photographer, having kids definitely helps. I have no problems with making silly noises and pulling silly faces – anything that will get the littlies attention! It usually gets some sympathy giggles from Mum and Dad too!
Is there anything more beautiful in a family photo than the smiles of a newborn?!
And after an awesome session amongst the tree roots, we headed to the jetty for a different flavour. And then all too sudden the hour was over and I headed home to do some editing (and to get over the jetlag!)
“I wanted to thank you for taking such amazing photos of us!I am so happy I found you to do our photos. As I mentioned before, we had a fabulous relaxing time in the afternoon and your photos were amazing!” Zsofi
