Dad, dad… Once more! Come on, do it again. Dad trudged over, soaking wet, ankle deep in the massive puddles surrounding the footy…
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
There was still half a pizza left in the box and we were still surprised that our little sheltered spot out of the wind had stayed relatively sand free.
The water was getting closer and it was getting dark quickly. None of us cared, the conversation was flowing and we were all kid free for an hour or two – we could talk in peace.
I had just finished photographing
“Holy freakin’ s@#t, it’s cold!” I was yelling inside my head while tip toeing from the steps into the ocean pool. Mum and Dad were in earshot and I wanted them to stay proud while pointing my way to their swimming friends – “Yes, that’s our eldest son, Andrew,” they boasted, “he’s visiting.”
I’m unsure whether it’s the same for girls as it is boys when entering cold water. For boys, there comes a point as the cold water travels slowly up the thigh when it’s do or die. It’s either get in or get out because entering slowly just prolongs the anxiety of cold, retreating tackle.
Anyway… I made it all the way in, finished two laps and told dad I’m
I don’t want to write another blog post all about the importance of family photos, what they mean once you have them, what they will mean in the future… I’ve said it all before and you’ve probably heard it all before.
I thought instead, I’d share a few photos from a
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
I loved the quirkiness of this little family portrait photography session. Mum and Dad vowed not to be in any photos and hadn’t…
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?
This morning I had the pleasure of joining my Mum and Dad for their early swim at Mona Vale baths – something they religiously do each day and I’m so glad I had my camera with me. I’m pretty sure this is where they are both at their happiest and I was there to record a little of that happiness.
I’ve know Shayne for 25 years (gosh, that make me feel old) and together we’ve been each others bridesmaids and watched our kids grow up.
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.
I was sorting and cataloguing some images when I came across a few photos that I wanted to share. I am always going on about how important photos are and the amount of joy that images, especially of our loved ones can bring. Below are a few of these special photos to me – photos that instantly bring a smile to my face and literally warm me from the inside.
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.
