Family photos in Home hill – Brotto family

Lara and Jeff’s 2nd son Ben was a partner for the Home Hill Debutante Ball, so with all her boys looking very smart Lara thought she would take the opportunity to update her family photos. The tricky part was Ben needed to be at ball rehearsal at 4.30pm… this meant we couldn’t use the afternoons beautiful golden light. I traveled down to Home Hill the week before the shoot and scouted for locations. I grew up there and with my Mum and sister also on the case we had a few ideas. We needed shade, which is hard at 2pm but after driving around for an hour or so, travelling down roads that hold many childhood memories, we were sorted. On the day of the shoot we were incredibly lucky when the sun ducked behind a cloud, just for a few minutes, which allowed us to venture out of the shade and shoot on the epic Burdekin Bridge.
Lara was concerned about how the boys would feel at the shoot… teenage boys are not renowned for loving to have their photos taken but they were fantastic. I’m pretty sure they know how important photos are to their Mum so they did it for her. How lovely!

  • On my days off, this is where you will find me. At the moment I have eggplant, pumpkin, cucumber, chilli, herbs and even found a random rockmelon. I also buy zinnia, marigold, cosmos and sunflower seeds and scatter them everywhere. Every time I look all the flowers it makes me happy. This particular flower beds seeds came as a gift from @honeyatkinson. Best gift ever!!! Megan :)
  • After living here for 20 years I thought I knew Townsville... apparently not! This family surprised me with where we did this shoot. Can you pick where it was shot? I had no idea this place existed. Read all about it on the blog. Link in bio.

  • Kicking off the new year is the perfect time to focus on what you need to get you where you want to be. Your point of difference is that you are YOU! Business profile shots that tell your story should be top of the list. #2019isyouryear thanks @letsbereal_withkylie for choosing me to help tell your story.

  • I worked with @_thehuntinghouse and The Cathedral School of St Anne & St James Townsville last year on this Beyond the Gates campaign. It's rewarding to see our collaborative efforts in print in this months @pakmag_online. The grounds of the school are like  something out of a pop up story book. The school offers monthly tours if you'd like to take a closer look.
