It was a beautiful warm morning in February when the Powell family and I met at Wollongong Botanic Gardens to document their family, their connection and their moments. At first, as with most families and children, it was a bit "smile and look at the camera" like but after I told them to "shake it out and relax" and we started getting to know one and other, having a good joke and laugh is when we started to capture some magic. Fletcher was not to keen on wanting to be held which made family portraits a bit of a challenge and we did get a couple but these images of everyone just interacting and being themselves is what makes my heart sing in family photography. Thank you Powell family for allowing me to capture your family in 2016. If you would like to know more or book a fabulous personalised family photography session with me click here.
