Whenever I get an enquiry for "just the kids" I always try to talk the parents into being in the photos as well, but with this session there was a very special reason that they weren't - it was a massive surprise for their Mum's birthday!
Pheobe, Ethan and Liam arrived after a last minute dash to the shops for new outfits, all very covert as they hid the entire photoshoot and planning from their mum who was at work on the day of the shoot.
The afternoon light in the studio gardens was absolutely perfect on the day of their shoot. We started with images on the stone steps, each of the kids having single portraits as well as a group photo as well.
At the bottom of my stone steps is a gorgeous large paperbark tree that catches the afternoon light beautifully, and was the next stop on the photoshoot adventure!
