I get a wee bit excited when I'm asked back to photograph a family multiple times. And this is certainly the case for many of the families I photograph from my home town in Meningie, S.A. I love seeing how the children have grown, many from babies and seeing their personalities develop as they grow into these beautiful little people.
Sunday arvo I made a quick trip down to Meningie to photograph a family during the evening light. We'd picked to a location where the children could adventure, play and explore. Although it was a touch windy, we managed to find a few spots that were a little more sheltered for the girls.
I'll be completely honest, its rare that I have a family shoot where everyone is absolutely and completely perfectly behaved and the kiddies are 100% willing to have their photograph taken, and this shoot was no exception. But honestly, if everyone were to be that well behaved, there would be no personality, no emotion, no character! What I'm saying is, fear not if you little one is a tad camera shy, a little precious or whatever mood they decide to throw at us on the day! This is children! They're unpredictable and most importantly, they're honest! But that is what I love about them. And these girls, in my opinion, behaved exactly how I would want children to during a shoot... honestly... They laughed, they ran around, there were a couple tears, but most importantly, there was honest emotion from this absolutely gorgeous little family!
I love nothing more than when children are not afraid to show their personality and emotion, no matter what it is!
What a beautiful family full of so much love and joy.
