Family portrait session - Melbourne

Wow, an entire month has passed and I've been too quiet on here!!  This is when I'm supposed to say I've made a New Year's resolution to blog promptly, right?!  :)  

December was a fun month that included a number of large families.  The holidays usually provide a great excuse to get together and celebrate.  When Susan contacted me to set up a photo session with all of her kids, their spouses and a grandbaby - I knew I was in for a treat!  Our original plan was to go to the beach.  I know of a great location with sandy dunes where it's relatively quiet.  We watched the weather all week in hopes of a perfect day for it; however, that was not the case.  When photo day arrived, it was windy and cloudy with occasional rain.  That's okay!  One of the keys to a good photo session is flexibility and being able to roll with the changes.  After some phone calls back and forth we changed the game plan to a park that was more inland, but still provided some natural beauty.

This family was such a delight to be around.  Their coordinated colors and easy smiles made my afternoon so much fun.  

We had plenty of time to capture some photos of individual couples.  Aren't these two stunning?!

And this cute, little peanut . .  .I could capture pictures of her all day long.  What a doll!!

So, don't let the weather ruin your photo session.  It might still be doable with the right location.  Let's get together and capture some memories!
