Last weekend we had a great afternoon with Monica, Alex and their little son Chase for a family portrait session. These guys have been our friends for a long time, and it has been great to see them thriving in their new role as parents. The soft, golden afternoon light was just perfect and the park provided ample space for Chase to run around and play with his ball – which he was completely enamored by. He may have quite a career in football or soccer, one day! It’s always a delight to see the cheeky expressions and moments captured on camera from children at this special age where they are discovering so many new things about themselves and the world around them. We’re really happy to share these images with you:
I really enjoy shooting engagement sessions as it is an opportunity to capture the connection between two people in love with each other.
Jess and Paul were great to photograph and I could see their excitement about getting married in a only a few weeks time!
Here are a few images from our fun and relaxed afternoon at Blackburn Lake in Melbourne, and a quote that captures a little of the essence of love.
‘The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.’ – Helen Keller
Welcome to Bangladesh. Have some tea. Dodge multiple buses on the highway. Stop for another cuppa. Eat rice and daal. Followed by more tea. Belt out impromptu renditions of Australian anthem. Smiling kids. Lots of dust. More tea.
For the past three weeks I have been working in Bangladesh, covering hundreds of kilometres and more than 50 hours on rural roads to visit work being done with extremely poor, marginal, ‘at-risk’ communities. We walked through rice paddies, through slums where homes are made of plastic rice sacks sewn together and crossed meandering rivers on public ferries. The most memorable times were sitting, chatting and laughing together with the groups that we visited. Bangladesh’s treasure is truly its people.
For me, community development done well, sends the message that ‘you are not forgotten or alone’, and that ‘your life matters’.
All images below were taken with permission, where this was possible.
Here are a couple of images taken recently using a macro lens. The beauty of this lens is that you can take close up images – perfect for photographing detail.
Also, don’t forget our engagement competition is closing on the 29th of Feb. If you’re an engaged couple, you could win a free engagement photo shoot. For more information, check out this link: www.kellyanthony.com/blog/2012/01/win-an-engagement-photo-shoot/
