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!

  • After 10 days on the Sunshine Coast it's good to be home. I was lucky enough to do a family shoot at Mudjimba Beach while I was there. This is one of my favourite shots.

  • This family walk this beach most afternoons. They have their special spots along the way – the log that the kids balance along and the rocks. They enjoy watching the kids play while the sky turns from blue to purple to pink. In years to come when they look at these images hopefully they will remember not only the day we did the shoot but also all the other days they were there as a family. Hopefully they will remember how it felt to be there.

  • A little something to think about during the festive season.
  • Baby Sadie has arrived and Asta is bursting with joy. Look at the excitement on that gorgeous little face.
  • Tis the season for family visiting. It’s a great opportunity to document the love you share. We have limited spots left for the holiday season so get in quick :)
  • When I photographed Sophie as a 3 year old she had all the moves so I knew she was going to be incredible to shoot for her graduation. She's simply stunning!
  • When I first met Teal to chat about her graduation photoshoot I thought her Mum looked familiar... turns out I photographed Teal when she was about 1. How time flies (and how old do I feel). This was the last shot of the day and is my favourite!

  • The good thing about having a sister who is a photographer is she takes photos of your kids…. the bad thing about it is, you never see the photos she takes. Just ask my sister, she’ll tell you all about it. All of that changed this week when my sister and niece viewed the images I shot only two weeks ago. Yassss, Aunty of the year!

  • My favourite thing to capture... hands down is love. If you look for it, it’s everywhere.
