This family was always going to introduce a little bit of chaos to things with 3 boys under 7 and a 6 month old girl in the mix. The mum described it to me as herding cats when the three boys are all together and she wasn’t far wrong! I had met them all previously as the little girl is born on the same day as my daughter, but never all of them at the same time. Having said that, the boys are fantastic – friendly, energetic, cheeky – and all with gorgeous blond hair.
We had already had to postpone this shoot twice – once due to all the rain we have been having in Sydney lately, and once due to a couple of the kids being sick. So third time was the charm and while it looked a bit touch and go in the morning, the afternoon was prefect and turned on some gorgeous late afternoon light for us
While the boys complained a couple of times about having photos taken, they still managed to find bridges to run across, trees to climb and water to play in. These boys don’t do anything by halves and were all soaked by the end. I seem to be getting into the habit of finding some water to be splashed around in at the end of a shoot!
