I’ve yet to undertake a family photo shoot I haven’t enjoyed. Perhaps I’ve been lucky, but the families I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with have been a joy to photograph.
The Hitchcock family was no exception. Three sisters and their Mum on a Autumnal afternoon at Bar Beach, Newcastle. Warm, no crowds, softening light and a beautiful coastal location.
Best of all? My daughter is friends with one of the subjects; she accompanied me as my “photographer’s assistant”. She took this task fairly seriously, promising to entertain the girls and keep the us all on track. In the end, it was too much for her; she stripped to her swimmers and joined the girls chasing waves.
The Hitchcock sisters were relaxed and not bothered by my presence, their personalities shining through.
I’ve featured some of my favourite images below and more are available here. The images of Sharni, Lilah & Josette interacting with cheeky seagulls are my absolute faves.
Thanks to Emma for allowing me to share her family memories.
