kim and keeley { aka the super k's! } a creative session

One day a photographer was out driving in the rain when she saw a location, a wet and dismal place with mud and dead trees and that photographer thought "What a great place for a photo shoot". And that photo shoot idea bounced around in her head so much she had to shoot it to make room for other images in her head. And thats how this session kind of came about...

I always try to do a couple of creative sessions each year, just to let the inner artist have a play. A play date for me and my trusty 5D Mkiii. I learnt so much from this session and I think Im going to have to do it again really soon.

I had two fabulous models, Kim and Keeley, who hadnt modelled before and I'm sure they wondering on the day what was going on ( my assistant had to call in sick and there was an equipment disaster too ). They both did an amazing job and Im hoping once the weather starts warming up again they will both come out and have another go.

indi and rhylan { a location session }

Miss Serious! Indi was in swimming lessons with my daughter Jade, and she loves the water, LOVES it, so she was so happy and smiley at swimming lessons. Not the same at our photo shoot. Look at that face! Her big brother Rhylan had his solo shoot when he was a baby, and he was being such a good big brother for this session.

ella and harry { a woodland teaparty }

Ella and Harrys mum was super organised bought the most amazing props to our styled teaparty session. The styled setup was for both the kids so we used lots of timber and green so it wasnt too girly, and lots of bunny rabbits and a squirrel made an appearance too. Ella and Harry were the perfect little models, totally adorable and just such happy little people.

kilarny { a sweet dreams session }

Im so in love with this session. My new little prop bed is one of two, its sister is a white metal bed that would work for boys and girls, this one is best for girls just because of its pretty hand painted blue flowers. We were watching the sun go down behind the trees and the mozzies were trying to eat Kilarny for dinner, but I always carry insect repellant in my camera bag, so we set up the bed in the middle of a paddock and made some beautiful shots. Kilarny was such a cute model, with all those gorgeous curls and her beautiful smile.

some of my favourite props : bikes and trikes and dolly prams

Trikes and bikes are best for the age where they cant actually pedal, or I spend half the session looking at their back through my camera as they pedal away from me!

All the ones in this photo are from my collection of props... Im going to need more storage soon but if I see a good bike or dolly pram at a good price I have to have it.
