Well, the weather gods were really on our side this afternoon! I was jumping for joy all day long at the sight of the sunshine and the warmth of the Spring breeze.
The Papworth Family were so much fun to photograph along the banks of the Yarra River in Eltham, biggest Brother Baxter was the master stick finder and every time I turned around he had found a new bigger and better one than the last. Miss Ivy, the classic middle child, cheekiest of cheeky smiles, sweetest little voice and a big fan of the squeaky bumble bee attached to my camera. Tiny little Stella only had eyes for Mum, I certainly had my work cut out for me with this little one, but I had plenty of tricks up my sleeve to find her happy…and when I did, of the sweetness in her eyes ❤
Donna and Rob are the loveliest people you will ever meet, always with a smile, so much love for their gorgeous children, who were keen for adventure! Whilst I always promise adventure, I am a little bit of a tease and make them wait so long, but you really wouldn’t know it with these three because their miles continued, their excitement stayed with us and everything I asked of them, they happily obliged.
Walking along the river, it was beautiful and warm, you wouldn’t be silly to even mistaken the day for a Summer one, not Spring, the perfect late afternoon to photograph a family. I caught a glimpse of Baxter’s future in modelling, with quite the entertaining walk through the park, miss Ivy followed along in true little sister style and mimicked Baxter perfectly.
Thank you so much Donna, Rob, Baxter, Ivy and Stella for spending your afternoon with me, for choosing me as your family photographer. I haven’t had so much fun behind the camera in a while and I can honestly say, I would photograph you all again in a heart beat!
