This is one of my favourite photos I’ve captured this year. It was shot at Terrigal Beach, where I spend many mornings and an occasional afternoon walking, talking and coffee shopping with Linda… my number one. This photo was uncommissioned, wasn’t shot on one of my professional cameras and there are
We weren’t really aware of just how big a project the 2014 Kids of the Coast was going to be at the start but we always had high hopes of producing a beautiful hard cover book filled with gorgeous portraits of Central Coast kids in an attempt to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
The fight against breast cancer holds special significance for
Do you know a plumber with a leaking tap, a builder with an incomplete house or a painter with unfinished walls? I think I fit into that category as a photographer without enough photos of my kids. Especially so as they’ve reached their teenage years and it’s just not “cool” to have your photo taken by your dad.
Sure it’s fine if they’re snap chatting, posting to “insti” or Facebooking but it’s a whole different story if
I had to share some of these photos of my little nephew Luca after wrangling my brother and his wife from the Norther Beaches to experience a Central Coast portrait photography session amongst the rocks and puddles at Terrigal. I’m so glad I had the chance to capture these photos, especially after harping on about
When someone calls us at Impact Images to book a portrait photography shoot, we answer lots of questions and give loads of advice and cover topics and questions like:
- The best time of the day
- Different locations
- What to wear
- What to bring to the shoot
- What happens after the photo session?
Here is a little family shoot awaiting collection from the studio. I was just looking through the ordered prints and here are the images that Shari and Abe chose of their little darlings.
Impact Images Newcastle is running a special offer with BUBs baby store at the Rutherford Super Centre – spend in store to receive a photography gift certificate.
The certificate entitles you to a photo session for your precious little ones or the whole family, plus a professionally printed enlargement. We have been overwhelmed by the response and its wonderful to be meeting so many local families.
A good mate of mine, Troy, had only ever had his children photographed by shopping centre studios and when he mentioned that Jill was keen to get some photos of their youngest daughter, Mena, and was looking at the the same style of photography they had experienced in the past I twisted their arm into trying something different with me this time round.
The McEnearney’s have a wonderful waterfront home and were after some candid photos around their property.
Chelsea and Charlotte were just delightful in their pink skirts, and despite being way past Chelsea’s bedtime, she was definitely in the spirit of things once the bubbles came out.
I was having a conversation with a friend of mine, Karen, who enjoys photography as a hobby and although she isn’t interested in pursuing it as a profession she was asking what I think is the one single thing is that separates an amateur from a professional portrait photographer?
This was a beautiful portrait shoot with a beautiful family. I’m not going to add much more but hope you enjoy the photos. The image at the top of the post is now framed and hanging in their home and I am 100% certain that anytime the family or any of Nathan and Lynette’s friends see it, they won’t be able to hold back a smile. How can you not be drawn into the happiness these images show.
As I posted last week, portraits are just so valuable and cherished by anyone that takes the simple step of actually booking a shoot. Here are a few more examples from recent shoots both studio and outdoors – all of which are bringing warmth and smiles to families around the Coast. Do yourself a favour and book in your very own portrait session and capture some beautiful images of a time that you will never get back again.
Holidays and long weekends are a pretty standard time to get together with family and this weekend was no different for us. My brother Dave with his wife and children plus my parents came up from Sydney for Sunday lunch. Although it would have been nice to have the rest of the family here we all still had a great time together.
Recently I was asked to take some photos of the extended Fidler family as a surprise gift for their mum’s 60th birthday present. The aim of the shoot was to get some photos that show all the family so I went ahead and took a series of photos, some directed and some less so that the family could choose from.
It seems there are never enough hours in the day and I guess it’s exactly the same for everyone these days. I for one am amazed at just how quickly time has been flying since my two boys were born. I’m sure the days get shorter and time quicker as they get older.
I was looking through the blog and realised that I have been neglectful in posting some portrait images. We’ve been flat chat at the studio and on location, having a ball capturing good times with lots of different families over the past few months.
I spend so much time photographing and showing images of other families, I thought I’d share a couple of photos I took this morning of my family.
Spring is most certainly on its way, the grass was soft and green and the afternoon sun warm and toasty! A perfect afternoon for a family photo-shoot as the kids hammed it up playing in the grass.
I was preparing these two portraits from today for viewing and thought I’d share a couple of my favourite images. It struck me as funny how the main aim of most parents when they come in for kids portraits is to get them smiling in every shot.
One of the main question we are asked when families, usually mums, are booking a family portrait session is whether they should go for a studio or an outdoor session. Our answer at the studio: it depends.
The first thing we need to know before helping with the choice is the age of the youngest child in the family. If that little family member isn’t able to sit up on their own then a studio shoot is usually the best choice otherwise they spend most of their time with a face in the sand, water, grass or a blanket while the older kids are having a great old time in the outdoors – not really fair or conducive to a good family photo.
