So following on from my last blog, on the same weekend as I photographed Bec and her husband, I also photographed Carris of Captivated Photography and her family in an in-home session on the same weekend! How lucky am I?!
In late 2016, Carris contacted me to photograph her family, at that point a family of 4. Since then we've become friends, and catch up on a semi regular basis for coffee or dinner with several other local photogs. So I was pretty chuffed when she asked me if I could photograph her family for an in-home session after her son was born!! Of course I would!
We had such a fun session, and my usual 1 - 1.5 hour session went out the window - I think I was there for almost 2.5 hours! But when there's so much to do, and play, and talk. We started inside, ended up running around the house on makeshift blanket sleds, outside for some sandpit action, and back inside for pancakes - of course I'm going to stick around and keep taking photos!!!
These guys were so much fun to photograph. There is something quite different in photographing another photog and their families. They 'get' what we're trying to achieve, often without direction - and photographers kids? Well they're generally so used to a camera being in their face all day, they I don't think they even notice it most of the time!!
Needless to say this gallery was quite a big one!
