In Home documentary session
So, I’m a bit of an introvert… and I’ve always felt like this was a bad thing, extroverts always seemed like they had the advantage. But I’ve recently come to the realisation that it is my introverted-ness (is there a real word for that?) that has allowed my photography style to develop into what it is today. I love to sit back and wait for moments to capture that might otherwise have gone unnoticed. I love the challenge of anticipating what is going to happen to ensure I’m in the right place to capture it. I’m not one to force interactions, I prefer to let things happen naturally and look for the little things. I can quietly let children warm up to me in family photography sessions so that everyone feels comfortable and it can all unfold naturally. I’ve come to realise that all of this is an asset, it helps me deliver photos that people don’t realise I’ve even taken or that helps them see themselves in a different way.
I had the pleasure of photographing Matt and Kat when they got married and as I've said before - it is always so lovely to be invited back to photograph their growing family. Little Alex is such an adorable boy, it took him all of 2 seconds to be standing right beside me curiously asking about my camera. So we spent some time hanging out in their home while Alex led the show, playing, reading books... and then headed to the local beach for a little play. Then I stayed for the evening routine - dinner, bath and bed. So many little moments for them all to look back on.
