This family photo shoot was a 50th birthday gift to the mother in these photos from the kids. How wonderful is that! I seriously can't think of a better gift, stopping time and creating tangible memories of a beautiful moment in this families life. It also turned out that it was Mother's Day and I didn't even realise until the day!
We started at their family home in South Brisbane with a game of Throw Throw Burrito.....yep that happened. Playing board games is this families past time so of course I suggested we capture this!
We then moved to the deck where I asked all about favourite memories of each family member which led to big laughs :D. From the deck we chilled on the bean bags on a beautifully manicured patch of grass in their backyard. The cat decided to join us which I never say no to! The light and tones were beautiful here so I snapped a few individual portraits which are always nice for teenagers and young adults to use for social media and professional profile photos.
From the family home, we went to a local park which was pretty busy due to it being Mother's Day so we found a small patch of grass and had a bit of fun. We even had time to get some cheeky parent photos which were so easy considering they were madly in love and super fun!
Lastly, I re-created a photo I saw back at the home of the kids when they were actually kids....try pick which photo that is ;)
