“We didn’t realise we were making memories, we were just having fun!”
Family Photography is not supposed to be something you ‘have to do’, it should be fun!! It should be about you spending time away from house work, chores, computers, phones and all those other distracting things and just having fun with your family. Generally this will involve chasing light, or in the case of these guys, jumping fences to chase light. Its ok, no one caught us! hehe. I also love a good muck around with confetti and bubbles (Kmart you rock for bubbles and confetti!). I love the faces that the kids get when I say I have a surprise in my bag for them, it’s truly priceless!
The weekend just past I headed on a little road trip with my finance Caleb to visit his parents in Echuca. With a busy wedding season, lots of family sessions in time for Christmas and lots of little bubs coming into the studio i’ve had a super busy past few months. So it was really nice to take a break. We headed down through Benella and then to Shepparton where Caleb let me go a little bit loose in a few Op Shops (Vinnies was my favourite in Shepparton). Op Shops are my favourite place to shop! You just never know what you’ll find. And Caleb is so patient waiting there for me. This time we even found him a pair of shorts! Anyway, we made our way to Echuca and enjoyed an even of cooking (Caleb’s dad is an amazing cook!), a few drinks, sunshine and then we settled around the fire listening to Jack Johnson play in the background. It was simply bliss. Just to relax, chat, laugh, eat.
Favourite Jack Johnson song is definitely ‘Better Together’
Just might find their way into my dreams tonight
But I know that they’ll be gone
When the morning light sings
And brings new things
For tomorrow night you see
That they’ll be gone too
Too many things I have to do
But if all of these dreams might find their way
Into my day to day scene
I’d be under the impression
I was somewhere in between
With only two
Just me and you
Not so many things we got to do
Or places we got to be
We’ll sit beneath the mango tree now
We’re somewhere in between together
So what do you do in your family fun time? Do you hang out with other families maybe? Go for a picnic (cant go wrong with a good cheese platter, lets be honest)? Or down to the park?
The more we do this the more we find ‘we didn’t realise we were making memories, we were just having fun!’
Enjoy some fun moments from this session!
Much love, Kelsey xx

Oh and P.S – I am so excited to be getting married at the end of November this year!!! Caleb and I have been together for over 5 years and I cant wait to call him my husband. But this means that there are very limited spots for sessions over the next few months. Especially family sessions as all of my weekends are just about booked out! So if you want some family photos for Christmas make sure you get in touch soon! I’d love to hear from you 🙂
