Family Photo Shoots at the Beach in Spring
These maternity photos turned out so beautifully. As I was editing all the preview photos for this blog post, I kept getting more and more excited with how they all turned out.
I met up with Kristie & Simon at their home and the poor things are in the process of moving house! Good on you Simon for your patience with me asking you to move furniture. I bet you didn't expect to break up the couch this soon before the actual move. It's amazing how you can photograph in minimal space, just give me a blank, painted wall.
Kristie was just glowing. This little bub is so much anticipated! I can't wait to meet this little angel in December.
I love it when I catch up with returning client's and see how much their children have grown. It's been two years since this family's last photo shoot and these boys have grown so much!
We had lot's of fun down the beach, jumping in the huge puddle that the previous night's downpour had left, building sandcastles and playing in the playground.
Winter is here and it's so nice hibernating inside in the warmth. Despite what people might think, Winter is a great time to take photos. Often when the sun does shine you get very bright, crisp gorgeous light.
Although the days might be shorter, the relatively low directional sunlight means that the sun is never directly overhead. This means you can often shoot all day and not get unpleasant shadows from overhead light.
Cloudy days makes taking photos a lot easier because you don't have to worry about harsh shadows over the face or uneven light. A lot of clouds produces beautiful, soft lighting. Sure, it's great to take pictures when the sun is glowing and warm light is everywhere but soft diffused light is just as pretty in my opinion. Foggy mornings give a real ethereal feel to photos or rugging up down the beach with the wind blowing gives a romantic feel.
So don't feel put off having photos taken in Winter and if all else fails we can always photograph your family indoors.
It's a hot one today....keep cool!
What better way to relieve stress than a walk down at our local beach, Port Phillip Bay. What was unusual was two black swans in the water but apparently they've been there for a while now!
