Family photography in Sydney – Stephen and his family
I love doing family photography in Sydney. Because of the special connections that I capture between the family members.
Sometimes it is hard to choose a location because Sydney offers a great variety of beautiful places. I always ask the family if they have a favourite location in mind, but if they don’t I always suggest some nice spots.
With Stephen’s family, we chose Gunners barracks in Mosman. This fantastic spot has a special meaning to this family, as Stephen and his gorgeous wife got married there. This place has some fantastic views over Sydney harbour.
Stephen’s little son – Jonathan was the center of attention the whole session. And who could have blamed me for that – little Jonathan is so cute! I wanted to squeeze those chubby cheeks the whole session.
It was a beautiful sunny end of the day, and I had some gorgeous light to work with as well as great models! Oh, Sydney’s sky is full of colours, especially during sunset.
Jonathan is a wonderful boy. He played all the time and we all had a lot of fun. My family photo sessions are a combination of posed and lifestyle shots – I want my clients to remember how they were on that particular day, especially families with such young kids. These sessions are not always “ perfect” in terms of posing and this is exactly how I want them to be. I capture the raw everyday life and connections between parents and their kids.
Jonathan was trying to make his first steps with the help of his mom. He was having such a good time.
It is such an honour to create memories for families and to know that after many, many years these families will open their albums and have these images to remember their moments.
Have a great time with Stephen’s family!
