Adelaide Family Session: The Conklins



I introduced you to my sister Kate over in my last blog post about the Bowerbird Bazaar. She is a Speech Pathologist, avid quilt designer and mother to 3 children, each with their own very different personality. Well she called the other day asking if I could come over to her lovely house in the Adelaide hills and take some shots of her beautiful children so that they could fill the home with images of them.

Her husband Todd couldn't make it but it was such a special day where I got to delve into their little personalities and pause time in such a magical time in their lives. Getting them in one place and sitting still was a near impossible task but we made it happen :) I don't get to see them very often as I live interstate so every time I do I get to know a new facet of them.

I must say that culling the photos after the session was very hard, especially when they are photos of your loved ones. I tried various was of editing this session just to mix it up so tell me what you think :)

I hope that this offers a glimpse into their little unique hearts.



































































Tomorrow I'm doing another family session so stay tuned for that one :)
