I seldom do lifestyle portraits for families, but I made an exception to this. Why? Well, a family friend I guess and this family is just awesome, lots of passion! Here are some of the images captured in Bunbury, Western Australia.
Wendy & Jon Dixon approached me for a photo session for a a full page adverts in multiple newspaper publication. They wanted to portray a lifestyle feel to the ad that involves surfing ( Jon's passion ). They were recommeded by a fantastic web and graphic designer, Andrew Jabs from minefield and another client of mine. Andrew did a great job putting it together and Wendy was brilliant giving me such detailed description on what she was after. That helps alot to know what they were after. Although I am just specialising on weddings, engagements, fashion and lifestyle portraits, I have taken this project up as it relates to lifestyle portraits. Love how it turns out with Andrews help. If you are looking for a fantastic web designer in the South West, Andrew's the man!! :)
Let me know what you think? :)
Taj & Hayden - Lifestyle Portraits
Location : Koombana Beach, Bunbury, WA.
I have done a few family portraits at Koombana beach, a nice and convenient location for kids with a nice playground. I like this location, besides being convenient for me, just slightly over 8 mins drive from home, is the beach being a safer place for kids to be in the water.
We moved to the side of the beach as I didnt want to get a busy background of people walking around. Hayden was such a nice boy and photogenic as well. He have the patience to be still and allow me to take shots of him. Taj was a little mysterious, he is kinda camera shy at first, but went on to run around and got warmed up for the session. He has a very strong personality I like the shot of him swinging the bucket. Blythe, their mum was so patient and helped me out a lot to make their kids happy for the photos. ( Thanks Blythe ).
The shoot I think was probably close to 2 hours, hm.. cant really recall for some reason. Anyways, hope you guys enjoy the photos and please feel free to comment on the photos. cheers :)
