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).

Frank’s Progeny In Kings Park

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, December 10, 2007

Someone once said, … before me that is,… life is a journey; sometimes the pathway is paved in gold and sometimes a herd of cattle has been there before we travel over it.  Someone else said that… life is not a sprint,… it’s a marathon.   So I suppose in the end it’s not really what we do in random moments but rather what we leave on the pathway for those that follow us.

When I was preparing this photo I thought for a moment or two about Frank’s progeny. Many years separate them.  They will ultimately travel their own journeys.  But Frank has, and is still, sowing into their lives.  His legacy is not really what he does or how much money he makes but rather has he prepared them for their own life journey?  I reckon he must have done something right – both seemed pretty well balanced and relational to me.  And they certainly relaxed as we took these formal pics in the surrounds of Kings Park.

Want somewhere to go with your family and relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the Aussie bush in the midst of the bustling city? Maybe a picnic one summers evening.  Go to Kings Park.  And if you take me along with you I can take some fabulous relaxed photos at the same time. Give me call – contact details on the ABOUT page top right.

End of Season Awards

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, October 13, 2007

Twice in a month I’ve featured Ryan. Good cause though. He had a pretty reasonable season of footy and his team – Whitford Warriors – made the finals. So a pic of him and his fabulous wife from just before heading into the celebrations at the Rendezvous.
