A Walk Through The Woods


“A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood…”

With two adventurous boys, this lovely family were very keen to head off for a little explore in the woods for their photo session. I love doing shoots like this. Watching the excitement on everyones faces and the imagination unfold, as you enter a natural playground filled with Mother Nature gems! There’s normally a 10 minute window (if you’re lucky!) to get kids to stay focused for photos. But when you let them run free in a place like this, it’s a win-win. Happy kids = happy parents… Which then means the photographer is presented with an abundance of opportunities to capture some memories in the most natural way. Everyone is relaxed… 

Leading up to this session, we watched the weather in the hope for some dreamy golden hour light. When we arrived at our location, we hadn’t expected planned burning – The whole area was covered in a smokey haze! This created a different kind of mystical light to play with. So good!!! By the time we finished exploring, the smoke had cleared and brought in a lovely warm light. These guys did so well and it’s clearly evident from the photos, that they love adventure! There are so many awesome locations to choose from here in the Macedon Ranges… And I’m enjoying visiting them with families for sessions like this. We really are spoilt for choice on where we can go… I hope you enjoy the pics! 🙂
