One of Five

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, January 5, 2008

After the last post about my marathon “family” shoot I said some pics of the various couples would be were coming. OK,… Here’s one that were clearly not afraid to trust me as I put them out on the edge of the rocks for their pics. Couldn’t have been all that comfortable there but they took it in their stride, relaxed and got real close and personal.

I really would have liked to have spent more time with each couple but with 26 people and a million combinations it’s not always possible in the one session. Nonetheless I think they come across pretty personable. In fact the whole family were great as we worked to get relaxed/relational pics in very contrasty conditions (it is summer in sunny West Australia after all).


and I really love the shots I was getting here…

Christmas 2007

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, December 25, 2007

WOW! Christmas 2007 in Perth is scorching summers day – around 38c and the air-con is running hard. Weather Bureau says this is going to be the hottest Christmas Period since 1919 – 36 yesterday, 39 today, 40+ tomorrow and the next day will also be a hot one. So very different to many of our friends and readers around the world who haveChristmas as a winter experience.

Nonetheless we are celebrating the Birth of Christ and the beginning of the story. So this morning before the gifts were dispersed I took a pic of the Christmas tree that bore the handiwork of each contributing member. Blue lights on the tree contrasting to the normal lighting. It was great. My pic of the day is our 2007 Christmas Tree!

My hope and prayer is that wherever you are for Christmas that it will be a blessing to you and the year ahead will be a positive experience. Happy Christmas.

Waiting,… .

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, November 5, 2007

Took some pics of Karen,… she’s been waiting … and growing … for 9 1/2 months. This is one of my favourites.

Oh yes and the boys were there too. Seth [the daddy in waiting] gets into some – maybe tomorrow I will put one up with him alongside his beautiful wife. And the twins – Karen’s puppy dogs – they were there just as fast as their little legs would let them 🙂

But you will have to wait til later in the week for some of them. Today it’s just Karen; who deserves centre of attention.Contemplating the ‘almost there’ of pregnancy

Pending Motherhood

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, September 26, 2007

Question: “When does motherhood commence?” I mean, does a woman move into motherhood in the midst of giving birth?… or does motherhood begin when she intentionally begins preparing for it? Just a thought that I drifted into while preparing these photos.

What we have today is 3 pics of a great woman who is slowly, yet intentionally, moving from the realm of scientific exactness into the world of being a mother … and all that which is somewhat less than exact and ordered and controlled. Nonetheless I tried to capture the picture of a person who has been mentally and emotionally preparing herself (an hubby too) for the arrival of a bub. She’s definitely in the status of a “lady in waiting. Around 7 or 8 weeks to go. She will be a great mother. Her bub is in safe hands.
