Outdoor Family Photography Session – Brotherly Fun!

Family Photo Session on the Beach.

When two smiling boys arrive at their outdoor family photography session full of enthusiasm, energy, & imagination – what could possibly be better!  The sun shone, the wind stayed at bay, & the boys revelled in all things superheros, pirates, & the beach.

It was easy to see where the brothers get their happy little natures – Mum & Dad got amongst it all – a beautiful family that played, laughed, & just had a ball in one another’s company.

Our Family Album made especially to be both handled by little hands and handed down from generation to generation.

Capturing their spirit & joy & playfulness made for a fabulous afternoon of not only taking precious images, but of memory making.

Sometimes my job seems to be about guiding one big play session where my clients are relaxed and almost unaware of being photographed.  That’s when I know that a family photography session has been the best, and that the family will have amazing printed artwork to remember such special times!

As well as taking professional photographs for others, and writing content, I create photo encaustic artworks available for purchase as originals and fine art prints.

Some of my original photo encaustic artworks are showing as part of Byron Bay Retrospect Gallery’s exhibition, “Rime of the Ancient Mariner”.

If you find yourself in Byron Bay, make your way to the contemporary gallery on Jonson Street, & be inspired by some fantastic artworks of many different mediums.

All pieces featuring in the exhibition hold a link with the ocean, beach, & all things aquatic.  What a great prelude to Summer.

If you’d like to know more about my fine art work & the process of encaustics, please take a look at my previous blog post from March.

Beachside Family Photography Session – One Big Happy Family!

sneak peek 1
































One BIG Happy Family Gathering.  Blessed with 4 generations of family spending the holidays together, this family celebrated with a family photography session capturing everyone relaxing & playing beachside.  Beautiful though breezy, this summer’s afternoon made for some gorgeous light & images full of life & love!  We embraced the dramatic weather and used it to our advantage capturing images full of movement and action! Grandparents, parents, sons, daughters, cousins, and partners – this family’s beautiful connections were wonderful to capture.

Colour.  Laughter.  Love.  Excitement.

Outdoor Family Photography Session – Take Me To The Ocean

Beach Photo Shoot

SQP print products

I’d like to introduce you to my 2 future Art Directors!!  What a fantastic afternoon on the beach for an outdoor family photography session with these 2 exceptionally creative kids.  Time just flew as we played on the sand for our late summer photo shoot.

Cartwheels, bubble blowing, splashing, sandcastles, soccer, & super-hero dune jumping!  These fun-loving siblings were in their element & brimming over with imaginative photo shoot ideas for us to try.

Their shoot had everything from playful piggybacks, & acrobatics, to marvelling at the hushed sound of the waves blowing through a shell.  Their enthusiasm was contagious.

Thank you both for an absolutely fun-filled and creative afternoon – complete with very gorgeous, happy & engaging smiles!

Such a pleasure to share with these 2 as their beautiful mum & gorgeous nanna enjoyed the frolics from a rug on the beach.  I can’t wait to hear what they have planned for our next photoshoot later in the year when they welcome a new little bubba into their family.

So heartwarming to see kids revelling in nature.  Kids being kids.
