This shoot was so much fun. The Fregons are the most lovely people and the children are just gorgeous and full of life.
I had met Matt a couple of months prior as he had come to me to create some corporate headshots for him. So, it was lovely to connect again, and meet the rest of the family and capture a collection of family portraits for them.
After visiting their home and helping them choose what to wear, we met at Waverley Reserve in the afternoon just before golden hour. It's a very beautiful spot with lots of different areas where the kids can run around and still be contained. Which is very helpful especially when they're full of energy! Of course this is normal and all part of what makes outdoor family sessions fun. They're really about family time, connecting with each other, having fun together and getting a bit silly. I simply try to document that whilst also knowing what the family would like captured. In this case, Matt said he really wanted a photo with them all together that captured their connection as a family and some individual shots of the children to put on their wall at home. They grow up so fast!
I was really happy I was able to capture these for the Fregons. It's often difficult for parents to capture photographs of their children where they're not pulling a face! I always like to capture a mix of classic and candid shots because it's nice to have both. One that's full of that person's unique expression and one where you can see their soul shining out of their eyes.
Thanks for reading and if you would like me to create a collection for your family, please get in touch here.
