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…

Romance in Harold Boas Gardens

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, December 15, 2007

Have been doing a project for a while now – a family shoot extended over a longer period of time.  Tried this with a few people but for one reason or another, til now, it just hasn’t got to completion stage.  Today was time for the couple themselves,… alone,… 3 young children not tagging along,… just husband and wife alone in a fabulous park right in the centre of Perth city.

Now this park just has to be the best kept secret in West Australia.  Awesome place.  Great lighting. Fabulous opportunity to relax and take some romantic pics like they haven’t had since they were married a million years ago.  Well maybe not so long but sometimes when the little feet start pounding the household all attention seems to permanently go there too. Got some brilliant photos – they were right into one another and quickly got the hang of ignoring photographer and assistant.

So a couple of pics…


Quite Relaxed
