When a client says to me "I'd really like to do the session at home" I get a bit excited! But then when they go on the say "and we live out at 12 Mile"....well, I just about fall over with happiness! The light out there is spectacular and I am always keen to add in the sentimentality factor of photographing in your family home. A session at home and in your garden just adds to how much the images will mean to you both now and in the future.
So spending time with Dane, Steph, Elly and Dusty and their home at 12 Mile, Broome was just a delight - from Elly's garden, Dusty's chooks, red dirt, mango trees and that amaxzng light it was a pretty bloody good afternoon! I know that Dane even conceded that is "the photos were worth it " :)
Photographing Elly in the chook pen reminded me of my own childhood and I think how lucky we all are to live in such a free and beautiful country. Dusty blew me away with his walking skills and 10 months and Steph and Dane are the ultimate hands on parents who obviously don't mind a bit of walking bare foot though the mango trees and prickles. Such happy days and such a wonderful family xx
