On This Day. July 4th 2015…how can this session be three years ago already?! I’d been living in Melbourne for only 10 months and this was I think my 5th visit back to the Adelaide Hills since the move. It was a tough move for me and for my photography. All of my friends, my supporters, my SA family were back there and it was difficult for me to find my feet in Montmorency. Business was slow in Melbourne but it was still booming in Adelaide, especially because of all of the beautiful families who kept coming back to me to help see their children grow.
Sharnie, what can I say about this gorgeous woman and her incredible family?! We first met WAY back in something like 2012?? Possibly even 2011. I was trading as Sweet Memory Photography back then and running my monthly Baby Club photoshoots. Her girls were TINY and we just clicked. Every month they would visit my studio and we would play imaginations in the set ups I had created. We became friends, we laughed over the girls craziness, my Lily would climb all over me as I photographed them and Sharnie would tell me how excited the girls always were when it was visit Tiff Day and then they wouldn’t want to leave!
So when it came time to get the whole family in front of the camera again, of course any excuse to head back to Adelaide was a good one, but this time, little Man Thomas was on the scene. A brand new family member who sadly didn’t get to join in the Baby Club fun, but he was absolutely going to be part of their family photoshoot. The first as a family of 5.
We met on the family farm in the Adelaide Hills, shortly before the sun went down. Golden Hour, my favourite hour. The girls were completely adorable and SO excited to see me, seeing them was like seeing my own nieces and I am cool Aunty Tiff. Jasmine looking like her superhero self in her batman cape and Olivia and her big bright blue eyes and cheeky smile. Thomas…well what can I say about those cheeks, not to mention the deliciously adorable little suit he was in…welcome to the family little Man, oh I could cuddle you forever!!
We played games and had cuddles, they showed off with all their showing off abilities and I completely lapped it up. We hid amongst the trees, jumped on the four wheeler for a pose or two, ventured down the hill to the rail line and the then back up the hill for what is to this day, one of my absolute favourite photos I have ever taken.
Hutchinson Family, I know we have seen each other since this day and your family has grown by two more little feet, but a look back on memory lane is always fun for a Wednesday morning. Thank you for being one of the first families to welcome me back home and for continuing to do so as the years go by. I will never grow tired of photographing you all, and absolutely love my time with you and your little people. Jasmine and Olivia, It melts my heart completely that you miss me when I am gone and count down the days til we see each other again.
Happy Farm Day Family Photoshoot Anniversary guys. Much Love.
