Louise, Bruce, Hamish & Phoebe

271-Beyer-18-copy

We go back a long way! I photographed Louise and Bruce’s wedding back when wedding photography was something I did! I remember it was a fun filled day out at Marions Vineyard, with a trip down to the jetty and lots and lots of laughs.When we started looking for Families for our next Faces of Launceston projects, Louise was one of the first to get on board and it was a great pleasure to see them again and to make a new set of pictures for them.  Looking through the house, it was great to see the pictures that I had done for them so many years ago, on display and taking pride of place in their lounge room.When asked to tell us something about their family, Louise wrote this:

Parenting at an older age due to close to 10 years ivf. Kids very close in age and one with an autism spectrum disorder! Every day is a challenge!

All I know is that the photoshoot was anything but a challenge. we had a beautiful day and decided to use the big old tree in the front yard as our location. In the swing, up the tree and around the tree gave us so many different backgrounds, and we ended up with a wonderfull selection of images that really showed the love and closeness that typifies this family’s relationship with each other. We were lucky to be able to include Louise's mum in some of the shots, and the wonderful relationship  that  exists in this extended family was obvious for all to see.For this family, these images will join the earlier ones to re-enforce that feeling of belonging that is so vital to all of us.

Young Adults

 

Life has become so busy that very few photographs are being made at home any more, especially if you discount the images being made for Facebook and other such web communities. This is the moment when they are perched ready to fly off into their own lives. University or work is just around the corner, and it won’t be long before they are moving out. Whether it is just around the corner or to the other side of the country, now is the time to capture a family portrait and to stop time still, if only for just a moment.

Best time for baby photographs?

Best time for baby photographs?

THE FIRST YEAR

In the first year, time seems to speed up and slow down all at the same time. Days roll into one amid late night feeds, day time sleeps ,and an amazing number of nappy changes. Every day there are ground breaking moments: the first smile, the first sleeping through the night, first steps, words, and teeth. Let us capture these moments that are the initial stages of a journey of a lifetime.

Slices of Life -Photographing Children

Slices of Life -Photographing Children
Childhood
 
Both parents and children have to adjust to the influences of school, and it is a bitter sweet period for the parents as you realise that your child now has a part of their life in which you are not involved. They are learning new skills and wanting to use them, and it is much easier for your photographer to build a relationship and to capture those special expressions and moments. At this stage, we ask the parents to take a step back so that the photographer has a chance to engage with the child in one-on-one conversation. Once this is happening, all those emotions and expressions are never far behind.
