Fair dinkum – this just gets better and better. I mean, how blessed am I? Beautiful families who clearly adore each other, laughter, shoulder rides, glorious golden sun, giggly bubbas, energetic boys and steep muddy hills – all the better to roll down over and over and over... preferably at the end of the shoot hehe.
Just when I thought my great respect and passion for photography couldn't possibly move or grow any further, the quest to perfect the family shoot, then do even better than my last perfect family shoot, is realised again and again. I could only ever have been happy perfecting my art, where all I would see was brilliant pearly-white smiles on faces both during the shoot and post-production, again and again. It is what it is and I am only as good as my last shoot. I'm so happy with that. I love that I no longer have to 'think' too much about it. The beautiful flow is there so I can just get busy playing with the kids, making clown faces to get them grinning, focusing on creativity, composition, candids, poses and capturing some really magical moments. My respect and passion only deepens with each release of the shutter. The world could end and I'd still be out there, just me and my canon, shooting away.
Meet the Gills – an engaging, caring, genuine family who I love hanging out with and who really appreciate my style. I always have a blast with them and I can guarantee a great workout running after Joshie and Hamish for the session. Thank God for the smartie cookie I say! Whoever invented that marvelous taste-bud sensation that keeps little boys still for 6.2347 minutes, I praise you!
Until next time. Enjoy. Comments welcome.
