Cazz is an amazing photographer who realised that she was absent from many of her family photos. Lots of mums are, because we are often the ones taking all the photos. When Mum is also a photographer though, it happens even more often! We joke that our kids will look back at family photos and wonder why mum didn’t come to the beach / zoo / park / holiday! But joking aside, it is so important to have photos of the whole family together, that we can look back on and laugh about and smile about all the wonderful memories we have created. I was so happy (and nervous) to be able to photograph Cazz with her boys. They are an absolutely beautiful family, so full of love and with such a strong connection between them all. I think that is quite evident in these photos. This is a bit of a marathon post, but I found it so hard to choose!
We started our afternoon setting out along a trail in a beautiful National Park. While the boys ran ahead Cazz, Grant and I stopped for a couple of photos along the track.
The boys set off exploring and we could hear them laughing in the quiet forest. We thought about calling them back but decided to find them and I am so glad we did. They had discovered a beautiful clearing amongst the trees and it was the perfect location for our shoot.
The bond these 3 beautiful boys share with their parents is amazing. I think I also managed to capture their individual personalities too!
There was a huge fallen tree to climb, and the perfect sticks to make bows and arrows.
The clearing was covered in a blanket of the most spectacular red leaves.
As the sun went down we made our way up to the top of the mountain to take in some spectacular views. Thankyou Cazz, Grant and boys for being so much fun! I hope you enjoyed being in the photos for once Cazz, instead of behind the lens.
