Sibling Session - North Brisbane Portrait Photographer
Every so often I have a break from photographing young children and take a booking that is just full of adults. These shoots excite me because it is a chance to work a little differently, and a challenge to entice natural, genuine smiles from people that wont just laugh because you say the word "Undies".
Ooh - did you smile then? I actually did as I wrote it! #bigkidatheart
So this session was booked with the plan to capture photos for Josephine and Billys' mother, a sibling session that Josephines partner Sam kind of "gatecrashed". In the nicest most welcome way possible!
It was a balmy afternoon at Bunya Reserve, loads of families and dogs enjoying cooling off in the river.
We pushed a few of them out of the way as we took over a walking track for some beautiful group photos to start the session.
With the reserve so busy it made sense to head to a quieter area for the next set, and this particular spot had a lovely dark background that looked amazing in black and white, helped as well by the fact that these three were wearing black and white too. I loved the smooth velvet feel of these images.
Josephine was in her element pirouetting in her very cute dress as Sam twirled her in a dance, it was really sweet!
With the light coming through the trees I had the idea to create a tall-ways panorama (I am sure there is a real term for this, possibly just.... panorama) and to add a bit of fun at the bottom of the frame Josephine hopped up and held herself on the boys shoulders. I love this so much!
As we headed to the next spot I ran ahead to capture some candid walking photos, which the boys started having a laugh by skipping with jazz hands and silly faces.
We finished the session on the boardwalk and since they were in the mood to goof around a little we did some tuck jumps! Always a good laugh these shots!
It was such a great afternoon out and I know their mum will love her birthday surprise!
