Some events are just plain fun Regardless, theres always a lot going on and its the interactions, expressions and characters I'm looking for.
Try telling 5 kids that a family portrait will be fun ! We started by grabbing a footy & basketball and headed for the local park. Around 40 minutes later we were walking back to their home without a single complaint. That's how it should be...Fun !

Babies are always great fun to photograph and at times unpredictable. Babies seem to have a timetable of their own, so patience is always needed.
