So I was planning on writing more blogs over January, but you know. I haven't. Instead we've been spending our days at the pool, making biscuits, making crazy art, finding every toy in the house and spreading them everywhere. You know what school holidays look like? You think you've got more time then you do - then you remember you've got kids and they kind of need entertaining occasionally!
So, onto my next blog post. I've known this family since our oldest 2 kids were brand newbies and Tegan and I were in mother's group together. When we met at mothers group, we then remembered we'd actually sat for those really fun 2 hours together in the waiting room at the pathology while doing the Glucose Tolerance Test. From memory, Tegan quite liked that gross sugary liquid. I think I did pretty well not to throw it back up again (damn morning sickness)! During those 2 hours we talked and discussed many things, baby names being one of them.
This is actually the 4th time I've photographed them. I first photographed these guys just after the twins were born. Tegan very kindly let me practice some of my early in-home photography on her family. Then they booked me late 2016 for a family and farm business shoot. I also did some behind the scenes photos for an ad they were making for one of their businesses. I should note, Tim and Tegan run Hicks Country Beef where they deliver the tastiest beef around! They are also co-founders of Cultivate Farms. Because 4 kids just isn't busy enough!!
So I was pretty chuffed when Tegan booked me again, for family and farm photos in late 2017. These guys are such a great family to photograph. This time we headed out to the property they are currently leasing for their stock, with some pretty amazing views of the Hume Weir in the background. Not a bad way to spend an evening!
