It was one of those Sydney mornings where the weather could go either way. There were blue skies in one direction, rain clouds in another. We had all been looking forward to updating the family photos since I had last taken their photos right before little sister made an appearance. On Saturday, we had planned photos at home in the garden and then a stroll down to the Glebe foreshore for a casual shoot by the water. But by the time I arrived at their gorgeous new terrace in Glebe, the rain had set in. Since everyone was dressed we altered our plan and used the front balcony as our backdrop huddling under the overhang to shield us from the rain. Wrangling two boys and a one year old to stay dry and in one place is no easy task. But these fun spirited parents employed tickling and funny faces which did the trick! The result was relaxed family shots that capture genuine emotion, love and connection. Once the rain let up, the kids took the lead playing in the rock garden and teaching little sister that rocks and flowers weren’t for eating! When little sister had enough she made a quick escape out the front gate where she found the sunshine and more fallen flowers. We ended the session with some lovely backlit shots on the footpath with cuddles all around. Our Glebe foreshore portion of the session will happen in a few weeks pending good weather. I can’t hardly wait!
