“I can feel the bones are smiling in my body.” Alanis Morissette.
Squeals of delight raced through the air as two little girls thew sand and twirled in their dresses on the beach. Addie and Ra are full of life, love and laughter. I adore the connection they have with each other and their playfulness. It was such a pleasure to photograph this down-to-earth family and doubly awesome because we had an amazing, no-wind beach day with a spectacular sunset!
“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!” Dr Seuss.
This little is going places for sure! How cute is he?
How often do you, as a mum or dad, get into the photos with your children as opposed to behind the camera? This family has recognised the importance of mum and dad actually being in the photographs with their children and they are celebrating it in style and aiming to recreate professional family photos every year or so. We all know that life can get really busy and things like this can get left behind as “something I’ll do later.” Then all of a sudden a year or two have gone by and you still haven’t organised those family photos you have been meaning to do. Di (the gorgeous mum here) wanted to make sure she didn’t let another minute go by without these precious photos, so she contacted me and said, let’s do it! It’s like ripping off a band-aid. When you find a photographer that you love, don’t delay, just do it!
