A sneak preview of some of the photos from this recent family session.  This entire session took place in their home. I love when I’m invited into homes to photograph families. Home sessions have a very different feel to sessions on location. You can leave your washing on the line & your toys on the floor, I don’t mind… as long as you are willing to play dress ups and whole heartedly sing ‘Let it Go’ for me, then you will make my day.

Sharing these pictures has been a long time in the making because we had a lot of fun playing with ideas and ended up with a lot of precious photos. A few years ago I shared Olivia & Michaels lifestyle maternity session when they were expecting their first baby, Xavier. There are a couple of sessions on this blog of Xavier as a baby too. It was pretty special to photograph them in the next stage of their lives, expecting a sibling for Xavier and then the arrival of a new baby brother.

We spent the weekend in Newcastle with Pete’s side of the family.. his brothers, parents, sisters in law, our niece & 3 nephews…. to celebrate our niece Indriel turning 3. To begin with I just snapped a few special moments with my iphone. I left my big camera in the car because I try to balance out how often I use it, so that my children & nieces & nephews don’t look back & remember me as the mother/aunt who was hidden behind a giant black lens at every family gathering. However, after the lunch & the birthday cake & the afternoon tea had all happened, there was this moment where everyone was gathered in my sister & brother in laws back yard.  No one was rushing off because we had all made the decision to stay over night. The children were all happy & shouting “hey Uncle Pete, Uncle Pete! throw me higher uncle Pete!” as they jumped on the trampoline. The kids swapped between jumping & swinging & playing catch with a lemon. One year old Casper was being pushed around the yard in a little car (and loving it). I was surrounded by our family in an afternoon of pure play and I realised that when Ava was a baby & she was the first in our family, we had dreamed that maybe one day there would be afternoons just like this. Afternoons with play & cousins & grandparents & fun. Afternoons where we hang out as the sun goes down, just enjoying these wonderful little people in our family. We have been blessed to have these kinds of afternoons on quite a few occasions over the years now, but every single one is precious. So the big camera came out of the car. I’m happy to be the crazy camera lady if it means capturing a little of an afternoon like this.
