I always love to photograph little kids – it’s super challenging but also hard to walk away without some great shots. Kids are just cute.
But, this particular shoot was extra special for me. Nearly three years ago, I did the hen’s party photography for this beautiful mum’s hen’s bash on the Gold Coast. Again, hard to go wrong when the hen’s party consisted of thirteen absolutely stunning Russian women. I didn’t understand a word that anyone said, but it’s impossible not to feel the joy and excitement of sisterhood on the brink of a young woman’s wedding.
So naturally I was absolutely thrilled when the bride from that party, Anastasia, contacted me. She requested I undertake some lifestyle family photography for her daughter’s first birthday at their beautiful home on the Gold Coast. Although people don’t necessarily notice me so much at events, by the time I have spent two hours photographing your hen’s party and then many more hours looking at your face while I edit the photos, I really feel like I know you. The prospect of seeing how Anastasia had grown and matured, and meeting her husband and daughter was very pleasing, and pleased I was. Anastasia was still, of course, beautiful. Her little girl Alyssa was absolutely perfect. Husband and home both lovely.
To top it off, two of the other young women from the hens party were also there with their adorable little girls. It really was a lovely family photography session. Yes, you need patience to photograph little kids. Especially three of them. But the results are worth it.
If you’re looking for a Brisbane Lifestyle Family Photographer, or family photography on the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast, contact me. I’d love to hear from you.
