Close Family

family photographyLara SavageComment

Last year i spent a week photographing the children at my our daycare centre as a fundraiser. It was such an amazing experience to spend time with all the children and see such different personalities traits in all of them. Some were very aware of me and my camera and kept their distance while others bear tackled me and begged for me to take more photos with every different expression.

Lila was one of the ones that steered clear but seemed inquisitive from a distance, i couldn't get her to smile though (which i assure you is a rare occurrence) so i was a little worried when her mum Mel contacted me for a session. However In the comfort of family and the ocean all kids were all smiles and we had a great morning at Merewether. Mel was also halfway through her pregnancy with Baby #4. What an amazing brave lady! (i may be a little envious ;)

Baby Beau

Beau is the lucky third addition to the beautiful family of one of my oldest friends. I love that I was able to capture this moment in her life. Nicky is a photographer herself at Two Little Owls Photography and the family photo duties often fall on her to take snaps of her growing family. This also means that there are limited opportunities for her to actually be IN the photos which is why I'm so glad that I was able to take these photos for her.

Between her three boys and my two I can't wait to see what mischief these boys get into in the years to come! Watch this space!! xx

Baby Isla

I felt very honoured to be asked to photograph little Isla. I have known her mum, Kathryn for probably over 25 years and she is one of my sisters best and oldest friends :) So this was quite special for me. Humphrey their dog did try to steal her thunder and managed to find his way into lots of photos and I know that they will grow up being great little buddies.
