I was fortunate to be able to get permission to photograph this family on a farm in the Adelaide Hills, overlooking dams and rolling hills and the setting sun! There were large gums on the property and we used these to frame this photo. This photo will look fabulous on a large canvas or framed and matted print and will be a landscape photo as well as a family portrait.
Having never had family photos before they were nervous about what to expect but they didn't need to be. They were lots of fun and the children are full of life and spark - they may have got it from their Mum! Some typical pulling funny faces pics were taken because...well...that's just what kids do don't they?!
There was a nice farm gate we were able to use as a feature in some of the photos and grazing cattle in the valley added a great element.
The family chose soft blue and neutral based tones for their family photos. Choosing a scarf in the tone of the shoot can add a 'pop' colour that really helps lift an outfit and blend all the colours together well.
We laughed a lot at this shoot. It may have been their first family photo shoot but I certainly hope it's not their last!
