In home portrait, or on the land… so to speak
I was really excited when I organised this family portrait with the Newell’s. It was to be on their property up a Beerwah, which just happens to be the family business too… a Macadamia Farm.
What a beautiful setting it was too. With the best time of day for outdoor portraits being the last 1-2 hours before sunset, that’s of course when we organised it. The first date was rained off with a big storm (thank you Queensland weather), so we re-scheduled it in and hooray, the weather was kind. We had worried that the sun might not even come out and that it might just be overcast but no the sun shone on us and a fantastic portrait session we had.
In anticipation of our session, Kirsty picked out a nice row in between the Macadamia trees and got the mower out to cut the grass.. only to find that when I arrived, I much preferred the long grass! To the eye the long grass can look messy but in a portrait, it kind of just blends into the image.
My favourite photo (although I have many), is the one with the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains in the background.. what a fantastic view from your backdoor!
Thank you so much for having me at your place, you are one lucky family!
