A beautiful Family of four + a warm Autumn day in the Hills + colourful leaves everywhere = an amazing Family Session. 🙂


‘Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day.’

I had the pleasure to meet (and Photograph!) a gorgeous Family the other day. Meet Lisa and Adam and their two beautiful children.

There were so many people around, yet, as we started walking and playing with the kids, the rest of the world sort of blurred away in the background. So many leaves and so many wanders to discover around us.

I loved watching the kids mesmerized while Adam was showing them a little Acorn found on the ground among the leaves.

I loved everyone’s excitement when we started throwing leaves everywhere.

I loved the way parents and kids were interacting and looking at each others.

Lisa and Adam are also proud local Business owners: they run together ‘Waratah Organics’ in Upper Ferntree Gully, while Lisa is also a professional Kinesiologist at ‘Waratah Therapies’, based in Kallista, Vic.

Enjoy the photos! 🙂

These photos, for me, are just perfect.

They tell the most beautiful story: a story of love, a story of great beginnings, a story of adventures lived in real life and in first person.

I can see so much of everyone’s character and personality. No need to add subtitles, no need to add filters.

I feel honoured I was there. Not just as a professional, but also as a human: it’s amazing to see and feel family connections like this one.

What if it was you?

I don’t see why not.
