We had so much fun at this beautiful Sunset Maternity Photography session on the border of Albury Wodonga.
This family was simply fun. As you can see it took Kailen took a little time to warm up. Thats ok, kids can be shy especially when you have two people pointing big black things at your face! So we did some running, we let him play in the leaves and tried to not let him play in the mud haha.
But it’s fun to just get out and run around! Get away from the craziness of life and just enjoy some time together. These guys were enjoying time together as a family of three before number 4 arrived very soon!
That’s what these outdoor sessions are all about, getting outside and enjoying time together. We get your standard shots, you know, the one grandma loves of everyone looking at the camera… And I love those ones to! But I also love when we can play and have fun and pull silly faces and just be ourselves. I think this family got that down to a tee!
This session was a part of Teagan’s Work Experience week here at the studio. I think this was one of her favourite sessions because we got to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather as well. Sometimes I get stuck here in the studio and know I just need to get outside for some fresh inspiration. If you missed Teagan’s work experience week you’ll have to scroll back in our Facebook feed (click here to head to our Facebook Page) and watch some of our live videos that we did at some of the shoots! This involved moments of ‘ok you take the reigns Teagan, i’m going to do a Facebook LIVE!’. She was nervous at first claiming ‘she didn’t know what to do’ but her nerves calmed as I gave her a little push in the right direction (which you can here in the back of the video haha) and she took it from there! She is a natural and seriously had nothing to worry about! So together we came up with these beautiful shots that this family can enjoy forever. Love that this is a scenario where we all win. Family gets beautiful photos, Teagan learns heaps and steps up in responsibility and I learn about letting go and letting someone HAVE A GO! We sometimes just have to let people have a go and then be there to help if they are heading in the wrong direction. How else will we learn and grow?
Anyway, these are my thoughts down on blog so ignore me and let the photos speak for themselves! They say actions speak louder then words, I think photos speak even more then both! Shows such a beautiful story…
Leave me a comment with your favourite photo! Do you like sun flare or more natural?
Much love, Kelsey & Teagan
