Celebrating a milestone birthday brought this lovely Upper Hutt family together, meeting at Aston Norwood Gardens for their photo session. Such a great place for the kids to run about and for the whole family to enjoy a casual outdoor setting together. Normally we begin with semi-formal shots of family then move through into the casual lifestyle shots where everyone has fun.
Classic black and white photographs capture a bit of the nostalgia of photography, and can focus on the emotions rather than the setting so you will often have these included in your photo sessions.
These kids really were amazing! They played so well together and looked like they were having a lot of fun. Their photo session took place before lunch on a warm sunny day so we were very lucky with the amount of shade to assist us from harsh lighting and to cool down under.
A surprise cuddle from Grandad!!
Witnessing the bond between family members and then capturing it is a privilege. When families first view their photo albums it can be quite emotional seeing moments captured and frozen in time. My hope is the family album will be talked over, looked at and treasured even more as the years go by for every one of the families I photograph.
As you can see, my assistant also helped in capturing some fun shots too!
And those beautiful smiles! Then off to Aston Norwood café to renew energy levels!
Thanks so much for allowing me to photograph your lovely family!
