the dobson family

I always get excited when a client says they want their shoot done at home. New locations keep me fresh and inspired. It’s also extra special for a family to look back on their photos when they are taken in a location that means something to them. The Dobson’s family home is surrounded by hills and countryside with trees that have white trunks. It’s been a long time since it’s rained so the surroundings have a monochromatic colour scheme – I love this!
I always say, the hardest part of getting family photos done is getting ready! The shoot itself is relaxed. We wandered around the property, chatted, stopping for the shots I needed, often getting photobombed by cows.
A few weeks after the shoot I went back out to the Dobson’s home and it looked like a different location. It had rained!

  • 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!  Check out Karlee on the blog, link in bio.

  • My favourite thing to capture... hands down is love. If you look for it, it’s everywhere.
  • Family coming together really is the best part about Christmas. This year I am not going away, so if you want to document having everyone in the same spot get in contact now to lock in a shoot. Megan.
