A family haven in the bush.

One thing I love about living and working in the Blue Mountains is that I keep getting to see new places, and meet new people. When planning a family photo session, we talk about things your family likes to do, and what is special to you about your family, or places you like to be together.

Jane and Amyas are slowly transforming a barren bush block into a bushland haven for their kids, and their chooks. Plant by plant, stone by stone. It seemed only natural¬† that our photo session would take place where their family felt comfortable, that allowed their energetic boys to run freely, and was their ‘happy place’ that they want to capture for the future.

Having a new member in the family, and a milestone birthday just passed, it was the perfect time to capture the family in this point in time. The boisterous play of the boys, and the gentle snuggly bub, loving, engaged parents. We had a ball.

As a photographer I get to catch a glimpse of many kinds of people,given a window into their lives. As much as I am giving of my gift so families can hold on to their memories with images, I too get a gift every time. From observing this family together I could see how free Jane and Amyas are to be totally present with their children, to be in their world. To jump off rock ledges and speed along on scooters joyfully, enjoying the moment. It inspired me as a mother to continue working on just being present with my two girls, before they are all grown up and I wish for these moments to return. For moments of play, laughter and cuddles. Thank you.
