The Russell Family have always understood the importance of family. With two active little boys growing up so fast, it’s really easy to miss moments if you just look away for one second! Does that sound like your family?
We headed out to Centennial Park to find a quiet spot to celebrate their boys growing up. Little Ryan so loved to follow and copy whatever his brother Liam was doing, and their parents really wanted to capture that mood while they were still so young.
Parents are often concerned whether their young children will behave and perform for the camera. I’m sure every parent can empathise. It was not different for this family. When they went out it was often hard to get the boys to stay in one place or to listen to instructions. We tell parents not to worry about that. As professional photographers specialising in children’s photography, we have special techniques to capture your family in a natural and authentic way, as you see on our many sessions here.
It’s not about making your kids behave in a way we want. Our approach is to capture them as they are, in a beautiful way. To do that we get to know you and your family. We learn what makes each of you tick, and the connection between each parent and each child. We learn your kids’ personalities, so that they can relate to us. When the times comes for your photographic session, we are all there to have fun together. We know what to expect, and we are in the right place just as the magic happens. And so you get beautiful photographs.
On this day we played many different games, and really let the boys do what they enjoyed and express their personalities. It was all fun and exciting, and the boys were keen to look at the photographs on the back of the camera. Once they know they have the freedom to enjoy themselves, they will show you something magical. It’s not about posing them in some old fashioned cheesy photos. We really let their connection shine and create artwork they will all treasure as they grow up.
The Russell Family also had a big family overseas. The great thing about our photographic sessions is that you can get a custom phone app to share all your treasured moments with friends and family. Instead of fiddling with digital files that you lose when you break your phone or computer, our fully featured app has built in features so you can share how you like.
