More Sun and Sand and a little bit of surf, anybody…?

Further to my last post, here are some more pics from our last family holiday! No kids this time – just the sand, a little bit of surf and some other stuff!

When the crowds disappear, the expanse of beach seems endless.

And one for my girls, who are massive One Direction fans….;-)

Sun, Sand & Family Fun

It’s so cold in Sydney at the moment… Winter has really hit with a vengeance! So I’m hoping that these pics let you picture warm sea breezes, sun and summer to take the edge off the cold – even though they are black and white!!

So just a few pics tonight of my three girls on our family trip to the Gold Coast, Queensland enjoying some quality ‘sister time’ at the beach.

Caitlin wanted to run with her big sisters, but was a little reserved with all that water!

So much sand, and sooo much fun!

Sun, Surf and Stunning Smiles!

You know when you see people and say, ‘these two are just meant for each other.’ Well here they are!

This couple, Chantelle and Scott, were so natural and all smiles for their session! And look at the result, s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g! I just hung back and let them do their thing. I think at one point they forgot I was there….

Thank you Chantelle and Scott for letting me capture your love and dedication for each other. It was an absolute pleasure. Let’s do it again sometime!

There were so many to share, I couldn’t choose…. click on an image to see a larger version

If you would like a session, winter is a great time, so give me a call and we can organise something!

Family + beach + happiness = GORGEOUS!

Things have been rather quiet from me on the blog side of things of late. I have said it before today, too! With launching my new website, photo sessions, other things to do and I’ll admit a teeny-weeny bit of “I’ll do it tomorrow”. Well today is tomorrow and aside from posting a gorgeous family shoot I did recently, I really need to catch up on my dictionary and WordPress weekly challenges. I think I’ve missed about 4 weeks worth!

So onto the purpose of this post… I met with this family last month and we headed down to Elouera Beach. It was quite a warm day and unfortunately due to timing constraints for the family we had to have our session at  the worst possible time for beach photography! Especially in full sun! Luckily I was able to rotate the family members so each of them had a go at becoming instant assistants by holding up my reflector as a sun shade!  Thanks for your help guys!

This family – Scott, Guia, Alexandra and Sean really got into their session. We had heaps of fun rolling around in the sand – well they did the rolling, I didn’t want to get sand in my camera! They were all naturals and despite the full sun, we got some fantastic shots that the family loved! Thanks guys for letting me capture your beautiful family. It was so refreshing to see how much love you all have for one another and how close you all are.

Inspirational I say!
