Family Photographs: With a NewBorn Photo Session!
Location: Heritage Park
Date: 24th February 2017
They always say never work with children and animals, but quite frankly neither bothers me in the slightest, especially when the children are as awesome and well behaved as Gyorgyi’s four kids! I was in Heritage Park to capture some family photographs, and I knew with a welcome as warm as that, it was going to be a great family portrait session!
I headed to their beautiful house in Heritage Park early one warm morning and was greeted by three beaming and cheeky smiles! I grabbed some photos of the kids on the stairs first – an impromptu game of ‘Peekaboo’ raised a few smiles and laughs; even from Mum and dad!
Gyorgyi and Roman’s newborn son joined us for a few shots – what a well behaved little boy he is! And so easy to photograph! Newborn photography shoots are usually punctuated by tears but we didn’t have any at all!
He slept the whole time, and even allowed Mum to change his clothes and get some nudey shots! He wasn’t overly keen on the baskets (Gyorgyi had brought some of her own – it’s always nice to have some new props to photograph!) so we let him chill on the blankets instead!
Roman had to work that day so we worked quickly and got some great family photographs. The kids were especially well behaved and keen to have their photo taken and they didn’t even tire or get bored as we progressed through the morning!
I love close up shots – capturing the details on a newborn photo shoot – and can this little dude grip on to Mum’s hand!
In general the more people there are in a photo the more challenging it becomes! Blinking becomes more prevalent of course, but these guys rocked!
We grabbed some photos on the stairs, the couch and then headed outside to a fantastic mango tree.
Hi Andy, thanks for the photos, they look very good, I already heave done a bunch of printouts.
But altogether thank you for your service, you jumped even with such a short notice. Gyorgyi
Family Photography Session:
Location: Wellington Point
Date:23rd February 2017, 6am
I love early morning family photography sessions. No really I do! I have a one year old so I am awake at 5am every day, so I was delighted when Nikita and Simon asked if a 6am family photography session at Wellington Point would be OK. Let’s do this!
It was a beautiful, warm and clear morning, and at that time of day the whole Wellington Point park area was home to a couple of fisherman, and us! We had the place to ourselves and made use of the jetty, park, and amazing sheltered fig tree area – all of which are fantastic locations for family photography!
Happily Nikita and Simon brought along their son Nico, an awesomely friendly little guy who was more than happy to throw a heap of big smiles my way!
The fig trees really are an amazing place for family photography – they make for such a great backdrop and the broad canopy allow us to take photos at any time of day. The amazing views across the bay to Manly and Brisbane city don’t hurt either!
And of course being a peninsular, Wellington Point is surrounded by water, and water always makes for great family photos! And having an early start meant the jetty was free for us to get some great family pictures on!
Wellington Point also has three play parks, which is great as a bribery tactic for kids! We took Nico to go and have a play and to get some spontaneous photos; sometimes these are the best shots from the session!
And then all too quickly the hour was up and we were saying goodbye! It was an awesome family portrait session and a great start to the day! Thanks so much for being so much fun and so relaxed, especially at that time of the morning, and I hope to see you for another family photo session again soon!
Family Photography: Lisa and Beau
Date: 7th August 2016
Location: Wellington Point
Lisa and Beau had received a gift voucher for a family portrait photography session for Christmas last year and booked in a hour one Sunday morning at Wellington Point. And it was a LOT of fun!
Lisa and Beau’s two beautiful girls – Ariah and Harlow – were fantastic to photograph and loved being the centre of attention for the morning! It helped that it was a glorious day – sunny and not too windy.
The girls were awesome and loved being in front of the camera. The great thing about having family photos at Wellington Point is the variety – we have the jetty, the sea, the beach, the bay, King Island and the amazing fig trees! Oh and the awesome reflections in the rock pools at low tide!
And hilariously the girls loved getting down and dirty amongst the leaves – even scooping some up for a taste! But that’s the great thing about family portrait photography; you can get some nice formal posed shots, and some fun, spontaneous photos too!
And I guess if we get a lot of shots of the girls, we should probably get some of Mum and Dad too! Luckily Lisa and Beau didn’t mind their photo being taken, and the girls were busy eating leaves anyway! Good on you guys!
I absolutely love how this family photo shoot turned out – relaxed, fun and with a great variety of photos. Can’t wait for the next one guys!
