Photography Location Guide: Brighton Park

Ideal Family Portrait Location for All Portrait Photography Overall Rating ★★★★★ This is one of my newest locations and is turning out to be one of my favourites!  Not only is it a beautiful and versatile family portrait location, but it also isn't overcrowded.   It offers a variety of scenery which is perfect for families who can't decide between the water and the serene green backdrop. This location can be used for both morning and afternoon sessions. Access and Parking ★★★★ At the end of the road, there is a small carpark available. Once parked there is a short walk via a concrete path down to where we commence the sessions which is suitable for those who are unsteady on their feet. Amenities ★★ This North Brisbane Portrait location has minimal amenities.  There are is no toilets available, but there is a drinking fountain near the car park.  We recommend bringing some water along if required for the session. Best time of day for your session ★★★★ This location is great for morning or afternoon sessions, whatever the weather, sun, cloud or even stormy skies. Morning sessions here are best before 10 am and afternoon around an hour before sunset. Not only is Brighton Park popular for portraits but you will also find it quite busy with those out walking the dogs or exercising.  When using this spot, we just need to be mindful of those around us. Morning Session Afternoon Session Variety ★★★★★ This location packs a punch when it comes to variety, and has so much to offer! On the sand - Morning & Afternoon Amongst the trees - Morning & Afternoon Golden light on the sand - Afternoon only On the grassy field – Morning & Afternoon Wow Factor ★★★★★ The wow factor here is the variety of backdrops we can use for a session.  It caters for every taste and session style. The sun-drenched sand and water in the afternoon is just the perfect way to end a session. In Summary This location is great for all portrait styles, families, pets, children, maternity and even large group generations. There is something for everyone here, from the grass to the trees to the sand and water. This location has it all… if you don’t mind the locals walking past, then this location could be perfect for you.

Family of 3 North Lakes Portrait

Lake Eden Morning Portrait We met Shannon and the family at the Pregnancy Baby Child expo, where they entered our competition and won a runners up prize! Little Freyja looked super cute and I absolutely loved her little floral outfit! It was a pretty fresh morning down at Lake Eden but we had beautiful light and assisting me Kiara who was spending a few days work experience with me. Kiara is a local student who loves photography and has photography in her blood, as her father is also a photographer. We started the session on the little bridge down by the lake and then finished up under the big tree opposite the park.  The ones under the tree are often the most favoured by families when I use this shooting location. With young ones, a morning portrait is often preferable and this location is a great example of an ideal spot for morning family photos.  It has beautiful soft light and a super backdrop with some variety between the bridge and the beautiful trees. If you would love to book a morning session with us at this perfect little location, then please get in touch through our contact form below.

Being a mum

Being a mum is the best job in the world! My boys are 15 now… yes we are on the homeward straight to freedom and an easy life… or are we?? Life is certainly easier than it used to be. I like to say that we are ‘getting some return on our investment’. My boys can mow the lawns now, wash the car, help with the washing and even, on occasion, cook dinner. Best of all, they even help out in my business… for money of course For those that know me, you will know that my number one priority is my family. It always has been. For most of the last 15 years my family has come first. Before friends, before my business and often before myself. Having kids was always just a given and we couldn’t have been happier when we found out we were having twins! For my husband Richard and I, we wanted to be there for them and have been lucky enough to be able to spend as much time with them as we can. I didn’t want to go back to work when I had the kids and we knew this before they were even conceived… years before. In fact, when we bought our first and second house (one in the UK and one here in Aus) we went small. We made sure that the mortgage and all living expenses could be covered by Richard’s wage so that I didn’t have to make the choice about returning to work. I would begin work when I wanted to. I know that not everyone has this luxury or even wants this as an option. I have plenty of career-driven friends who have kids and always planned to return to work. The best part about your life is choosing what you want to do! I commend them although I don’t know how they do it! Working and looking after little ones is hard graft. I was never a great house wife… my husband knows this… he is tidier. I spent the early years of our boys lives playing cars, painting, building lego… the washing and cleaning was often at the bottom of my list… I prioritized playing with the kids… and still do! These days hanging out with two teenage boys involves a lot of physical activity!!! Aqua splash, trampoline, swimming, running, music, you name it we do it together… and better than that, they want me (and Richard) to be part of it with them. Things may change in the next few years as they grow and form lifelong friendships, learn to drive and potentially fly the nest… or maybe I’ll have those kids who are still at home at 30, happy to hang out with Mum and Dad on a Saturday night watching a movie or playing a boardgame. All I know is that I will savior every minute that I spend with them. You never know what life is going to bring. My own Mum passed away when I was just 6. It is really important to be present when you’re with them… and yes, do things that they love to do… just like those Dad’s that have pamper sessions with their young daughters, I will run around a gel blasting field shooting people, just so I can spend time with my family. Remember that they are only young once and grow so quick. Hug them everyday and tell them that you love them and make spending just a little bit of time with them your priority. The most important thing to remember is that above all, you are doing a great job and have the best job in the world! Go Mum Go We’re proud of you! wHERE TO NEXT? {{ vc_btn: title=About+Us&color=mulled-wine&size=lg&align=center&link=url%3Ahttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.bacphotography.com.au%252Fabout-bac-photography%252F%7Ctarget%3A_blank }}{{ vc_btn: title=Prices+%26amp%3B+Products&color=mulled-wine&size=lg&align=center&link=url%3Ahttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.bacphotography.com.au%252Fportrait-price-list%252F%7Ctarget%3A_blank }}{{ vc_btn: title=Contact+Us&color=mulled-wine&size=lg&align=center&link=url%3Ahttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.bacphotography.com.au%252Fportrait-price-list%252F%7Ctarget%3A_blank }}
