there is only one thing more enjoyable that outdoor family photography sessions... making the photos even more adorable in post production. that's exactly what I have been doing today, finishing this family's editing. you can hardly call it work.
So exciting to see some warmer weather coming through. For me it means my outdoor sessions are once again enjoyable and more possible. Weekends book up quickly in the summer months, so make sure you get in nice and early if you are waiting to book a session. I personally like to update our family portraits with a formal session every couple of years. It's one of the few times we can actually all be in a photo together. Kids change so quickly too, it's awesome to be able to look back on the photos to see how far we have come.
The photos below are my latest work, taken at the Auckland Botanical Gardens whilst on a workshop run by Australian photographer Rikki-Lee. It's always good to learn from others and to see how they use a particular location. #findyourglowwithrikki-lee. For me the maternity side was inspiring. have mostly worked with families in the outdoors, but having now had first hand experience shooting a maternity session in a park, I'm inspired and can't wait to do more.
