A Happy Family

When the McCormicks asked me to do a family photoshoot for them I was stoked.
Besides their obvious good looks ( You may recognize Simon from the Billboards from a photoshoot I did for Alfa )
they are just an inspiring family that so many around them look up to.

The 3 boys are all so different but all so so beautiful inside and out.
At such a young age, they are already the most gentleman boys you ever meet.
I remember Issac the eldest giving me his chair at a cafe because his is more comfortable.
I remember Dylan the middle one, giving me a big hug during a rough patch last year saying he heard that I was sad.
And Caleb the youngest one, how can you resist that smile.

Ive always wondered what parenting secrets Peta and Simon have to have raised
such beautiful souls who love god and people.

Just look at them. I seriously teared up editing these photos especially the one of Peta and Simon looking
at each other. That same gaga/in love look that I see and capture at weddings, its still there, 15 years down the track…..
Ahhhh Im getting teary again! I feel so happy when I see and capture happy families!


A Mothers Love

The other day I was having coffee with 2 of my beautiful friends who both have 3 children
and we all started getting a bit teary talking about our mothers and how amazing it is that
god created and blessed us with such a nurturing bond. No matter where we are at in life,
there are times when we just want our mum.

I had the privilege to take these beautiful family shots for my Sister in Law just weeks
before her Mum went to be with God. We nearly cancelled the shoot as it was storming hours
before but I knew that God wanted us to have this photoshoot and then something amazing happened,
the sun came out. I hope that these images will bring back beautiful memories & happiness every time
they look at them.

On Mothers day we celebrate a Mothers love. For some of us we have the priviledge to tell our mums
as we dont show are appreciation often enough. For those who dont get to tell them,
I am confident that they already know how much we love them.

A Mothers love is forever and no matter where they are,
they will always be watching over us. I wish a happy mothers day to my beautiful mum
and to all the amazing mums who are here with us and in spirit.
